I pondered this when I was seriously looking at backup options and decided to go with a removable drive bay. I have two drives that I swap on a semi-regular basis, I keep the "out" one at the bank in a safety deposit box. My reasoning for this was that with an external drive it's so easy to forget t...

I just realized that I never got back here with an update.

Folding on a dual boot X2 machine

I'm running two instances of folding on a dual processor machine, these are running in Vista, Beta2. I like Vista but at the moment certain of my programs and devices aren't supported, so I'll boot into XP when needed. However, I'd also like to get FAH to run on XP, using the same WU's that Vista us...

Actualy it's the coolest of all my internal drives. It's mounted inside of an Aluminum case and the airflow through the, now empty, fan hole is not too bad. The drive is at 27C whereas the others are in the mid 30s.

If you pull the top bay covers off and look down the passage created, you can see the CPU cooler. This is the most direct path for airflow, no twists turns or other obstructins to deal with. On my rig I found this to have the most benefit and made grills to cover the open bays.

Can you not go up and over? Up the back wall and over the top of the board. I added an extension to the four pin plug for mine.

The simplest mod of all will improve your airflow: remove the slatted front doors. Just pop them open and depress the tab by the top hinge. The filters remain in place, and look okay. It looks like you have two single-bay air filters/inlets in the bottom 5" bays. What are those? Thanks, been there,...

I had been looking at those myself, they would be fine if you didn't need a large airflow, they are a bit restrictive for what I wanted. What they do have going for them is that they are cone shaped so the surface area is increased. The ones I was looking at the wire was actually thicker than the ho...

Do you have any drives in the upper cage? If not I'd be inclined to take out the cage and mount the fan at the front. You may be just recirculating some of the air in your setup now and not drawing all of the fresh air that you could.

You're running the same CPU as I am, and slightly overclocked to boot.
