Every day you turn off your computer and go home thinking that your data are safe and secure on your computer, on your hard disk. But do you know that even a hard disk can break down? And it means that all the data you store there will be lost!
The problem of cooling the computer is not new. The more powerful and faster computers become, the “hotter” they get. The modern Intel Core processor radiates more than 70W of heat!!! Other hardware is not far behind. Coolers on video cards, additional coolers inside computer cases and power supply units are quite common nowadays.
And only hard disks have no additional means to cool them off while they are constantly surrounded by heat-radiating hardware. When the temperature of a hard disk rises by 10°C, its reliability becomes TWO TIMES LESS! According to manufactures1, the normal recommended working temperature of a hard disk is 35-40°С. Once it rises by just 10°С – from 40°С to 50°С, the safety of its work becomes more than two times less!
