i'm building an EZ65 for my folks and my hard drive temps are too high. i'm wondering if anyone out there had a similar problem and how they solved it.

i haven't actually chosen a hard drive for them yet, so i've been using a samsung sp1213n from my spare pc (installing everything on it with the intent to ghost it and xfer it to whatever drive i buy them). well, samsung temp just keeps climbing... i think it peaks around 47C, but thats without any stress testing. the samsung's in my main rig rarely go above 35C so these new temps make me a bit uncomfortable.

there's not much room in an EZ65 for more fans, so i'm not sure what to do. i was thinking i might be able to hang a fan (like Zalmans thin 80mm that goes on the ZM80) near the drive, but i'd rather not do anything to weird since this pc will live 1000 miles away so i can't be around to watch it / fix it too often. i've also considered trying a laptop drive, but i don't like the higher cost. anyone have any suggestions? am i just being a baby being worried about 47C+ temps?

The seagate in my box climbs to 40c on average. Max recomended temp for most HDD manufacturers is about 60c, so I wouldn't sweat it to much.
