      Fan fail DRX890?

      Hi folks,

      I am just in the process of swapping my 1 TB disk from my pace TDS850 to a DRX890 box (it's disk had failed but was working okay diskless mode).

      All has gone well so far and the disk appears to be working okay now to swap into the DRX890 box. However, I have had the box on test with the tin lid and plastic case still off but have not seen any life from the fan. Even on power up from the mains fan only twitches. Is this normal?, is there a point at which the fan should fire up? Or is it governed by temperature control?

      Many thanks for any help you can give.

      I would imaging it only fires up when the box reaches a certain temperature to reduce noise and power consumption.

      Box all back together and back in position now, so fingers crossed that it doesn't get too hot. Many thanks.
