Good news is that I made a mistake, one wasn't running 55--I mistook the sensor for the motherboard chip diode for the WD--it began with a W!

I got it down to 40*C by just setting a fan behind the hdd's :)

Front Black Ice Micro + PC65

Not sure if this is more appropriate for this forum or somewhere else, but this seemed to provide the closest match. Anyways, I made a post on another message board that I enjoy reading asking for advice about a front mounted radiator and a drive cage dilema, I'd love for the people here to take a p...

Thanks Ralf--I'd forgotten all about that, MBM5 is so "set it up and forget it," ya know? One of the hdd's is hanging out at 45*C, the others are at 55*C

I use MBM5 now... What do you mean, the case temp? My temps are all fine in MBM--- I was referring to specific HDD Temp

[edit: I found a sensor that begins with W that I had not noticed before that is neither case, socket, or chip. It is sitting in the upper 50s]

not sure what the temps are. They are all western digitals, two are raptors, one is a 120/7200/8. The 120 is soooo much hotter than the raptors, which I found pretty strange... Half of me wishes they would burn up so I'd have a good excuse to get some spinpoints :) Is there software to check the tem...

I know this may sound awful, but I believe that the need for hdd cooling is greatly exagerated. I may suspend a quiet fan behind them later on, but I am in no hurry. I mean, imho, not cooling your hdd's is just like overclocking your processor--it won't live as long, but oh well. know what I mean? T...

I'm doing the same thing, a 120 in the top and a dual 80 up front. I don't know how this is going to work out, but I'll be glad to tell you around the end of September when I actually finish building it (money is slow... parts are slow... slow slow slow)

Well, even if you did get the 80 to 120 shrouds, it still wouldn't work as well because the air pushed or pulled by the two 80s is invariably less than that of two 120s at the same speed--If performance is going to be around the same either way, I'd go with the dual 80 just to save space.

I got quiet fans, I got the Zalman hsf, Antec TruePower480 isn't really too noisy... and then I topped it off with 5 WD hard drives which are by far and away the noisest things ever. It ...

barbs for 1/2 ID tubing is what I mean, and while many blocks do come stock with those barbs, just as many come with 3/8 ID compatible barbs. I'd rather not use adapters if I can avoid it.

Maybe I am over simplifying this, but from my understanding, heat shortens the life of anything electronic. If a fan running for a few seconds after shutdown lowers the temperature even just a tiny bit, then it may well extend the life of the PSU. Granted, probably not by much.
