Hello there,

 

My name is Michel, I'm based in Belgium and doing technical presales in the telecom/IT security world.

Built my first XPEnology in VMWare, was quite straightforward I have to say.

 

Also built my first baremetal rig, Intel i3 based. Works with no issues so far & still learning :)

I'll provide details of this rig in another post. I did spend 40€ on this hardware :P

Hi.

 

Gerhardt here from South Africa.

 

I recently got the .pat file for DS3617sx running (but not the DS916+ one?) on an old Dell E6420 laptop of mine in order to familiarize myself with the DSM operating system.

 

I really like the the potential of running the Synology DSM on my own hardware so I'm already planning on a custom-built NAS to store my media as well as run the surveillance around my house.

 

I trust that this community is the go-to place for info and support.

 

Cheers.

Hi at all

Rolf here from Switzerland.

Iam using Synology Boxes for almost 1 decade and i am really satisfy with them,but i am planning to make my own NAS from scrab will say do the case by myself because i am a mecanic.

And it will be done silent with passive cooling of the CPU with Heatpipe.

I will do it with six HD Cases like this one : see Picture below

Mainboard will be : C2550D4I - ASROCK MAINBOARD MINI-ITX INTEL AVOTON C2550 4-CORE CPU 4xDIMM DDR3 see Picture below

4 RAM : Kingston KVR13R9S4L/8 see Picture below

I hope i got no Problem with that Hardware because i am new to this but have read a lot in this forum and also study the howto from Polanskiman.I will use Jun's Loader 1.02b with the DS3615xs Image.I will post some pictures in the future of building the NAS.

Hi, I am an old time Synology user. My first DS207+ unit died shortly after it was no longer supported in newer versions of DSM. Now I am looking to make that unit operational again using a new SBC, new disks and XPEnology. The plan is to get most of the existing external controls and connectors operational again. The biggest challenge is to find an STB with suitable dimensions, power characteristics and IO capabilities. The UP-squared board is a great candidate as is the GA-SBCAP3350. The simplest integration looks to be the SBCAP3350 as it has two internal SATA connectors and dual SATA power. The board is fairly power efficient and uses a single DC power input, so it can be powered from the external power unit. The SBC supports 4 USB ports and has two PCIe internal connectors for possible other IO boards. The SRC also supports a case fan, and various front panel lights and switches, similar to the one on the DS207+. 

I have been doing hardware projects from time to time both professionally and privately. My first hardware project was more than 30 years ago. I have designed PCB's, written various unix device drivers and designed a few VLSI chips. 

The main goal of the project is to see if it is possible to make an old unit operational again, retaining the old school looks but with updated internals.

Hello,

 

I am geky and an owner of 2 synology NASs from 2014.

I am preparing to build my first XPENOLOGY and have ordered the parts already.

 

I will surely ask questions in other parts of the forum, for the time I am busy reading the information about the XPENOLOGY project and loaders etc.

Hi all,

I'm software developer and I am trying to set up a xpenology in an old computer. I didn't know about this until a friend told me about a personal server at home.

 

It'a very good option for keep backups and use it as media server.

 

See you!
