came to this thread cos my 2nd wd red died liao (only used the NAS for 2.5 years). think need to jump ship to another brand sia.

Get the Seagate Ironwolf 5400rpm, runs cooler and less noise. I switched to them and no regrets.

I find the Toshibas to run very hot at 7200rpm.

OK, will take a look. Ironwolfs seem to be quite a bit pricier than the Toshibas, need to run it past finance minister first 🤣

Toshiba HDD
Seagate Ironwolf
NAS?

This NAS has 3 Seagate Ironwolves and 1 WD Red. It used to be 3 WD Red and 1 Toshiba, the Toshiba was running really hot at 42-43 degrees.

I won't consider 42-43°C as hot.
To me:
< 40°C: Cool
40-49°C: Warm
> 49°C: Hot

Ok. To me 42 degrees in non-aircon environment is pretty hot. I've ever touched the harddisk before and I just didnt like the heat.

Some Synology models have the mobo & processor next to Slot 1.
Therefore HDD 1 will have higher temperature

so your ironwolf how "cold" to justify the higher price tag with a much slower rpm ?

.
From his image/post, I see about 6°C cooler. $21 premium is the price for cooler and slower HDD.
Price from Tradepac:
Seagate Ironwolf 4TB: $156
Toshiba 7200rpm 4TB: $135

Hi Experts

I tried to search the HWZ forums for answers but cant seem to find any.

I have a rather old synogloy 1812. The unit died on me. I suspect the power supply has gave up. I was trying to look for replacement PSU online but either there aren't stocks left or the ones available are extremely expensive.

Are the connectors standard configuration, i.e. I can buy another off-the-shelf PC PSU and hook up to my 1812? I know I wont be able to fit it into the NAS, but was just thinking if this is a viable option if aesthetics is not my concern.

Lol pay more just for the 6 degrees different and sacrifice on the things that matter most. Unless the 6 degrees is really unbearable i dont know how i could do that..

Likely will work since it is using the same 24pin as a conventional PSU

For the other part you probably have to tweak
