Upgrading The QNAP TS-870 NAS – New CPU And RAM

hey individuals Jarrod hello and also today we’re mosting likely to update the CPU as well as RAM in my qnap TS 817 s because well why not practically 2 years ago I purchased this QNAP TS 817 s to save the majority of my data on it’s been wonderful as I can centrally access documents anywhere on my network in your home by default the nez video game installed with an intel celeron g1 620 cpu at 2.7 gigahertz with 2 cpu cores as well as no hyper-threading there’s likewise a single 2 gigabyte stick of ddr3 ram at 1333 megahertz while these fundamental specs have been alright as well as I truthfully haven’t discovered any efficiency problems I intended to try some simple upgrades that won’t assist in speeding points up for years ahead first we’ll consider the CPU this specific NAS makes use of the intel outlet 1155 so i could essentially get any kind of cpu that would fit this to replace the lower rate silla space as an outlet as end of life I had to view with different 3000 series I 3i 5 and also a seven CPUs especially T as well as s series chips CPUs finishing in s have a peak TDP of 65 watts while CPUs ending in T have a peak TDP of 35 or 45 watts this is mainly for power performance and as is typically a reduced power tool and also as I leave it running

24/7 and also the CPU is cooled down by a passive system a chip with low TDP is definitely more suitable in the long run I discovered an i-5 34 70s for 110 dollars Australian in my location so I can reduce down on cracking this is a four core CPU 2.9 gigahertz and can turbo as much as 3.6 gigahertz with a 65 watt TDP there’s no hyper-threading available right here however I chose that it must be great as we’re still increasing the complete core matter from the stock CPU and also boosting the rate while the optimal power draw is a little more than I mirror its only 10 watts greater than the initial chip so it ought to be great with the supply cooling system in relation to memory there are two Ram ports readily available with just one of them in operation with a 2 gigabyte stick this design of registered nurse supports approximately 16 gigabytes of RAM so I bought 2 8 gigabyte sticks of salt memory at 1600 megahertz for around 100 astray dollars sir 8 times the amount of RAM and also slightly faster currently I’ll stroll you through what’s included in the upgrade procedure bear in mind that this will void your guarantee the devices I utilized were a couple of different dimensions of phillips head screwdriver in addition to an irreversible marker so that i might note

cords prior to starting make certain that you have disconnected the NASS from the panel also note that there is a great deal of shop steel inside so take care when you’re jabbing around so to start with we basically intend to take off the instance of the nests and also to do this you simply need to unscrew the six screws throughout the outsides of the covering after this side it in fact have a little bit of difficulty standing out the situation off so I used a flathead screwdriver to tear around the sides until it primarily clicked up and I had the ability to slide the entire point off after this I start utilizing a long-term pen to start noting several of the wires to ensure that I can plug them back in when rebuilding next I start taking several of the screws out of the back generally those around the power supply as well as network adapter card hereafter I begin taking out the rest of the screws from the back with the exemption of the screws that are holding the followers in there’s also three screws below the nest so do not forget those as well as there’s additionally one on the bottom on each side next I obtain the network adapter card and also unplug the

fans while I’m at it now I remove the tiny screw which is between both audio jacks as well as there’s additionally a concealed screw behind one of the sticker labels as soon as all those screws are out you must have the ability to simply pop off the back next I start taking the screws out from the power supply as that’s complimentary in the center and also in the means so I wish to relocate that off the beaten track ideally now I realize that I’m mosting likely to need to move the tough drive back plane out due to the fact that it’s connecting directly into the mainboard as well as in order to do this I need to take out the disks I most likely should have done this at the beginning as well as I ‘d recommend taking them out from the start if you’re going via with this upgrade you don’t truly wish to have those disks in the Nats while you’re relocate around as well as working with it as soon as the disk drives are out I take the cables out from the power supply which are connecting into the disk drive backplane and primary board next I begin unscrewing some of the screws which are holding the CPU cooler on the primary board for the

CPU to the actual situation of the NASS itself a bunch of these screws also hold the hard disk drive backplane in position which I need to attempt and get out of the means so that I can separate it from the mainboard this is among the parts that will certainly invalidate your service warranty does guarantee sticker covering one of the screws on the back of the mainboard so I basically simply relocate that off the beaten track and afterwards loosen the four screws which are holding that board in area there’s likewise a sheet of plastic on the back which appears like it’s doing a quite excellent task at covering it from dust so I cleaned that off as well as use it again when i reassemble to keep dust off the primary board once the main board is unscrewed I’m not truly able to move it off the beaten track as the tough drive back plane is still put into the major board so to get this out I need to loosen it further so that I can try and also move it in an outward direction I needed to utilize a longer than average screwdriver in order to actually get to the screws as they were in a little a weird placement but afterwards it moved out pretty quickly once disconnected I just needed to relocate the back of the nose case and with the extend of the method and afterwards I had the ability to relocate the primary board out when I had the board out there was this solitary ribbon cable that was connected into the nests it had a pair of melted plastic pieces holding it in place so I merely scraped these off with my fingers as well as then I’m able to get rid of the bow cord and entirely remove the main board from the body of the NASS to

