SUMMERTIME : It's time to dust off your NAS !

Postby sksbir » Mon Jul 09, 2018 10:24 pm

Hi

This topic is just to remind you that with summer, it's time to dust off your NAS. This is the second time I've done it on my AS5002T ( each year, on spring ) , and each time I get out an impressive amount of dust.
The device is however stored in a high place, on a bookshelf in the entrance of my flat.

- Stop your NAS
- open cover
- remove dust with a dry air can ( NO vacuum cleaner, there is a risk of electrostatic discharge)
- remount cover and restart.
- open a cold beer and enjoy the restored silence. ( if you are using my scripts ) 8-)

Last time I did it because the script I use to regulate the temperature of the NAS was raising dramatically the fan speed in order to compensate the lack of ventilation caused by dust blocking the air inlets, and it was getting noisy.

As a reminder, I wrote this script because the default temperature regulation offered by Asustor consists in choosing between melting your discs ( low / auto speed settings ) and melting your ears ( medium / high speed settings ) .
