Re: Does external drive with os require cooling?
This is all hearsay, but from what I've read you want to stay at or under 50*C. 55* is pushing it, if you ask me. I've heard (again, who knows...) that temperature is why laptop HDDs can fail quicker in some cases than normal drives...because they have little to no cooling...but who knows. I'm sure someone here does...
