G Tech Raid - way too noisy

Recommended Posts

If it's an all-aluminum enclosure, there probably isn't much need for a fan running very loud most of the time. Can you monitor the drive temperatures at all? Ideally they would be around 40C.


If you want to replace the fan, Noctua would probably be the quietest option.

Sorbothane feet would probably do the best job of isolating any vibrations.

very nice.... :-)


I'll dismantle the g tech... Let's see what I can do.

would be ideal to replace the fan with a noctua,

or feeding the existing with lower voltage.. 5 or 6 volts instead of 12...?

Might be worth tightening everything up, see if its quieter then!



...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.
