    you can try modifying your case panels to hold 2 small fans. :)

    if you can arrange it to blow air upon the HD, then i don't think you'll need a HD cooler

    So r u guys saying that all 7200rpm hard disks should have a cooler or a fan blowing on it? Mine's a Maxtor and it's running at 7200rpm...

    And how do I find out at how many Celcius degrees my hard disk is currently running at? :roll:

    no, but we're saying that the hd will last longer only. try MBM5 or speedfan to see whether you hd supports reading temps

    lung. not all hard disks comes with onboard temp probe.

    another software you can use is ActiveSMART.

    Especially WD harddisks. No monitoring.

    My bro's Deathstar died. It doesn't have any cooling. That could be the reason why it died.

    So do you think my Maxtor will have an onboard temp probe? How do I find out...

    erm. depends on which model la

    the ones i used for review, one has and one doesn't. some new HDD don't have, i heard WD don't have.


    go there download ActiveSMART

    if your HDD has temp probe inside, it will state the temperature.
