    I have holes there for a 120mm, no 80mm holes though...
    and too lazy to make an adapter...
    arent there any others good ways

    buy one of these. they work nice and they cool the drive down, plus you can swap the drive with your friends if they have the same set up. makes it nice for music/movie swaps.

    its the HDD temp. i have a 120gb maxtor in it, and it reads about 32C all the time.

    that&#39;s not bad...any idea what the temp would be without the other thing?
    i would put my maxtor 80gb in it, so that would be even lower i bet
