this cooler is pretty good...way better than the stock coolling fro eVGA 7600GT

without the fan spinning...40C at idle..compare to stock cooling (with fan spinning at half speed) 58C idle

new hard drives can do at least 60Mb per second

Iram is good for seek time,roughly around 0.02ms....hard driveare 4+ms if you get raptor.

USB flash drives has limited write cycles...like 10,000 times...thats it

As far as i can see...there is no real benifit for you to do this
