freezer packs

Post by Elrast » Sat Aug 29, 2020 7:32 pm

Hi all

Reporting back after 8 years :P I installed a couple of spinning HDs into a HDPlex case around 9 years ago (I think), using a couple of flexible freezer packs for acoustic isolation.

I opened the case today for my... regular 9 yearly maintenance.... and found that all the content of the freezer packs are long gone. The HDDs are still functioning and everything else in the HDPlex case was otherwise unaffected.

Anyway. Single data point, YMMV and all that.

So you need to follow. I dismantle my computer twice a year and clean it from dust. I monitor the condition of the cooling system. Therefore, there are no problems and there is no big noise even from ordinary coolers - I regularly lubricate them, they work with a minimum noise level.
