Dbrand & Heatsink Combo: System Impact?

I own a PS5 and the Dbrand 2.0 plates, which have the vents located near the fans, but I am very interested in purchasing a PS5-designed heatsink to go alongside them, as well as a SSD. I know NASCompares has uploaded videos regarding these, but I have a specific need that I’d like to have addressed. What PS5-designed heatsink would be the most beneficial when regarding the temperature of the PS5 console as a whole both long-term and short-term as the main priority and the SSD as the secondary concern, while keeping in mind factors such as the Dbrand 2.0 plates ventilation and the possibility of additional heat being drawn into the console over the top of/from the heatsink? At the moment I am considering 3 potential options: ElecGear, Sabrent, and the PNY. I know the PNY is somewhat of a different story, but I am still curious as to which one of these would have the best results in regard to my preferences? Also, I am willing to spend as much as needed in order to accomplish even a small amount of success towards my goal, so money is not an issue in this consideration. Thank you for your time; please give the most accurate answer you are able to, even if it means that I will have to wait a longer amount of time for a response!

Issue migrating Plex Media Server folder from existing Qnap NAS to new Qnap NAS?

Hello, I have upgraded from a Qnap TS-251B (old NAS) to a TS-653D (new NAS). I am trying to migrate my Plex Media Server Metadata to the new NAS. Before migrating, I watched the NAS Compares YouTube video "How To Migrate Export/Move Your PLEX Folder to a New NAS?" I ensured both the old and new NAS are using QTS and have the same firmware and also made sure they both have the same Plex Media Server build. I enabled ssh on the old and new NAS and was able to connect using FileZilla via sftp (I have a mac so I can't use WinSCP). I copied the Plex Media Server folder from the old NAS to my computer with no problem. After it completed, I tried to overwrite the Plex Media Server folder on the new NAS and received a "write: permission denied; file transfer error." I also tried to delete the existing Plex Media Server folder on the new NAS with the same result..."write: permission denied; file transfer error." I even tried to change the attributes for the Plex Media Server folder and get "permission denied" error. All of these attempts were made while logged into the server through FileZilla with my admin name and password and used port 22. I looked in the control panel of the new NAS to see if there is a setting somewhere but only have settings for shared folders. I need write access to the Plex Media Server folder that is located at /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/PlexMediaServer/Library/Plex media Server. In the example screenshot I only tried to copy the Preferences.xml file over but I get the write: permission denied; file transfer error for all files. Is there something that I am missing?

How to add second hard drive to working QNAP TS-230?

I have an existing TS-230 NAS with one Seagate Ironwolf 4TB drive. It's been working for a few months. I have a 2TB WD Purple Surveillance HD from my previous QNAP TS-128A NAS. Can I add the 2TB drive to the TS-230 even though it's not the same type/size as the 4TB? I don't need RAID. I just want more storage space. I'm a novice. Any tricks to doing this? Thanks.
