    Hello, Alex.

    I came upon your blog when I was searching around for X10SLL-F related pages. Luckily my motherboard came with the more recent BIOS and I didn’t have to jump around and do what you had to do to get your CPU working with the board.

    I wanted to ask if you had a blog entry of the NAS build. I am always looking for new ideas and trying to see what others have managed to get to work, etc.

    If you have any more material related to your NAS build can you post it? Maybe some pictures of the final setup?

    Thank you!

    • utp216,

      Glad to hear that your X10SLL-F came with a recent BIOS 😛

      I’ve been meaning to share some pictures of my work to give a better impression of what I’m working with. I did collect some notes on the process behind developing the specifications for my NAS build, which I can publish if it might be of interest…

      Let me know if this would help 🙂
