True. I try keeping my hard drives as cool as possible. It's an old computer, and when I first built it, I didn't give cooling that much attention, so there are certain things I'm physically limited to in the case. The next computer I build will have a much greater emphasis on cooling. So far, it's handles itself pretty well. But I've had two hard drives crash in it over the years, so who knows what that was due to. Well, one of them was those IBM DeathStars, and the other just happed recently.
PS, I just transferred my data last night, and it seemed to go without a problem. Thanks.
