Some step by step guide
Interesting. Can existing hard disks from Synology model moved to this home build PC and still be accessible. Currently moving of disks from one model to another Synology model can be done easily with all data intact.

I just purchased a DS218j. Any recommendations on hard disks?

See that WD Red not recommended, may I know why?

Thanks.

Tend to fail with Synology NASes, HGSTs, Toshibas and Seagate Iron Wolves seem to have worked well. I personally am using HGSTs but given their purchase by WDs, not sure whether they are still reliable.

Just did a few days test run on the diy xpenology nas box from taobao.

The box is using DSM for DS3617sx for business which means it had remove synology SHR raid in favour for raid 5 and raid 6. This is a small problem, which can easily be added back via telnet to the box and add back the SHR option.

Surprisingly it come with a 16gb sata SSD pre-installed with Xenology and DSM 6.1.7. With 4gb of ram and 150w flex power supply with intel J1900 cpu.

Downside is the box back plane is a bit filmsy to hold the motherboard backplate in place.

Overall it is a relatively cheap 4 bays nas box at $80 inclusive of shipping.

Really, I go check cmos info this coming Friday as I left it in office to do burn in test. I did notice the intel xeon cpu is fake in the synology info center. The review from taobao site is showing original intel J1900 cpu. So far boot up test is really fast as compare to my old 4 bays synology, probably due to SSD. I did swap the sata cable connected to the motherboard to the correct order for the hdd bays.
