MACH F: The harddisk situation

I have to admit defeat. The Barracuda IV just gets too hot. I was unpleasantly surprised when I found the following quote on SilentPCReview: "the Seagate Barracuda IV has always been a hot operator". Well, there you have it -- this drive just gets too hot!
No problem, thought I: I'll just swap it with the old 20GB drive I also have lying around! So, this morning I placed that drive in the case and proceeded to install WinXP on it. When klik came into the living room, she looked at me and querying into the direction of the kitchen. She thought the electrical kettle was boiling lots of water very hard -- the drive produced that much noise.

So much for that plan.

Tomorrow, I'll start calling around for an old notebook drive...
