Another noise thread!
How hot do these things get? The underside of mine is 'uncomfortably' warm which I guess is causing the fans to go crazy to cool it down. It's not the disks vibrating, I've taken them out and it gets just as loud Sad

Kinda wish Drobo had a shop I could walk into and compare.

RE: Another noise thread!
hi nox, the sound of the fan is one thing (and i certainly noticed my gen1 drobo making a lot more noise in the recent hot weather), but it might also be other vibrations causing problems.

have a look on the forums search for words like rubber feet, and cork, as it might help a bit?

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
