How to reduce noise on Synology NAS – compatible FAN list

How to reduce noise on Synology NAS?

Quick update:
Amazon delivered the Noctua fans very quickly, and I already installed them!
WOW. Just WOW.
Using my phone noise level app, noise level went from 37dB (in idle) to 28dB, where the noise level with the NAS off in the room was at 25-26dB.
Subjectively, the NAS is almost silent!!!
Now, I feel a significantly lower air flow (placing my hand 2-3cm from the exhaust fans), so I was worried about thermals… After several hours of copying data from my old NAS to the new RS1221+, the readings seem pretty stable at CPU temp of 49C and the HDDs at 30C.
5 minutes after copy finished – CPU dropped to 44C and HDDs to 28C.
Bottom line:
I am VERY happy now! Honestly, I think the RS1221+ is not louder than my DS418play… amazing!
Thanks again for all the help, and happy new year!
Love your website and love your YouTube videos 🙂
