Additional FAN speeds

Postby j-rune » Fri Apr 10, 2020 8:54 pm

Hi,

I have a AS6508T. A great NAS. Very powerful and all is working fine.

I am using 4 x Seagate Ironwolf Pro disks (16TB) and these run quite hot. When the fan speed is set to Audo the temperatures can reach 50 degrees celcius when the disks are used a little. I guess the fan speed is kept to Low at that time. I know that Seagate lists the operating temps to be 60 degrees, but I personally would like the drives to be a little cooler.
When putting the fan speed to Medium and the NAS is idle, the temps are around 37 degrees. The disadvantage is that the NAS is producing more noise.
So adding a FAN speed between Low and Medium can help. Is this possible?

Or.. can I use a command line to adjust the fan speed?


Thanks,
Jeroen

Awesome! This works great.

I did made some small adjustments to the script, because it is built for systems with only one fan.

Thanks again!
