With this hot weather we've been having, my Microserver has been shutting down again due to HDD temps exceeding 45 degrees.

So with the extra room in the top (I only have 1 3.5" drive in the top where the CD drive goes) I installed a 120mm fan in the top of the case to help suck the hot air out the top.

I just don't know if people like me. I know when they don't like me 'cause they'll say things like, 'Yeah, that's him, officer.'

The biggest drop is the top drive is running at 32 degrees where it was running at 36. The 4 in the bays are running 1-2 degrees cooler so I'm happy with the results.

The only thing now is the noise. I just have to see if it doesn't annoy me lol

A while back I purchased a Synology DiskStation DS413J 4-Bay NAS - and it seems to be doing the job just fine. :-)

Has anyone else got one of these? Have you got any custom services running on it?

Did you consider the Qnap? Just curious, synology seems to be far more popular.

Still running my cheap arse server, though I've got Plex running now (rather than Serviio) hooked up to the AppleTV.

Yes I considered Qnap as well, however the one i bought came up on ebay with a really cheap price - too good to refuse.
