Just wondering if standing my replay on end(side), instead of flat on it's feet would hurt it? I know as for the HD, that will run on it's side, but wondering if there are any parts inside that would get mad at me?
I have my 5080 mounted face down on a wall in a wiring closet. It has been running that way for 4 months now with no problems. My only suggestion would be to not mount it so the air flow in the rear of the unit points down. Heat tends to rise and that configuration might cause reduced air flow.
Sry, I have a 5060 and it does have a fan. Don't mind the HD on it's side, since most HD's will run in just about any state. I was more concerned about any relative long term affects I might cause by doing this. Was thinking of turning it on it's side, so that the fan hole would be towards the ceiling, thinking that would take care of the heat rising problem.
