    as i said to wilmot, my drive ran flawllessly (45Gb 75gxp) for over a year, sitting behind 2x80mm fans...

    what killed it u ask? 2 hours in standard desktop case. nuff said.

    i think the fact it can fall over at any time is most annoying, as i was using smart monitoring software on the drives and all (meant to detect drive errors before they go critical) and it still got me by surprise, i think this just highlights the importance of a true backup system.

    Excellent article. The cooling issue has been a key point when ever i'm tt someone about HD's wether or not in Rd. I started with HD fans on all the HD we build in to any rig, and recently got to mounting all hard drives behind the front case fans. For those people that don't have full 3.5 hidden drive cage cases, I recommend the Evercase hd cage accessory.

    They maybe calling it a HD bracket? Anyway, it's a cheap, neat solution. fyi,
