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;
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.
