Can you change the order of action? I think it would be benefitial to be able to compare a new and the present SSD. ... I believe it is premature to label Nicolav's SSD as faulty. I think that is a good idea. Testing is as we know the best way to gain knowledge. Does Paolo have a Intel 320 yet? It ...

Nicolav, why don't you just sell your Intel 320 and get a new one? In fact, is what I'll do. Smart move. I think that is the only way forward in your present situation. I'm sorry to have bored you with my complaints. Not at all. It's very interesting to know that this can happen. Nobody knew about ...

Re: Puzzled

All is well. Last weekend's poor performance has gone. And the music has come back, largely due to taking off the Node 304 case and removing the internal extension power cord. Good news! :-D It's always a good feeling to discover that the music is back at the right level. disconnecting the fans mak...

I wondered whether other seemingly similar AMD based boards using a E350 or C60 have ever been tested. (The Asus C60M1-I is still available (passive cooling, 6 Sata connections), also the seems eventually worth a try.) I haven't tested any of them, so they could actually be even better! I think it ...

There is a chance that your 320 and my have different firmware. If so, perhaps it could explain the different performance. Mine have the latest 4PC10362 fw, what's yours I now have 5 Intel 320 SSD's. I have at least two different FW: 120 GB with 4PC10362 120 GB with 4PC10302 160 GB with 4PC10362 60...

My own E45 deluxe mobo is unfortunately defective (returned today). Bad Luck! Since they are hard to come by now it's really unfortunate. I'm not sure whether to hunt for the last ones of this old style, or to better wait a couple of days for the new successor E2KM1-I Deluxe (with a slightly faster...

As I have my only Internet access/router rather far away from the stereo (in another room), cable connection between the router and the NAS would be quit ugly. So I would like to avoid it if at all possible. Is it possible to use the wireless (bridge?) functionality of the ASUS E45M1-I Deluxe mothe...

Re: Puzzled

Last weekend I commented on the improvements which several details had made to my LSNAS - and at the beginning the LSNAS had outperformed my laptop. I then reconnected the fan, and the power cord via the internal extension, and left it to run on mute for five days. Is this a temporary setup for "un...

I have just ordered the parts so will take some time to get it up and running. Great, please let us know how it goes. Did you manage to get a Mini-ITX MB or did you go for the mATX MB? Case? I will think about Linux. An issue is that I have very limited experience with it, but figured a NAS would p...

Unfortunately I have to confirm that my Intel 320 160GB is not good as my ES.2 and frankly I do not understand why. If the Intel 320 isn't a lot better than the ES.2, then there is something wrong with the 320! Are you sure it is a 320? Check if the BIOS is reporting that it's a 320. If it's a Inte...

Re: RAM tests

Did you use the Kingston spec of 1.65 V, or did you use 1.5 V? I let the MB adjust the settings by it self, the A-Data and the Corsairs run at 1.5 V, but the Kingston Hyper-X runs at 1.65 V. I did a retest of the RAM's today and the Corsairs are still a little bit better than the Kingston. The soun...

Re: RAM tests

Good test, I wonder how Kingston 4GB DDR3 PC10600 1333MHz (KTH9600B/4G) (HP), that Nicolav and I rate highly, relates with your RAM's. I hope we can test this, when I have used them a few days to burn them in a bit. That would be interesting. I will retest against the Corsair in a few days to. Any ...

I am new to DS and will build a Linnofil NAS. Great, welcome to the LS NAS community! The more we are the better it will get. Is it possible to use Linux Twonky? Would save a Windows license, and as a cleaner windows installation improved sound, perhaps Linux could too? I really don't know. This ha...

RAM tests

I have now bought some RAM for testing. My local store didn't have the same RAM as Nicolav uses, but I decided to try some other Kingston RAM, Kingston ValueRAM 4GB DDR3 1333MHz Non-ECC CL9 DIMM (KVR1333D3N9/4G) they only had one in stock, so I bought a single 4 GB.  I also bought 8GB (2x4GB) of, Ki...

Now fitted a Deltaco SATA cable to the music drive. I think there is an improvement, but it's marginal. Tried swapping back and forth, but no conclusive result so I will leave the Deltaco in place to burn in. The Deltaco cables are no miracle cables, but they are the best that I have tested. Consid...

If it is the difference between writing and reading from the SSD via the Sata cable, it must affect all kinds of access to the SSD - ripping, download, etc. Yes, you are probably right, but I don't know if it's practical to reverse the SATA cables each time you have to rip something. It may be more...

Re: Tweaking

Started out tonight to uninstall MSE and replace with AVG. Ended up with a complete software re-install and a two-hour delay, so difficult to say how much better it is with AVG in place of MSE, but overall a small improvement. A bit inconclusive, but that's how it is some times. AVG should be bette...

Another question about the SATA cables: After having determined their optimum direction by playback, is it advised to change their direction for ripping/download? I think they are directional, so they may benefit from reversing when recording. I think you are the only one who can test this, since n...

Last night I put the A-Data 2x4 GB 1600MHZ Game Series in place of my Kingston 2x KtH9600B/4G 1333 mhz. To my surprise, my Kingston wins hands down! This is great news. You should't be so surprised, RAM's have not been tested before. Good work! RAM is not that expensive, so I think everybody should...

for David Neel it's probably just some light tweaking and burn in.
