  1. Hi :)

    You COULD but why,,HDs don't suffer from heat problems...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. If your HDD overheat (Like mine), Put a fan blowing on them. I use to get 67c and now they chill at 23c (I think that was a bit high but yea.) Best of luck.
  3. should i put the fan on the green bit

    and if so for this I would need to mout the hdd upside down

    and have the fan blowing air towards the green bit
  4. it works

    i turned it upside down and put a fan on top of it, not even attached


    past temps 48c

    now it hovers around 26c

    Hi :)

    I still don't see why, we build computers in my shops and we NEVER bother to cool hds... no reason to...

    All the best Brett :)
  6. mine was hot

    Also, I halved the temperature of it,

    even If I didn't need to.
