a super low fan or using 2 fronts which go over the hd is not a bad idea. My hd temps are ultra low. Longevity of my gear and data is paramount to all things. In the past I have placed a ultra low rpm 80mm fan on the hd facing it flat on 8)

El~Jefe, while I may agree on several points, if you ever had that a single HDD overheated in any regularly sized tower-style case, you mistook sort of a furnace for an ATX enclosure.

I havent even switched to SSD. There are so many questions about how to make a ssd live longer.

Which questions, if I may take the liberty to ask?

Mostly correct: but that's why back up exists, isn't it?
Moreover data recovery never came for cheap (so that only business-class users may afford it: but those surely will have backups).

Check Techreport (or XtremeSystems) SSD-torture tests: most worries are overrated, almost like either heaven existence or features.

And back in the days when CS601 was a good case, we would not use any intake fans at all. We even cut holes in the bottom of our trusted cases because intake areas were to small or non existent.

But intake fans? :shock:

backups is not a bad idea. I need a drive for that. I guess I could get a new drive and use my older drive as a backup.

I have a lot of data most of it is music. 300 gb of music :(

Graphite Series™ 760T is kinda ruined with the windowed sides.

Never understood why companies make cases with transparent sides, who the hell wants to look at the ugly components..

I have a Samsung 830 and a Samsung 840 Pro, using each as a boot / only drive in two different PCs. Rock solid, not an issue with XP or Win 7. I trust them way more than I do my traditional hard drives.

trust it with what, didint we just talk about backups?? [scratches head]
I trust modern ssds as much as rotational ones now. maybe even more in certain applications. carputers/laptops/media players/ or anything thats exposed to high heat and or large vibrations.

More heavy plastic less ticking, less resonating and less sound transfer. They make musical instruments out of metal and not plastic for a reason. My 3 years with acrylic cases has shown how great heavy plastic is compared to metal. Also, I have keep a rather tidy interior. Sometimes I even put some mood lighting in :D THis case is going to get some mood lighting. I will probably do red and yellow interior lighting and some white cable management.

You can wrap all your wires and make them look snazy too.
