Which HD 40GB (or more), ATA100 or 133, 7200rpm, 2MB cache is the best: Samsung, Seagate, Maxtor, Quantum, IBM, Fujitsu...
I heard that Quantum and Samsung are the worst and IBM, Fujitsu, Seagate are the best. Is this true?

???And also: Do I need a HD cooler (my max case temp is 45C)???

Avoid IBM.
Seagate, Maxtor and WD are great.

if you have a standard case with casefans then normal airflow will be sufficient.

given that your casetemp is 45C i would have to say one of the following things.

A. you live in a very hot climate, and thus it might be a good idea getting a HDD cooler or put the HDD behind the front casefan (assuming there is one)

B. if the room temp is cool, yet your casetemp 45C, i would seriously reccomend better case cooling.

C. if the case feels cool, then the temp is being missreported.

Don't buy a IBM drive. They are the worst.
