CD ROMS and HDs
Posted on 2000-03-13
I got myself a new Pioneer SCSI 40x CD ROM. It makes a lot of noise I guess when spinning up. I dont know if this is generally the case with newer faster cd roms, can someone pls comment on theirs?
I remember when the old 4x cd roms were quieter, perhaps its simply the motor rotating faster, but the sound is irritating.
Also, I have a 27 gig UDMA 66 Maxtor (7200 RPM) HD. It gets extremely hot underneath, that I am unable to touch it compared to my 5400 RPM Quantum UDMA 33. Should it get so hot that I cant touch it, and can it do damage if it remains this hot?
I was thinking of getting an HD cooler, but I also wanted a removable rack caddy, anyone know if you can have both caddy and cooler on one?
