Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

Hmm, I notice Intel has confused matters by replacing the E6600 with another E6600 that runs at 3.06 GHz! It uses a smaller die size of 45 nm.

http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=42807,27250,

Since it shares the same name, would you expect it to be as compatible as the "old" 2.40 GHz E6600?

my iperf is probably faster because i used the option -P4 which spawns 4 parallel streams instead of just one.

i havent got a clue why the hdparm speeds differ so much from yours though.

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

So I decided to upgrade my ReadyNAS Pro's CPU tonight and when I went to loosen the CPU heatsink, one of the screws snapped off in the mount. The mounts look permanent. Thoughts on how I can rectify this problem? I checked out those screw grabbers at Lowes, but they're huge and meant for large screws. The screw looks to have loc-tite or something similar around it! I thought that was strange. Anyway...

So, am I "screwed?"

Can you take a picture of it?

Best I can do to help you, is get you a replacement heatsink, if that is all thats broken. I replaced a CPU the other day in a Pro, so I have a spare heatsink by lucky chance.

Chirpa, unfortunately it goes beyond the heatsink :-(

Here's the area beneath where the CPU is where the heatsink would mount over if the motherboard was in place


Here's the mounting standoff that has the broken screw (the same that sticks up in the picture you posted) inside. I tried slotting what was left of the screw, but it was so weak it twisted away to nothingness when I tried to turn it with a screwdriver.



This is baaaaad. The mount is pretty well useless with a screw stuck in it. Can't put the cooler back on the board at this point. Would you guys be willing to sell me a case with nothing in it? Just the bare metal - I don't know what else is going to work at this point because there is no way to replace the standoff / mount because it looks like it is part of the disk assembly below.

Not to sound like a scary internet stalker, but I LOVE YOU RIGHT NOW!!!! Hahaha.

I'll gladly pay for it along with shipping (assuming you're not going to charge me the price of a whole brand new readynas pro hehe.) Also, do you think it might also be possible to get a CPU cooler as well or just the screw assembly for the one leg that is broken? I was looking at the broken one and I wasn't sure if it was possible to repair it or if I would need a new one. Are there any parts that are compatible that I could pick up elsewhere? Either way is fine with me.

I owe you big! Thank you again! :-D

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

Chirpa, I got the parts swapped but the box won't boot. I switched back to the old CPU thinking maybe the new one didn't work - but still got the same result. Fans go wild, but nothing happens.

I got this hairbrained idea to try hooking a monitor to the onboard VGA header. Luckily it worked! :-) Hehe...




I can see the board posts just fine. I poked around in the bios and everything looks ok, but I get the boot error. Could the onboard flash be corrupt? Where does that hook to the USB bus? I'm pretty sure swapping the cpu should not have caused this. I haven't tried booting up with the new CPU with the monitor attached yet. I just want to get the box booting first.

Any hints, oh master of ReadyNAS's?

Edit: I found the flash chip. It's on the IOExpander board. I tried booting from USB and that seems to work. I got it to boot a thumbdrive that I use to install windows. I obviously didn't install anything, but it did indeed work.

Hook up a USB keyboard, press DEL on bootup to get into the BIOS. Check under Boot for the boot order.

Yes, the internal Flash is behind the LED screen.

Behind the LED screen? I removed the IOExpander and the flash was no longer listed during POST so I assumed it was on that board - I'll have to hunt for it when I get home from work. Anyway, I had already checked the BIOS and the flash disk is listed as the primary boot device, but fails to boot.

On a side note: I managed to boot the machine using a USB disk that I made (with windows 98 system files lol!) and ran some basic diagnostics. CPU and Memory both check out fine. Memtest ran three passes before I stopped it, all were clean. The fact that the machine can boot from USB just makes me wonder about that onboard flash. Is there a way to recover it if it has indeed gone on the blink? What else should I be looking at?

(also since this isn't really CPU Spec related, should I start a new thread? I feel like I'm taking this one off-topic now)
