    Cool the outside, and you will cool the inside.

    You don't have to open it up... That would be a bad idea anyway. I think what Zeradul meant was that by cooling the outside (by convection) the temps on the inside will cool (by conduction).

    BTW I have a Barracuda and its a happy little camper.:wave:

    Yes, that was absolutely what I meant... any attempts to add circulation to the inside of a hard drive would result in killing the hard drive, 100% of the time. Unless you live in a vacuum where nothing is airborn.

    I would have more, but like a sucker I sold them back my first year. Apparently being a REALLY poor student convinced me that selling a $150 book back to $10 was a good idea. Didn't take long to figure out that it had more value as a reference book. Besides, I could save more than ten bucks by going home to eat on the weekends. :thumb: :laugh:
