In the name of all things excessive!?

I suppose in a zero airflow environment they would have their use.

You don't need noisy fans for HD's though, 1, maybe 2 quiet 120mm fans do the trick nicely

My single 120mm exhaust fan keeps my drives nicely around 40°C at only ~700rpm

my HDD's are around 30°C !

I read somewhere that every 10°C higher in temp is their lifespan halved ...

I have three 7200rpm 200GB drives all pretty close to each other though, plus my cooling is bare minimum for the sake of noise.
HD's are safe up to 55°C

Oh, they are safe alright, but I was talking life span ...

by the way, I use all Seagate (since about 2 years) / all 7200 rpm

largest is a 160GiB w 8MB cache ...

I say that regardless of all other factors, the original idea was brilliant.
