HDD heat while inside PS2
Hi guys, I haven't seen a thread dedicated to this so I thought I'd start one. First I'd like to say that this forum is great, and it has helped me install the HDD and apps and such. Salute to all the guys who have released patches as well as apps. You rock :headbang:
I've been lurking here for a week or two and I got my HDD to work fine. I work with my computer hardware a lot, just as many of you do, and one thing I've tried to do throughout the years is to keep my system cool. The way I have my PC set up, my HDDs are only warm to the touch, they're never hot. Tonight, I played some games off the HDD, and then I took it out to use WinHIIP. The drive was hot.
I know there isn't much you can do about it except mounting it externally with some modication, but I'm just wondering what you guys think about this issue. My drive is a Seagate 160GB 7200RPM. Heat definitely shortens life, but how many of you are concerned? How long have you had your drive, any problems? Thoughts?
