  1. "...void the warranty..." Good point well taken. An oversight on my part to not have included in the original posting that its OK, I assume disabling the alarm will void the warranty. See, I set the computer to go on Standby after a certain period of time; it's easy on the hardware, it's ecologically the right thing to do. Then I do timed backups at 2am. Which awakens the machine from Standby which causes the CD4 alarm to go off, which awakens me at a time I did not plan. This failure of the design team to think through the above scenario I find a stunning oversight. Yes, it is solved by the CD6 - get out the checkbook again. If I cannot quiet the CD4 it's destined for the trash can anyway. Thanks, Michael
  2. Would someone kindly tell me how to permanently disable the alarm in the Cool Drive 4? What wire or pin to snip. Thanks, Michael
  3. bigbadbns, appreciate your reply. >>>I am awakened at 2am by the unit's alarm which goes off as the computer is awakened from SUSPEND in order to do a scheduled backup. Can the alarm be programmed to not go off under these circumstances?<<< >>> By pressing the middle dial button it should stop beeping. <<< In order that I am not required to awaken and go to the computer to turn off the alarm is it possible to disable the alarm? To be sure I understand correctly; it does not matter if one or more of the power cables is not connected to the CD4 controller board but all of the temp cables must be connected to the board or problems will occur. Do I have it right?
  4. Dear Reader, Questions about how things work and if the unit is defective. 1. I am awakened at 2am by the unit's alarm which goes off as the computer is awakened from SUSPEND in order to do a scheduled backup. Can the alarm be programmed to not go off under these circumstances? 2. I prefer temp readings in F. The unit will not hold its setting and reverts to C each time the machine is restarted from shutdown. How to get it to hold my preference. Does this mean the unit is defective? 3. Channel #1 controls a case fan. The LED display reports 0 RPM. The fan is in fact running. Two different *NEW* fans have been put in place with the same result. The fans are 3-wire, the cable is 3 wire. Does this mean the unit is defective? 4. I have a second HDD with its own 4 pin cooler, power drawn from the power supply harnes. The temp lead from Cooldrive 4's channel #2 is attached to this HDD, the power lead for this channel is left empty at Cd4's circuit board - the cable is not attached. Will this arrangment (temp lead attached, power lead not attached) cause problems? Thanks, Michael
