Exclamation NAS Alert! Intel Atom C2000 Series CPU degeneration issue...

Be aware Intel has just released an alert that the Atom C2000 series CPU (better known by the codenames Avoton and Rangeley) has a manufacturing flaw similar to the Pioneer AVR UE22 issue. Intel has discovered that the CPU has a degenerative issue which means the CPU will fail. I think the failure is expected around 18-36 months depending on use. Of course, a NAS is usually powered 24x7 so i expect the failure rate to be earlier than later.

The only fix is the replacement of the CPU and circuit board. Whether the manufacturer will replace this is in question as most warranties will have expired by then.

"Seagate, Synology, ASRock, Advantronix, and other NAS vendors have all shipped devices using the flawed chips, and as a result all of these products are vulnerable to early failures. These vendors are still working on their respective support programs, but for covered devices the result is going to be the same: the affected NASes will need to be swapped for models with fixed boards/silicon. So NAS owners will want to pay close attention here, as while these devices aren’t necessarily at risk of immediate failure, they are at risk of failure in the long term."
