Hard drive update

December 10th, 2010 · No Comments · Personal

Almost 4 months ago I posted up a DIY tutorial on how to create suspended hard drive racks to fit in a 5.25″ drive bay. This was done with 3.5″ desktop hard drives but I can’t see any reason why it would not also work with 2.5″ laptop hard drives as well.

I promised to post an update on the status of my computer and I’m happy to report that everything is in fine working order. The drives themselves are still comfortably seated in their mountings, the ties suspending them in the racks do not appear to have become stretched out and the entire case can remain ice cold under ambient air conditions of around 80°F. I have even overclocked my CPU and GPU with no serious heat issues.

I’m extremely happy with this mod and would definitely suggest it to anyone with extra hard drives but no extra hard drive mounting space in their rig. Heck, even if you do have extra hard drive mounts, this is still a great option to reduce heat and allow for better case airflow.
