I have a Plex PX-740UF (http://www.plextor.be/products/px-740uf.asp). Well, it’s not a bad drive, and after crossflashing it to a Benq 1640 I like it even more, but there’s one really annoying thing: This external drive has a very loud fan.
Has anyone deactivated the fan? Is it safe to do so? Or will the drive really die the heat-death?
