[Neutrino Thunder D3] When does the fan turn off?

The fan in the Neutrino Thunder D3 turns off in the following situations:

  • When the computer is turned off.
  • When the computer goes into sleep mode, the drive(s) and the fan will spin down about 20 seconds later.
  • When using the USB interface, the fan turns off when the drive(s) is ejected by dragging the drive icon into the trash bin.
  • When the power adapter of the Neutrino Thunder D3 is unplugged.

Note: When using the Thunderbolt interface, ejecting the drive(s) by dragging the drive icon into the trash bin does not turn off the fan, it only unmounts the drives and stops the hard disk drives from spinning.
