Does any one have any ideas of how to reduce drive temp. I have 4 drives in Raid 5 and for much of the time the system is ideal but still the temps are >= to 50 degrees. I don’t want to have the fan running 100% all the time nor do i want to have the drives running >50 degrees for long periods of time.
As part of the install and config script it would be nice to have pin down / idle setting, this would be a big power save and control temp as well as prolonging the life of the disks.
However i guess first it need to detect the 4 HDD correctly and then a script could be installed using something like hdpram with the config file providing a time out for each of the 4 drives
