Very quiet


Bought 4 drives for use in a Windows Storage Server 2008 box. LOTS of space, fans and air flow in the huge case. Within 36 hours 1 drive had a SMART failure saying the drive overheated. I almost had to wear heat resistant gloves to remove the drive from the server. The SMART monitor showed the drive was running at 61 degrees celcius which is 142 degrees F!!! That is very hot for a drive that describes itself as "cool drive operation".

RMA already in the works with WD. Hope the replacement runs cool.

The other 3 drives are showing as being 51C which is 124F. I still think that is HOT.

The WD site says the operating range of this drive is up to 55C. It will probably not be long before the other 3 drives overheat and fail.
