DIY Hard Drive Cooling for 10 Cents

DIY Hard Drive Cooling for 10 Cents

cool.jpgSimple solution for hard drive cooling, and looks like it works better than many of the commercial solutions. For over a year now I have been able to achieve a 10 – 15 degree Celsius temperature drop on my hard drives simply by using a 10 cent bracket from a local hardware store. Ingredients: 1/2″ bracket, 80mm fan, 3.5″ hard drive. More here via /.

    only problem with this seems to me that the real heat generated is on the other side (where the actual mechanics are). all you’re doing here is cooling the PCB (which also includes the heat sensor…hence the dramatic drop in measured temperature, as opposed to actual temperature where it counts, near the moving parts, platters, etc)
