What hardware are you using?


Recommended Posts

Hardware: Laptop Compaq NX7400 

Processor: INTEL Core i3-4130

Internal memory: 4GB

Drives:

  • 2 x Seagate HDD 2.5"1TB ST1000LM024 S-ATA2 8mb (removed CDplayer for second disk. Using a drive-bay)
    Maybe it's possible to put the 2 drive in RAID-1 but i'm not intended to do so.
  • 1 x 1TB Freecom drive
  • 1 x 512mb usb Thumbdrive (Xpenoboot 5.2)

Packages running:

Downloadstation

Proxyserver

java 8

Craftbukkit

Adjusments: Mac addres and Serial 

DSM version: DSM 5.2-5644 Update 3

Why using a laptop:

I wanted to achieve a low powered solution.

This setup consumes 15 watt in idle state and 18 watt when waching movies and players using Crafbukkit. 

System is running 24/7 and stable.

Labtop lid allways closed.

Main purpose:

Movie and TV-show content only.

And the extra you get when using a laptop (depending on state of battery) :

It keeps running for 1 or even 2 hours when there is a power outage.

I was about to buy an entry-level Synology DS, but then I found out about Xpenology, so naturally I tried it right away. No problems whatsoever. I have had this little ITX board for several years as my Ubuntu server/HTPC and it served me great. Now, seeing that the installation and setting up went flawlessly, I can hope it will continue to make me happy.

Case nzxt

 

as above it was just a test everything seemed to work as id expect mobo usb worked cause integrated usb 3.0 worked along with a usb keyboard worked

 

surprisingly the gtx 980 outputted to screen

 

the dual ethernet on mobo gave 2 separate ip both worked wasnt any special setup like assigning ip to specific programs

 

quickly tested docker installed couchpotato worked fine

 

not sure if needed to test anything special, but bare in mind its a test on my games pc HW maybe a tad OTT for a NAS

Just wanted to post my skylake build. To make people available to google it, or ask questions.

 

CPU: Intel Core i3-6100T

Ram: Kingston HyperX 8GB DDR4

Motherboard: Gigabyte H170N-WIFI

HDD: 5x4TB WD RED

Case: Silverstone DS380 +

CPU-Cooler: Noctua NH-L9i Low profile

PSU: Corsair SF450 450W

 

Everything seems to work (not the WIFI obviously). EXCEPT my LSI 9211 i8 HBA. It works on SHR-1 but as soon I create a SHR-2 diskgroup the system crashes, and the diskgroup fails and need a rebuild. (And it repeats, so a whole system wipe is necessary)

Any ideas to a solution is welcome.
