I don't think this board is even available in North America yet. While I think baremetal install would work, you may not get Turbo boost, which will limit the CPU freq to 1.5GHZ on this board.

I would also like to know if it works, some say only 2 cores are active at the time but another user that have similar board says it is working OK ? only the cpu is J3455 which is tha same unit as J4205 with lower clock.

 

Anybody ?

when SSHing into the machine you can see all 4 cores working. I think I posted a screenshot somewhere. The problem is that it's running at base speed (1.5-1.6mhz). Some people say you can lock it in at 2.4mhz, but for me it's not an issue.

Found nowhere. Where did you buy it?

 

I found 3455 board on Newegg. It took a while to get it, but I think these days it should be easy to get one.

 

Remember to buy the NON B version. It only has 2 SATA ports.

^^ I got this one. The prices went up by $25 btw. So look out maybe there are other boards you can buy. 

 

I have my eye on(maybe next year):

Test4321,

 

How's it going with the ASRock J3455-ITX   (or did you get the "B" version).

 

You're saying, "running at base speed (1.5-1.6mhz)" is not an issue, because for your purposes you don't really need the extra speed ?

 

Otherwise, no major issues ?

 

Thanks !

@sbv3000

I think you mean J3455M ASRock,  right ?,  not Asus ?

The link leads to an ASRock J3455M

Dear All!

J3455-ITX asrock + ASM1061  2 internal sata additionnal card (for a total 6 HDD) is on the road.

 What image of DSM do you advice me?  DS918+ would be the best but I've read No loader is ready, so do you advise me DS3617xs or DS916+ ?

DS916+ is 4 HDD: is it okay to have 6?

Nota : For the moment I own HP microserver N40L (AMD base) with 6 HDD and an additionnal NIC card which locks me to DSM 6.0.2 DS3617xs

 

thanks

Let us know how it goes. I'm thinking of using the same J3455-ITX mobo and I'd be quite interested.

 

By the way, for that answer you found - you're actually linking to  #comment-79185  on that page (the one in red), which is obviously not the right one.

Which particular reply were you referring to ?

@kbarb I was referring to : "newer like j3455 which i usewith ds916+ image. "

I used the link of the comment as you described.

 

I should be able to start working on Nas on next Sunday. I only hope that I won't have conflict between the 2 sata chipset (onboard and on the added card is same ) asmedia 1061.

 

I don't know if hardware acceleration will work. I know that I will have to dig the serial number thread.

Just built a machine with the latest Gemini Lake rev of this board, J4105-ITX.  It works perfectly baremetal, no drivers required.

 

A pretty nice XPEnology setup for a 4-bay NAS, 4x 2.5Ghz cores and 4 SATA ports for $85 USD.  Expandable to 32GB RAM (ignore the false 8GB limit in the manual).
