Extreme Temp Hard Drive Experiences
With all the discussions going around about operating hard drive at extreme temps, I think its a good idea to have a thread devoted to user's experience with their HD. So other users can make informed decisions when they purchase hard drives for their carpc.
Please post your hard drive model and working limits, also where your pc is mounted.
Here is mine:
Patriot Warp V.2 mounted in the trunk
Max Temp: +33*C
Min Temp: -15*C (broke after)
Wouldn't recommend this one for cold winters.
OCZ Vertex 32GB mounted in the trunk
Max Temp: +33*C (this is as hot as it gets here this summer)
Min Temp: -30*C (still working fine, waiting for even colder temp to see)
