So I was able to successfully install the Corsair H5 SF into my TVS-882. I don't have pictures but it is pretty straight forward.

I had the Noctua NH-L12S installed prior and I had to leave a gap at the bottom of the NAS cover because of the size. It still is the same with the AIO installed. Not a big deal, mostly just aesthetics which I can even see.

So, I am running a Windows 10 VM that I use like a regular computer and 7 cores as well as a Windows Education VM (My Gpu is attached to this NAS) that I use to process License plates and gave it 3 cores to use since the GPU is doing the heavy lifting processing the license plates. With the Noctua cooler on, I would see temps around 52 celsius when the load was there and higher ambient temps where the NAS is. With AIO installed, I haven't seen higher than 47 celsius.

Is this worth the upgrade? Maybe. The AIO was only $49, so it was not too expensive. In fact, I think the Noctua cooler coast more.

Actually, before hitting send on this post, I decided to run a stress test on the cpu for 15 minutes and it got up to 51 celsius. My system never really gets to that point so if my temps hover around 46, I will be happy to have the extra 4 degrees or so.

Finally completed my TVS-882 upgrade from the stock i3-7100 to an i7-7700K.

I had originally planned to go with water cooling with an H5 SF, but was concerned with A) noise level and B) longevity of running 24/7 for (hopefully) years to come, so I decided to stick with air.

First I installed the NH-L9x65 on the stock i3 and did some airflow testing using a cardboard box taped in place of the original cover. As others have found, opening the side of the case over the CPU helped drop temps considerably. To my dismay, initial results were very disappointing - that is until I realized I had the fan in backwards! Easy fix.

After a lot of careful measuring, I went for it and cut an opening with a drill press using a circular saw bit. I will say that was a bit nerve-racking, but I am super-pleased with results. Filed down the burrs and slapped a metal fan cover on it. Cooling complete. The clearance between the case cover/grill mounting nuts and the fan is close to none, but it fits.

I then teetered back and forth between the 7700 and the 7700K version for a while (researching it to death) and eventually decided to try the K version with a delid. Not wanting to risk messing that up I had the CPU shipped directly to Silicon Lottery. Part of me really wanted to get the CPU first, install it, check temperatures and then send it out for the delid if I felt it necessary, but I decided that was too much work and extra shipping cost. So unfortunately I don't have temp results for a stock i7.

Having previously swapped the stock power supply for a Corsair SF600, this NAS is dead silent! It sits in my A/V rack in my living room, the noise is undetectable unless I get my head right down next to it, no more than just a slight whooshing of air. I also disabled the front LED so you can't even tell it is powered on.

Idle temp is better than the original i3 with the stock cooling, and the highest temp under full load is only up 5C over the stock CPU max temp.

Time to throw in my own 2 cents.

Upgraded to a 7700k+H4SF AIO. I delided the CPU and applied liquid metal, along with a rockit cool copper IHS . The rockit IHS has an extra 20% surface area. I also swapped out the PSU for a Corsair SF600, and replaced the fans with Noctua A8 PWM fans. Current CPU temps are about 30-35 degrees idle (depending on ambient), and 50 degrees under full load.

Regarding the installation of the H5SF AIO cooler, even if you level the screw for the case feet at the bottom, the radiator will NOT sit flush against the back panel. I dremeled the screw and case down but there's still a good 2-3mm of clearance required.

Extremely happy with how quiet everything runs now. Good riddance to the stock CPU blower.

Still a great device with a good processor, not sure about secondhand pricing but probably cost me $5K in total including HDDs.. I'd check ebay / Craigslist etc to try and compare to secondary market if they are ever on sale. Gut feeling is price is reasonable, try $1k? Would be a deal in my opinion

If it doesn’t come with the drive sleds, then probably try to bargain a bit more. They’re nice boxes.

how much would you counteroffer?< I am asking as i am new to the qnap world and I don't have a sense of a good price range. Market place such as amazon/simplenas and all other place are selling this brand new nas at full price so it's hard for me to gauge on what I should offer.
I am also skeptical as I am wondering if a newer Ryzen nas will come out, if it does then I might as well invest my money there instead of a 2016 model.

Does it not include the drive bays? Understand that disk drives are not included. The same box is still sold now in 2019 just with the addition of the later generation of i7, only benefit I can see is the x265 hardware decoding this 7X00 processor supports.

New Ryzen will cost you more like $3K I expect so difficult to compare.

No, it didn't include the drive bays. I was trying to negotiate the difference of me buying the bays but in the mid's of the negotiation, nas was already sold so I am on a hunt again. LIttle bid bumped out since I thought that I had the offer good for 48 hours. I wouldn't be surprised someone here bought it.
