    Beefy,

    If your case is getting too hot I would be worried if that heat is causing damage to your hard drive or motherboard. I would get a hard drive cooling unit. I think you can get them from CompUSA they look kind of like a box that you can put your drive in and it has fans and a filter to keep dust and other stuff from harming your drive. Last I knew they weren't too pricey.

    Or you can always buy more cooling fans.

    Your choice.

    I don't think that CompUSA would help him out to much as he lives in Australia. ;)

    Woops... that would pose a problem.

    Maybe someone else knows of a store in Australia that carries hard drive cooling units?

    since the death of my 15 month old deathstar last week.

    I bought a new WD 80GIG Special Edition drive. It works great but now there is one problem. Several posts up in this thread I was told that IBM drives have internal temperature probes. And that program that I used to use at hddtemperature.com worked great. Now it doesn't seem to work on my new disk. Do WD's not have internal probes?

    Well I can now tell ya's (as I'm now in the house) that the WD JB800 in Thunder (see sig) is runnin' at 33.3C (or 5.2C above room temp (currently 28.1C) and as usual still under full load with SMART FAN II for the drive cage off (temp goes down 0.6C with SMART FAN II @ 4000rpm but my senses rebell). ;)
