Re: Third and Fourth drives this year

How many watts is your power supply, and how many fans do you have?  That 
sounds like a lot of hardware, translating to a high PS load, lots of heat, 
and possibly poor air flow....  my system has a 550 W supply with 2 fans, 
six case fans (2 in the hard drive cage alone) and the CPU cooler - CPU heat 
sink temp never gets above 39C and case air temp never above 30C.
