Microserver Gen8 Noise issue in RAID mode


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

Been reading the forums for quite a while now, but so far cant seem to find a description of the issue I am seeing in my MS Gen8.

I basically have the fan issue (Fan running at ~50-70%) when I use the B120i in RAID0 mode.

My config is: G2020T with 16G RAM

250 GB SSD 2.5" in Bay1
3 TB WD Green in Bay2

1 TB WD Black in Bay3

640 GB WD Blue in Bay4


Now every disk is its own RAID0 array on the controller.

When I run this in AHCI the fan issue does not occur... but then I have issues in ESXI with timeouts for the disks in AHCI so forced to use B120i...

I will need to do some searching. Someone had a similar issues and found that certain drives were causing the problem. If it is a fully functioning system it may be hard to try, but I would try pulling the 640gb drive. What brand and model is the SSD?

Removing the WD640 did the trick... its and old laptop HDD and hoped to use it for some storage:))) Guess not the best idea... The SSD is Samsung 840 EVO.

After removing the WD640, I have 9-18% fan speed! Will keep monitoring and update if issue comes back

Thanks schoondoggy! :)
