[filmscanners] Re: OT:Great Customer Service



The problem with all these fancy drives and fast processors is that if any
of the little fans break down, you're dead in the water, with either a
ruined and unreadable disk drive or a ruined and cooked processor and/or
motherboard.  I nearly lost my machine yesterday because of that (the CPU
fan failed, after only one month).

Since we are sliding into OT land, I'll just make this last short comment.

As compared to drives I've had previously, which were slower, and were
cooler.

The tech support guy mentioned to me that their new 10,000 rpm SCSI
drives run so hot that they had to incorporate heat sink fins into the
casing to keep them from overheating. Apparently, the faster they run,
the more heat they tend to produce.  However, apparently, they are also
designed to handle more heat (than their older slower brethren) without
being damaged.  I have two such drives and they are incorporated in a
medium-large tower, mounted as they were designed to be, with one
cooling fan.  The tech guy mentioned that if I was running one of the
faster AMD CPUs I might be better off opting for a 5.25" fanned slot to
place the drive but that Intel based chips run cooler, so it usually
isn't required.
