Have a look at that board here: <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="http://forum.thecus.com/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=6809&start=20#p30234">viewtopic.php?f=65&t=6809&start=20#p30234</a><!-- l -->

Call me soft but I am always hesitant to run Beta firmware. Is it really OK?

I am hesitant to run even Official Firmwares....-))

@Yaron, If you use LocalDisplay it sadly enough still has the limitation in the memory Sad Still no updated display driver available by Intel Cry

@Brookes, I am running this fw 2.04.01.1 since the first day it was available and the way I am using my NAS noticed no problems (only solutions for the issues I had with the official 2.04.01 firmware).

Unsure of where to post this but thought i would put it here. :?: Big Grin My NAS is the N5550.
Was looking at the RAM Compatibility list http://www.thecus.com/download/compatibi...y_list.pdf and noted that the brands tested all had hynix 8x256 chip configurations, and also noted that thecus is rubish at testing ram for there systems, seriously 4 sticks and 2 from one manufacturer. Sad just a little disappointing.
The Transcend modules are verified at 1.35v http://www.transcend-info.com/files/edm/...book-1.pdf, but it seams that 1.5v is ok, according to the corsair & kingston modules that others have listed.
In any case i decided to pick up some Crucial Ram Modules over at crucial .com http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.a...5664BF1339. 4GB kit total 2x 2GB DDR3 204 pin 1333mhz (PC-10600) cl9 v1.35.
Would have been nice to find a match for the factory installed transcend module but after looking at the market price, i went with a new kit.
I'll post the results once i get them.
I have yet to see anyone post comments on g.skill, mushkin, pny, team, crucial or anything other than corsair / kingston modules, Cry
So please as the thread title implies, please community post your results.

2x4 GB 1333 MHZ Corsair CMSO4GX3M1A1333C9

I had to remove the MEM=4G parameter
Via telnet/ssh (or console) :

# mount /dev/sdaaa1 /boot
# vi /boot/boot/grub/menu.lst
Hi, I tried the same, but I did it that way:
1. replacing the RAM modules
2. mount /dev/sdaaa1 /boot
3. copying the menu.lst to my windows machine via sftp (because I hate vi - why is there no nano?!)
4. edited the file with Notepad++
5. copying it back via sftp
6. umount /boot
7. deactivated ssh and rebooted via web-interface

but now the N7510 isn't booting anymore. After powering it on it only shows "self testing..." on the LCD screen.
Maybe, and I'm really not sure about that, the error was caused by overwriting the existing menu.lst via sftp with the root account. I didn't look at the owner or anything.
(Firmware is v2.04.05)
Thats how the menu.lst is looking right now:
Code:
default=0
timeout=0
hiddenmenu
title Normal
    root(hd0,0)
        kernel (hd0,0)/boot/bzImage ro root=/dev/ram0 max_loop=210 console=ttyS1,115200n8
        initrd (hd0,0)/boot/ramdisk
title Backup
    root(hd1,0)
    kernel (hd1,0)/boot/bzImage ro root=/dev/ram0 max_loop=210 console=ttyS1,115200n8 domb
    initrd (hd1,0)/boot/ramdisk

Could somebody please help me resolve this problem?
Thanks in advance

P.S.: Sorry for my bad English, it isn't my mother language.

Hello:

I am new to thecus. I just purchased my first one from Microcenter. It's the 7510 7-bay and I got an excellent deal on it. Paid $350 for it. They still have some if someone else needs one and they ship to US and possibly Canada.

I did a firmware update to 2.05.04 and I wanted to know if anyone has upgraded the memory with is firmware wd red 3tb drives in it and I want 8gb of memory in it.

Thanks

Were you able to use 1x8GB or not ?

Hi Yaron,
with one single 8GB chip it is not working.
BUT, I will test it again using a second one, perhaps both channels have to be fit with a ram.
Rgds, Frank
I don't think so, but it worth trying.
Please first try 1x8GB in the other slot (both a 1333mhz & 1066mhz if you have it).
Yaron.

The official word is that the hardware can't address more than 8GB. And my guess is that, as is the case with most/all motherboards, using both slots (2 x 4GB) rather than just one allows RAM interleaving and thus better performance.

8 Gb sees perfect, need to patch that or just remove 4Gb.

Performance jump in 2 - 3 times. I love it
