Overview

Please refer to here for previous X830 V1.1;(Out of stock)

We are very happy to released the newest X830 V2.0 3.5" SATA HDD expansion board before the 2019 Chinese New Year holiday. The new V2.0 version has some important updation & improvements based on customer feedback, the most important of them are as following: Added safe shutdown function, supports USB booting from your HDD, the power supply is used with commonly DC 12V power supply; add on-board screw holes for large-capacity hard disk and so on.

For the X830 matching metal case, we also made some optimization:

  • 1/ Used a more powerful and bigger fan, at the same time, it is mute when working and looks nice;
  • 2/ For the installation of the 4PIN adapter board, we have to increase the height of the box by about 10mm;

Attention:

The X830 V2.0 board uses the more commonly used DC 12V 2A power adapter, other voltage input is not recommended and it will cause some unexpected damage to the HDD,X830 board, and raspberry pi.BE CAREFUL!

Note:This X830 V2.0 board also can be used with ROCK64 board, but do not support safe shutdown function on ROCK64 board.

For some other features, you can still refer to the X830 V1.1 version of WIKI.

Hello sir, What do you mean by old case? The X830 case has been updated to be suitable for both new X830 V2.0 version and X830 V1.1 version. Do you have any new suggestions with update? Best regards,

Would a 12v 5a power supply be ok?

Hello X830 Team,

I noticed that the fan speed varies over time. Considering it's only a 2 wire connection I assume the board is controlling the voltage. Is there a way to access the programming for some/any fan control? Ideally I'd like to run the fan as slowly/quietly as possible. If not I guess I can figure out a way for the pi to control the fan. Thanks for your time.

Hello sir, Thanks for your message. Sorry, it is not possible to o access the programming to control the fan speed. If you figure out a way for the pi to control the fan,please tell us, we are willing to know. Best regards,
