QNAP 672N CPU Upgrade

Post by lv.onlythebrave » Tue Oct 22, 2019 12:12 pm

Planning to upgrade my NAS system and getting new released 672N, anyone knows is i7 CPU upgrade possible on this one? Also looking at 472xt - if i go with this one, I will lose 2 bays and get thunderbolt
Price point is similar for both.

dont think anyone here has this nas yet

but processor updates should work within same tdp specs as the original cpu

thunderbolt is pretty limited on 4 spinning disks (speedwise)

I hope the processor is not soldered. Pretty new to qnap, migrating from syno. Also can you suggest which i7 processor would have same tdp specs? thnks

If I had that model, I would probably get the
i7-8700T

i7-8700 has a higher TDP, will definitely run warmer.

thanks, ill try to get the 672N and go for this upgrade !. Anything I can do to keep the temp under control, hopefully it should not get too hot.

going for low TDP version and not taxing it too much .. you never specified why the default CPU is too weak for you

I recently acquired the 672N and did 32G memory with the i7-8700T. Works great! Easy upgrade also. Just have your thermal paste ready to go...and it's three screws for the case cover, then four screws for the CPU heat sink. Drops right in...no issues.

Hi Jeff.R

I just purchased the TVS-472XT... Can you let me know the Crucial memory model you used to upgrade your 672?

Thanks!
