Saturday, I tried the psu Seasonic of Paolo in place of my Corsair. During the first hour the Seasonic sounded really bad. The next few hours he started to play at the same level of my Corsair. Obviously, I was expecting more from this power supply! :) Netx day, late night the Seasonic (and all the...

Regarding burn in, the performance of my NAS still vary a lot after the latest upgrade (PSU 3 weeks ago) And based on how many weeks (months) burning in can take, I advice those not perfectly happy with your LS NAS to take a deep breath. Also I advice retesting your cables/direction after a month o...

Did some more testing yesterday. Great that you continue to work on your LS NAS! LS NAS is running continously for one week now (as is the KDS, KK is on mute) and I think it is getting better due to burn in. Tested direct mains connection (on open case) - again a small step in the right direction. ...

Since the topic of cases has come up I thought I'd share a bit of research I've done into them. Thanks for the resaerch on cases, it seems I missed a lot with my suggestions. I agree with you Thomas, the Streacoms are out, for the PSU issue. That brings me to another case which, while not being qui...

The question is, how long the Pro survives.
That is indeed bad news. Lets hope they have a replacement on the way that is even better. (E55M1...?)

But as they say: Now is the time to go Pro!

The Linnofil Super NAS specification is updated! From the first post on page one: Edit 1, 2013-Feb-5: 1. Updated with new case, Cooler Master Elite 120 as some builders had problems with the originally suggested Fractal Design Node 304. 2. Added more info on the PSU, Platinum. 3. Reversed the order...

The Asus E45 Fusion is by far the best I have tested. Do you mean: The best, or do you mean: the best alternative to the Asus M45 pro or deluxe? Is it Asus or MSI? Sorry for the confusion on the Fusion! What I tried to say was that the best boards/platforms of the ones that I have tested has been t...

I will try to reconfigure the network so that there is no internet access - I think I can do this by adding the wireless antenna to the LSNAS, then removing the cable between the GS105 switch and the main router. That will mean I can remove MSE. This will be an interesting test, since it's better w...

To avoid misunderstandings, I suggest we all post specs on our LS NAS I will try and do this for my LS NAS to. In total 1250€ with app. 600GB storage capacity. Best invested 1.2k in many years!!!

Time to try the LSNAS against my previous setup of laptop/MinimServer/wireless. The LSNAS is not quite the recommended spec: 1) SATA cables are those supplied with the motherboard, not the Deltacos. This is about to be fixed! 2) I got fed up with AVG free edition as it kept on issuing warnings, des...

I've just started to use my LSNAS. Great news, now the optimizing and burn in can start working in the right direction! it appears that the PSU will need to burn in. Yes, I actually think it may take more time than usual, because the current draw from the PSU is so small with the E45 Fusion. Let it...

Sorry if I missed it Linnofil, but were other motherboards tried too, or just the Asus E45M1 Deluxe and the Pro versions? Wondering what might make them sound better than others... There's an ASRock Mini ITX mobo with the 350 APU vs 450 in the Asus, but with a Hudson M1 North Bridge... Never mind: ...

Following this with curiosity & interest... Great! I hope we can get you to build one as well! Just look at Nicolav, you can get a bit on the way by starting with some of the main components. It's fun! Isn't the same problem, as with the Mini ITX mobo, going to happen soon with the Intel 320 SSDs? ...

I know that getting a fully working LS NAS can be a bit of a revolution, but I still believe that ripping can have a very large impact as well. But with that knowledge, combining both is a no brainer.

I am not looking at the Linnofil Super NAS only as a personal device. Since I work at a Linn store I am also thinking of the possibility of offering this device to customers who don't wish to undertake building one themselves. With a nice fat bonus to the inventor for each one sold, surely? :-) I s...

The type of HDD seems to have less effect on recording than on playing. The Intel 320 and my 1.5 TB 2.5'' USB3 are very very close, the 500 GB 2.5'' Seagate sounds more different. ... It is nice to see that the Intel 320 seems not inferiour in this respect as well, but perhaps a tiny bit better. No...

I hate to think what might come out of putting a Intel 320 instead of ES.2. Don't hate, love it instead! ;-) The better your NAS is, the bigger the difference between a ES.2 and a 320 SSD. So you can safely expect a considerable improvement. Sorry, hate is the wrong term (google translate is not al...

I, like others here, I started to assemble my own LS NAS. Unfortunately, due to lack of funds, I only bought the motherboard Asus E45M1-I Deluxe. All other components (ram, psu, case) I had already, so I said: let's try to build the LS NASwith the new card and the one I already have! Also thought: ...