make sure that I can begin working with it once I have actually got the main board entirely removed the initial thing I do is take out that two gigabyte stick of RAM when this is done I open up both eight job sticks I purchased as well as placed those right into the slots and also that’s generally all there is for the RAM upgrade currently for the CPU upgrade I start by loosening the screws of the heatsink from the mainboard to make sure that I can completely get rid of that heatsink as well as obtain to the CPU once I’ve gotten rid of the heatsink I get rid of the thermal paste off and after that open up the CPU outlet as well as secure the old CPU afterwards I get the brand-new CPU placed it in the outlet and after that I begin to apply my thermal paste I probably must shut the socket initially before using the thermal paste but I think it actually matters also much after the thermal paste is being used I shut the socket and after that obtain the CPU heatsink as well as start screwing it back evenly into the board and that’s basically all there is to it the RAM as well as CPU upgrade are currently full so all that’s delegated do is reassemble the nests which is basically the reverse procedure of what I simply stated so this will certainly begin with affixing that bow wire back to the

mainboard and afterwards delicately sliding the mainboard back right into its initial position after this I move the hard disk back aircraft back in affix the cables and after that screw the mainboard back into the body of the nests hereafter it’s just a situation of putting all the screws back in retouching the network expansion card and also screwing the power supply back into area after that you simply want to screw the back of the instance right into the body of the nests once it’s all screwed back with each other you should be able to put the situation of the registered nurse back on and after that screw that right into location at this moment I put my disk drives back in in the exact same order that I took them out and also after that I place the 3 screws back into the bottom of the nests to ensure that’s all there is to it the entire point took me a little over an hour after rebuilding the nests obviously I had one screw left over oops so currently that the upgrade is total let’s have a look at some of the before as well as after criteria to see what the modifications in fact did upon logging right into the internet user interface of the nurse we can see that the brand-new hardwood was appropriately discovered the initial test I ran was to transfer a 105 megabyte video data from 1080p to 240p 360p 480p and 720p prior to the upgrade on the stock CPU this took 2 minutes as well as 23 seconds to finish after the upgrading transcoding

the same data took simply 45 seconds many thanks to the better carrying out CPU I made use of HD palm with the top situation dash T flag which functions with cache to get an idea of the read speeds of memory prior to the upgrade I obtained around 6.5 gigabytes per 2nd as well as after I got about 25 gigabytes per second verifying the brand-new memory is assisting out here next I placed 1 gigabyte of RAM and also course data to it to obtain a suggestion of the create rates we can see here that after the upgrade the amount of time required to create one gigabyte data is virtually two times as rapid going from around 600 nanoseconds to 300 milliseconds I likewise performed some basic hashing tests by hashing the very same information as md5 sha-1 sha-256 and sha-512 the results are a little faster here showing the enhanced single-threaded efficiency of the upgraded CPU the updated CPU additionally has a EES ni instructions which basically quicken a es encryption procedures at the equipment level instead of relying on software to look after it I’m seeking to encrypt the entire mess in the future so this functionality will certainly be put to excellent use and I have consequently run some standard encryption criteria as we can see below the after outcomes in every one of these a EES tests are greater with the brand-new CPU as expected in

some tests the difference was not as well much while in others it was greater than five times faster I located that the temperature levels were a little much better with the brand-new CPU under full tons the selarón CPU was sitting around 51 levels Celsius while the upgraded CPU was sitting at 48 degrees Celsius throughout the exact same examinations the temperature level of the space I was checking in was around 22 degrees Celsius at the time throughout both examinations the still temperature both prior to as well as after the upgrade was around 46 levels Celsius to ensure that’s basically it we can see that the upgrades have boosted things though admittedly this most likely won’t have as well numerous obvious real-world improvements for me I’ve been taking into consideration upgrading the network to 10 gigabit however after running a neighborhood storage standard on the nurse directly and also not over the network I’m only getting around 120 megabytes per 2nd appropriate speed anyhow which isn’t far more than gigabit rates so this wouldn’t truly deserve it unless I’m making use of SSD storage occasion it’s not

presently useful to replace the disks with SSDs and I do not really want to have to utilize an entire bay for a situation drive either as I like to have mass storage rather additionally the prices connected with mounting a 10 gigabit NIC in the nests and also my computer are quite high as a result of these reasons 10 gigabit is on hold a minimum of in the meantime in future I could also check out replacing the fans with something a bit much better and also silent off stock fans perform at 600 rpm while idling as well as are a little too audible for my preference so allow’s share it it’s not too hard to enter the nest as well as do these upgrades it’s essentially a small lower end server or PC when it comes down the parts and replacing them I liked that it had not been secured down and also I can in fact enter their type these upgrades if I wish to sure it’ll nullify the warranty yet it’s a good optional means to raise the power of your Nasus if you require it thanks for viewing and if you appreciated this video make certain to leave a like and also comment if you have any type of concerns or comments also don’t fail to remember to subscribe for future video clips like this one
