SMART is a data protection utility that most current hard drives use. If a hard drive has SMART, that's good.

SMART does not lower PC performance. Please make sure you know about a topic before you post.....

Anyway, SMART isn't used so much for overheating as for drive failure prediction. Here's a good article on it:

I've moved this into the General Computer Hardware and Software section.

yeah, SMART can be a good thing. I always thought it slowed the hard drive down so didn't turn it on, but now I know that isn't true, I might just do it.

Plus, even if it did slow it down, I guess knowing when your hard drive is likely to fail is a good thing Otherwise, you won't have a hard drive to slow down at all...

Hmmm.... I can't find any evidence at the moment, so I apologize for the remark. I still don't think it lowers performance though, so if you could find some reliable reference, link it! Otherwise, yeah, I'm pretty sure it doesn't.
