few days ago i get another WD black 3TB, FZEX model
just to make sure there not deffect on the drive, so before using it, i use DLG v1.28 several times
when i do either short test and extended test, few seconds in beginning, the drive giving loud fan/grinding noise
the noise is like when we turn GPU fans to 100%
it last few seconds since start and it back to normal working sound
is that normal ?
compared to few years old WD black FAEX 1TB i have, it producing similar sound, but much lower noise
so the new FZEX is like twice or even 3x time louder
other than the test, the drive is working silent enough, at least not much different than old FAEX
Other else is that the drive temp is like 2-4℃ hotter than old FAEX…
while this quite understable, as the 1TB FAEX maybe only 2 platter, 3TB FZEX seems 4platter so more heat it produce
so if the old FAEX is around 38-43℃… FZEX is like 40-44℃ (reach 47℃ on long 6hours extended test)
should i worried about the DLG test noise and the temp ?
or above is normal?
thanks in advance
