Default One hot maxtor

Since a could almost burn my finger on the maxtor 120 SATA chips, I checked their tems (using my aerogate II temp sensors). My conclusion, this thing is HOT :grin: and it realy needs some cooling.

use a fan for hdd cooling, a waterblock kinda thing will not cool the little chips that need to be cooled.

i strongly advise you to cool the hdd because its one of the most temperature sensitive things around. (50° is high , 55° is too high)

it's not my drive, it's here because it got f*cked and it took powermax about an hour to find a problem and 2 secs to fix it . I wonder when this one is going to die (already had 2 of them, first was doa, second just stoped working :grum: ).
