I have hard drive coolers and they are a great investment for protecting your data from hard drive malfunctions… Though I doubt that these coolers will be as efficient if your current ventilated cooling for your case is subpar…

I don’t see why you have to have these unless you bought a horrible cheap HDD. If the HDD is good, you shouldn’t need a cooler. Proper case cooling is probably the best thing you can do to keep everything else cool.

Yes, well, I have heard (read, actually) that I shouldn’t give a damn, as long as my drive isn’t on fire… [ok, at least as long as it is not very hot]. Who says so? Google does: http://www.engadget.com/2007/02/18/massive-google-hard-drive-survey-turns-up-very-interesting-thing/ Oh, and I agree with shaolin, overall.

That thing seems bogus to me but for a silent PC i’d rather have it than not.

I’ve had Maxtor drives fail inside hard disk enclosures where the fan gave out. Those things got outrageously hot.
