new DS 216play and WD RED 6TB noisy as hell!!

Postby MaDMaX** » Wed Sep 13, 2017 5:39 pm

just got my DS216play

and installed a 6TB WD red,

i have installed the o/s and currently running a short smart test, but its sounds like a box of ball bearings with compressed air being shoot into it, i live in a three bedroom house and pretty sure thats going to keep me awake, is this normal ?

i previously had a DS1513 with 4 WD 3TB reds, and hardly any noise at all !
