I have had my hard drives getting over heated and failing too frequently. Not sure if its due to bad drives or something else. I dont really play games on my pc. But its on most of the time of the day n night. main activiities is download torrent files and watch movies and some rare burning and surf the net.
However i think the drives that i buy might not be suitable to handle to being on 24/7 that is why they are failing after getting too hot probably.
I have attached a hard disk cooler ,and 2 fans running inside the pc and still…
I use Hdd health v 3.2 beta to monitor it which is giving me Temp: 42 celcius and health 51%.
This is bad news!
I had bad experiences with ide seagate 400gb and my silent sata samsung spinpoint 250gb disappeared from bios. this is so annoying.
Can anyone of you guys suggest a hard disk that can handle downloading 24/7 and maybe switched off once it a week or very rarely,also if u use any specific cooling system inside ur case?
Thanks ahead for all ur replies.
