Hi, I would like to check if anyone has tried to install i7-9700K in TVS-x72xt?

I need the extra cores in i7-9700k to run a few VMs concurrently.

My current setup TVS-672xt with 64GB Ram (2 x 32 GB Samsung DDR4 M471A4G43MB1), Asus GTX 1050Ti 4GB, 10TB Ironwolf.

[Edited 02-Nov-2019]
I have just installed i7-9700K (8 Cores) to TVS-672xt. It works. The OS is able to boot up and detect the CPU.

[Edited 18-Nov-2019]
It has running for many days without any issues. Room Temp at 29~32 DegreeC, CPU idle temp at 35~40 DegreeC, CPU underload (~40%) at 50~60 DegreeC. CPU underload (gaming ~90%) at 60~70 DegreeC. Playing Battlefield 5 at 60~70 FPS at High Setting via Nvidia Gamestream to Shield TV. There are 4 to 6 PC and mobile devices connected via Qsync at all times.

[Edited 25-Dec-2019]
It has been running close to 2 months. No problems at all.

[Edited 28-Apr-2020]
Still working properly. No problems at all. The TVS-672xt rocks! My next upgrade will be 2 x 2TB Firecuda 520 NVMe SSD. The Qnap is placed inside an enclosed cupboard.

[Edited 03-Sep-2020]
I have reset and re-initialized my TVS-672xt. I am using 1 unit x NVMe 2TB Seagate Firecude 520 as my system volume (storage pool 1), and 1 unit x 10TB Seagate Ironwolf as my storage pool 2. The time taken for shutdown/bootup was so much faster. A significant improvement is seen using the VM. Previously installing Windows 10 Pro onto the Seagate Ironwolf takes around 20 minutes. Now, the installation process takes less than 2 minutes on the NVMe Seagate Firecude 520. Wow, impressed. I don't have a proper gaming PC at home. I am still playing games like Call of Duty 4 (~100 FPS), Battlefield 5 (~60 FPS), Command and Conquer 3 (~Max 30 FPS), Red Alert 3 (~Max 30 FPS) on it, streaming via Geforce Experience using Moonlight APP on my Samsung Tab S6 Tablet or sometimes Microsoft Surface Pro 6.. So far so good.. However, the peak power consumption is around 200W with my current setup while playing games, measured via TP-link smart plugs. My next upgrade will be replacing the system fans with 2 units x Noctua NF-A9 PWM (12V, 4 Pins) and replacing the CPU heatsink with Noctua NH-D15 (12V, 4 Pins). Qnap TVS-x72xt Rocks!

[Edited 12-Sep-2020]
I have successfully installed the Noctua NH-D15. Before CPU temperature 60-72 degreeC during gaming. Now the CPU temperature never exceed 60 degreeC during gaming. Idle temperature less than 40 degreeC. Future upgrade on the list includes 600W PSU (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32994352364.html) and RTX 3080 using flexible flat cable riser. Both ideas courtesy of "ramx".

672xt has a i3-8100T (25W TDP)

i7-9700K has 95W TDP ...I doubt fitting that processor in there is a good idea ..power supply and thermal load, are not made for that

Thanks Dolbyman for your quick reply.

I understand i7-8700K (6 cores) works with TVS-x72xt.

I would like to know if anyone ever tried it with i7-9700K (8 cores). Just curious.

Before I settle on i7-8700K.

I tried to play games in VM (Win 10 Pro) via Parsec with Epic setting with GPU passthrough using Asus Cerberus GTX 1050Ti, I get around 60fps on average.

You can't just put any CPU on there and expect it to work on it. The BIOS code will only have specific processors (maybe 3-4 different CPU's from same generation) that could run on it. Some folks have mentioned they can run the i7-8700T. An i7-8700k will definitely be pushing it as it’s 95W TDP.

Qnap only lets you use the CPU,s that are being sold with that particular model, even if its possible to run a newer model CPU. The BIOS code controls that and QNAP will NOT work with you on that :( Only way is to add CPU microcode yourself :mrgreen: That works :mrgreen:

Any actual TVS-x72xt owners here who has done actual CPU upgrade to i7-9700K to contribute comment?

you could try. but an i7-9700T, not i7-9700K - 35w vs 95w! mostly you'll get no exact identification for cpu [bios not recognizing cpuid], also could not run at all, if bios is locked in some way.

@boonjet, how is your i7-9700K doing? Are you having any problems with the upgrade? I'm looking at upgrading my 672N to the i7-8700T or i7-9700T. I see other users state that the i7-8700T works well but if you have the i7-9700K working I should be able to get the i7-9700T to work. Did you do anything special beside install the cpu? Thanks


Update: 09Apr20 - Confirm that the i7-9700 works in 672N. It would take my i3-8100T 3hrs & 30mins to convert a 9GB movie via handbrake (Container Station). The i7 9700 converts the same movie in 20mins. Idle temp 40-45C and under full load 60-70C. I'm sure if I upgrade the fans I can get it cooler. Major upgrade. Pic attached.

@townskeith6 and what about the power consumption? did you somehow measure that or monitor? If you want to make the cpu cooler I can advice you to "delid" it.

@StorXpert at 70% CPU usage my NAS is pulling 144W. I got that info from my UPS. I'm not sure if that is good or bad. I know nothing about deliding also. What's the benefits? Is my wattage too high?

dont bother delidding your cpu, if it doesn't throttle and you are not planning to change your cooling system..leave it

only overclockers with powerful cooling systems delid the cpu's

Dolbyman ok thanks. At that 70% usage my cpu is around 60-65C with the cpu fan on 50%. My PSU is rated for 250 watts so I think I'm ok with wattage and cooling.

bad thing about those TVS-x72 models is you can't really add a different cooler since there's not much space to work with.

I’m trying to decide whether to get a 9700 or a t series. I’ve upgraded my psu but The motherboard doesn’t have a cpu power connector on it like virtually any intel 1151 board and the whole board runs off only two 12v pins. You guys having any problems with power?

Yes I was checking out some photos and didn't see the 8-pin EPS connector for the CPU power, kinda weird that they didn't put one there.
