GA-J3455N-D3H build


Recommended Posts

After a lot of reading and experimenting I would like to share my experience with running Xpenology on GA-J3455N-D3H motherboard.

My setup:
Mainboard: GA-J3455N-D3H
Memory: 16 GB (2x 8 GB modules) DDR3L 1600 MHz
Drives: 120 GB SSD, 2x 2 TB SATA HDD (RAID 1)
Network: 2x onboard Realtek 8168
DSM version: 6.2.3-25426 Update 3
Use case: SMB storage, Media Server, Docker, Hass.io

Both 918+ via 1.04b and 3617xs/3615xs via 1.03b loader works.

- 918+/1.04b should be booted with CSM, for me plain UEFI boot always resulted in incredibly slow and unreliable operation

- Transcoding should be possible with 918+/1.04b loader (not tested)
- Both 3617xs and 3615xs need extra.lzma with r8168 driver
- WOL works when ErP disabled in BIOS


Because I have no use for transcoding, I've ended up with 3615xs via legacy boot, for me it provides fastest boot, best latencies and transfer rates.

Only minor issue, which I've encountered with all three variants, is a litte bit sluggish and laggy SSH connection.
