Re: home server on fit-pc | disappointed
Thank you for the feedback, there are few points worth pointing out.
- HDD temperature of 55°C is slightly higher than average, but not by much. Environmental conditions and system load affect operation temperature. In particular when your usage includes continuous hard disk activity. There are tens of thousands of fit-PC2 units deployed with factory installed hard disks and failure rate is very low, so you may be overly cautious in this case.
- With an SSD installed there is no particular sensitivity to temperature. It can run this way 24/24 (from my experience same applies for factory hard disk, but it is your system and your data so I don't make judgement).
- The fit-PC2 reaches temperature equilibrium much sooner than 6 hours. I am not sure why you picked this number.
- There are several ways to improve thermal behavior of fit-PC2, one of the most popular ones is to attach the external heatsink. See http://www.fit-pc.com/web/fit-pc2/accessories/
