my NAS with Asrock J3455-ITX

    • OMV 4.x
    • my NAS with Asrock J3455-ITX

      Just want to introduce my NAS, I´ll make it short - english is not my language
      The Asrock MB was not the best choice I guess, really difficult to setup for me (not much experience with Linux) and I ran into a lot of troubles during setup, this Forum gave me a lot of help just by searching :)
      But thats the fun with building something on your own.
      The Case is rather big, not a Problem for me, it has a lot of space inside and everything stays cool and silent.
      I use it as Mediaserver for KODI with WOL and Autoshutdown

      OMV = 4.0.16-1 (4.14.0.bpo.2-amd64)
      Case = Thermaltake Versa H15
      MB = Asrock J3455-ITX
      RAM = Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3L 1600 MT/s (PC3L-12800)
      SSD = (old) 64GB Crucical via USB3 Adapter (Sabrent USB 3.0 zu SSD)
      PSU = PicoPSU-90 12V
      HDD = 2x WD RED 4TB 1x WD RED 8TB (need to buy another 8TB)

    • I run an Asrock AM1H-ITX with Athlon 5350 Quadcore and 16 GB of RAM with 3x6 TB WD Red and an 32 GB SSD (SLC USB), 2 chassis fans with an 90W laptop powersupply attached directly to the mainbaord. The drives get their power through the board, there is a SATA-power header. I assambled my power cable by myself due to the fact, that you can only buy ones with 1->2 not 1->3 setup. Works like a cham. My build

    • @myscha: Do you use your setup headless? 21W vor 2 drives with this board is moderat, but could be lower. Did you deactive the soundchip within UEFI? Do you use DDR3L SO-Dimms? Whats your power supply? Does UEFI offer a voltage adjustment?

    • I am Sorry, I cant measure the power consumption, guess I should buy something for that.
      I use the PicoPSU90 together with an "Leicke NT33402 Netzteil 90W" from amazon, and until now there where no Problems with the Power (even with 4 Harddrives)

      The MB itself is not perfect, still give me strange errors, but until everything works like i should i will try to ignore it :)

    • With my j3455-itx I've 18W idle with 2 older data HDD's and a msata system SSD.

      I'm also interested in power optimisations from the bios, may be we can share our bios screens or if there a tool available to get this.

      The kernel mce error is the same on my system. This error comes only after a cold boot. After a warm boot,
      f.e. wake up from ethernet after sleeping, there is no error. I think we need a new bios for a solution, or we live with that error.

      No it's not headless. I also installed XFCE, but about 99.5% of the time there won't be anyone using it.
      Sound is active.
      DIMMs are low-power ones (2pcs.).
      The power-supplies came with my Chenbro ES34069: a FSP180-ABA for AC=>19V and an internal PCB for 19V => 12V/5V/3.3V.
      I'll check the UEFI settings later.

      How or where did you get that error message? Never noticed it anywhere.

      Sorry for the bad quality, cant make it better




      Hi Felix, late but not to late i checked your and my bios configurations each other, I had no display and keyboard connected until now.

      differences are:

      - I've only one 8 GB DD3-1600 memory module, that's why system is running in single channel mode.
      - in the advanced section I've enabled VT-d

      There is a new beta BIOS available under ASUS J3455 BETA BIOS
