    Thats true I didn't even think of that. In that case you may want to get some sort of thermal compound to go between the HD and the case. There are pinholes on top of the HD which can not be covered though, so I'm not exactly sure how to do it.

    I do know that others have done such a thing, so searching will probally find you the answer.

    EDIT: after a bit of searching it looks like you would defintely benefit from a 'heat conductive pad' or some other thermal pad, like what is sometimes used to adhere chipset coolers to a chip. Rather than any aqueous thermal compound.

    good luck

    Awesome, thats what I was trying to find. Not 100% sure, but you could probally find one cheaper if you searched a bit more.

    Koolance makes expensive stuff, so they probally figure that if you pony up the money for their gear in the first place, more than likely you'll spend the extra bit of money on something like a thermal pad.

    you could even use the paper ones that the dentist uses... I'd buy a better one personally

    dry's so quick? I have to wait 24 hours... and I'm lucky its all dry... then again I'm outside in my workshop (shed out back) when its in the 40's outside...

    by the way, I've been wondering, what does mumble actually translate too... never heard it... girlfriend?
