    Mine is sweating here in Melb...prob. 36 ambient in my room.

    It's in a low ventilation room and the HDD's are cooking @ 45-50 degrees with the fans on full....arghhh. I may need to consider replacing the (low speed) noctura's with something with more oomf.
    Code:
    ...
    Drive c7t1d0 temp is 45C
    Drive c7t2d0 temp is 45C
    Drive c7t3d0 temp is 44C
    Drive c7t4d0 temp is 46C
    Drive c7t5d0 temp is 45C
    Drive c7t6d0 temp is 43C
    Drive c8t0d0 temp is 50C
    ...
    The UPS is complaining it's internal temp is 49 degrees!

    To the OP:

    Drop the fan speeds,see if the temps climb much.

    Those temps look like there isn't much airflow over them anyway (poor fan design/air flow due to case design??)

    I wouldn't be worried either, its still within the operating temp of the drives right?

    I'd be more worried about reasonably rapid temperature changes while they're operating.

    tray doors open? dont you mean closed? you close ALL empty trays.

    mine are... ambient + a couple of degrees.
    only one of the 15 disks are spinning and thats currently 37C. the joys of non striped parity, only a single disk spins when you need to read stuff.
    cant check SMART on a disk that isnt spinning.

    yes, you close them when there are no disks so that all air is routed through trays with hdds in them.

    i should mention i dont have a norco rack, i have 3 ss500's with noctua r8's in em.

    It's all fairly well laid out and ventilated...just freaking hot in this room!


    Click to view full size!

    (note this is an old pic : all the drive bays are full now, and some of the the components have changed...but all have fans directly blowing over them...)

    My QNAP TS-410 at the moment, outdoor temperature is 33.7C:

    System Temperature 46°C/114°F
    HDD 1 Temperature 42°C/107°F
    HDD 2 Temperature 43°C/109°F
    HDD 3 Temperature 42°C/107°F
    HDD 4 Temperature 42°C/107°F

    Seems to be coping just fine.

    [​IMG]

    Dam Hitachis are hard to keep cool even with a 120mm fan infront of them LOL. Might have to put the Delta fan back in...

    Cpu temp is sitting at 37c, never really moves :)

    NAS?

    I haven't looked at mine since I stuck it under the house in early 2008!

    Drives are all sitting between 38deg on the bottom and 42 on the top.
    Power on Hours: 21910 :Paranoid:
