Replacing HDD and cooler question

Postby matija » Mar 6th, '14, 09:40

Hi, I bought these of eBay, it's Gen3 500GB (2x250gb Hitachi HDD).

Stock HDD's are really slow for my needs, therefore I decided to replace them with faster and bigger. Can you please tell me what is the max. size for individual disk I can place inside (eg. 2x 750GB) and do I need to change anything after replacement?

Another question, I noticed that my case gets warm after few minutes of use. When does cooler (ventilator) starts spinning? Shouldn't it be always on?

Thank you.

Hi matija,

Thanks for posting. The unit should be able to handle up to 1TB drives, 7200RPM should not be a problem, however SATA 3 drives may cause issue and would stick to SATA 2 drives. You will most likely need to run the configurator software to set up the raid on the new drives. The configurator can be found here ... nfigurator

The g-raid mini do tend to be a little warm in normal operation, the fan comes on after the drives reach a certain temperature. I do not have the specific temperature that triggers the fan.
