Happiness is 2 GB of RAID 1-backed space

A few weeks ago, I added two Samsung Spinpoint F4 HD204UI 2 GB SATA hard drives to my ReadyNAS, which is using them to provide 2 GB of space via RAID 1.

The only problem I have now is that the stock 60mm fan in the ReadyNAS failed and the Vantec SF6025L 60mm fan that I bought didn’t seem to move enough air (12 CFM) to keep the drives cool, because the ReadyNAS sent me a zillion emails about high temps. I’m going to try to get a beefier (and less quiet) fan (Vantec TF6025, rated at 24 CFM) to keep things cool.
