HOT SCSI HD - overheating?
Posted on 1998-04-27
I have bought a new CONNER Fast-SCSI-II 4.3G hard drive. It is an obscene metal lump, which fits in one of those 3.5 inch slots, but takes up one and a half times the vertical height as yer average floppy drive.
1. What height name is that?
The hard drive is constantly spinning, and gets very hot while on. It never gets too hot to even touch, but I wouldn't like to ever pick it up at that temperature.
2. Is this a problem?
3. How hot are hard drives allowed to get?
4. Will this temperature mean that I shouldn't expect this hard drive to last as long as a cooler-running hard drive?
