Hi All,

I have had my Synology DS920+ for about two years already.
I noticed lately that it is sometimes running on a high 60s to low 70s in temperatures.
I have my fans on full powered since I started using it.
Should I be concered about changing my fans or opening it up to do a more thorough cleaning?
I don't know how to reduce the temperature.
Thank you.
 
Where are you seeing the temp from the NAS at?

Have you tried setting your fans to medium and seeing if it cools better/worse? I know on PCs that fans running full out do not always produce the best cooling.

Under Control Panel, Info Center, Thermal Status. If I hover over the status, I get the reading in Celsius and Farenheit.
Currently idle at around 70 C.
Will try the "Cool Mode" and see what happens.

Not really. Doing some thumbnail generation from uploaded photos.
I think the Q @Telos was asking is whether your temps are because your CPU usage is high, not whether you yourself are doing anything unusual with the NAS. There might be proceses running on the NAS that you're unaware of that are causing the issue.

Open Activity Monitor and look at the CPU utilisation, and if its high look at what process(es) are the culprit.

btw Photo analysis inc thumbnail generation usually consumes large amounts of CPU cycles, particularly if its for a large number of newly saved photos.

Fans cluttered with dust?
Did some spring cleaning after that. Still around 70s.

Noted on that. But it was the first time that my NAS actually shutdown by itself due to the temps.
