I’m upgrading my NAS (Synology 4-bay) from 6TB Reds to 8TB Reds. I’ve already RMA’ed one 8TB Red Drive back to WD and the one they sent me is running hot too. By running hot, I mean so hot that the Synology shuts down for protection. Since I’m swapping one 6 tb for an 8 tb, it has to rebuild the array every time I put in one of those new 8tb’s.
Hot in this case means 45-46C while all other drives in the box run 38-40C all the time. I do notice the firmware of the lone 8TB red that runs 38-40 is newer that the hot ones.
Are these Red 8TB supposed to run this hot and what can be done ?
