HDD fan question, quick info apreciated
Ok, here is the situation. I am moving my computer from its old beat up gate way stock case to a brand shiney new one.
The new one has the ability to place a 80mm fan infront of the hard drive bay where my (single) 200gb 7200 rpm maxtor hard drive would be located.
Right now i have a very noise HD far that attaches to the bottom of the HD and has two fans one that blows on and one that sucks off (mind out of the gutter) on it (neither of which come from the outside of the case.
My question is should i run the single 80mm fan now that it will be in the new case (which has direct acces to the front of the case ie. outside) and if so should i have it blowing onto the drive or sucking out fo the drive bay space.
Or would it be better to leave the existing HD fan on...
(the fan fyi would be a vantec stealth 80mm)
i would like to know as this hard disk gets VERY hot...
read: would the new fan setup make up for removing the old one, and if so how should it be set up.
