the only way I know to cool a hard drive is to remove the plastic casing above it and expose it to the open air (which is a bad idea and doesnt cool it that much).

also download hwmonitor @
this program allows you to see reatltime the temperature of the hard drive in celsius orfahrenheit
run the program and go to the hard drive section. there should be something that says temperature assembly .
