ok so i just got an enclosure today off ebay prity good, only thing im kinda pissed off about is putting sata harddrives in, its abit hard to get it to fit in i gotta bend the cable a hell of alot i can even see the bend mark on the cable, but it seemed to run fine when i stuck in the harddrive from my pc (the drive im going to put in is still on order should have it tomorrow )
the enclosure doesnt have a fan but after 15min use it didnt seem to get all that hot anyways, im just woundering where the best place is to put the external harddrive?
im thinking of sticking it under my bed or down next to my pc (both places will be sitting on the carpit)
since theres no fan to collect dust is this a problem with putting it on the carpit?
i had it sitting on my desk but it seemed to vibrate a tad to much and i wouldnt realy be able to sleep with it running 24/7 which is what i plan to have it doing.
im wanting to put it somewhere out the way where i cant hear it at all...
might add some rubber or something under the harddrive so it can sit on that inside the enclosure so i cant hear it as much as well would this help?
heres the enclosure if ur woundering what it looks like (PSU for it behind it sat next to my laptops, kinda hard to see crapy camera phone):
i wanted it in black but they didnt have any in stock so i just went with the silver, looks prity nice to me anyway
