Default NEC and Hitachi team to water-cool hard drives

Just another great sounding feature to list on the final product.

What was those statistics Google had again, cooling a hard drive below its standard temperature was almost as bad as letting the drive overheat or something to that effect?

It is possible, but only if you have the right knowledge to do so

you risk data corruption easily, not worth the small "potential" speed increase
