Re: Speedfan Q: What is "remote temperature"? (honda 3300)
Ok, I was doing some searching on some boards and I think I got the temp issue under control. However, both my HD's are "in flames" My 250 gb brand new hd is at like 98% just idling (scary) and the other one (old- 30 gb) around 80% temp
Why is this? is the case too small? its a micro ATX I think. The comp is a hp pavillion 531w.
How do I go about adding a fan? I couldn't find any info on it. How do I know what fits my computer and what size should I get?
If you think you know, but you don't do, you don't know.

Rig up some kind of a fan setup on those hard drives. Those suckers spin at 5400-10,000 RPM. Heat is their enemy. I have 4 hard drives in my computer and they stay at about room temperature because I have a big *** 120mm fan sucking air across them all the time. Cheap insurance that will more than likely extend the life of your drives.
A $5 fan might keep your priceless data safe.
Here's my fan setup. The black plastic is a piece of a DVD case I cut out to make sure that the air being sucked over the hard drives is coming from outside the case, and not just recirculated air from inside the case that's a hell of a lot warmer than my room. Works like a charm
the antec sonata is a sucky case to be overclocking with anyhow...
the vent in front is useless.....
Uhmm, how do you figure? The "vent" in the front s an air inlet. The big *** 120 in the back has to pull air from somewhere. Works out great. As the exhaust fan is pulling air out of the case, the air coming into the case is getting pulled over the hard drives, cooling them down as well.
Cold air comes in the bottom, over the hard drives, padded the CPU heat sink and out the back. Doesn't really get any more efficient than that if you ask me.
