6 Hard Drives - IDE Drives Too Hot To Touch - Drive on Promise Card Barely Warm

    Lian-Li Case
    4 case fans
    CPU Fan
    Windows 2003

    I want to use this computer for storage - but with HD's so hot I do
    not think it is 'safe'. What would cause the 'heat'?

    All drives are Western Digital - everything from 30g - 200g.

    Thanks much for your input.

  2. Check to make sure that there is a good case fan circulating the air
    around. Also you can add a fan to cool the hard disk area, if there is
    space for it.

    I have also seen defective drives overheat, but not often.
