Getting a new hard drive soon.
Getting a new hard drive soon. –
I'm going with either a 1tb or a 2tb hard drive, but the speed is what I am concerned about.
I have read that some people have problems with certain brands and RPM speeds.
From what I have gathered it is best to get a seagate.
As for RPMs I have read that some people have problems with 7200, while others have said theirs works fine. Can anyone clear this up for me?
My final question is another about the 7200 RPM thing. I read that some people get the ylod because of the extra heat, but would it be possible to alleviate the heat by having the hard drive on the outside as I have seen on youtube via sata extension cable/external hdd power cable?
Edit: I feel stupid for not searching as hard as I could of.
So it seems I will be purchasing a 1 tb drive as that is the maximum people say works.
I am still curious about the heat thing though.
