    My hard drives are HOT! I was installing case out-take and intake fans just now, and my hand came in contact with the hard drive bays. It felt like I was touching a hot stove, and it left a red mark. These suckers are running HOT! Anyone know the cheapest way of cooling these bad boys down? I have three pretty much sitting rigfht on top of each other.

    Well you need space for anything to work. So, first, spread them out, that may mean buying another case, and secondly you can buy HD fans - essentially the HD's sit inside the fan casing. I think you use 5 1/4 drive slots for each HD cooler.

    Make sure your cables aren't blocking airflow.

    Thanks guys. I guess I'll get some HD fans, and I organized the cables better for air flow. It's still sizzling hot after a while though. If these cool fans don't work I'll just take one hard drive out. :-\
