Not to sure if this fits here or somewhere else.

Question: In the rather long postings in Drewson99 post (F*ing Irritating)
there was mention of having 2 HD's stacked as being a problem with
Is there a good remedy to cool stacked HD's? I am only asking this
cause my case does not have anymore open slots to move them to.
I have 2 CD drives, 2 HD's and a floppy. I only have 5 slots.
I am considering dropping the floppy as I really do not use it anymore.
I either email small files or burn them.
Any ideas are always appreciated
I am asking this due to overheating related problems with burning
and encoding that I have had since getting the CD-RW drive.

Personally I doubt his problem was overheating... but anyways...
I always try to keep my "hot" devides seperated by at least on drive bay. These include fast drives and dvd-roms. mainly. I've had more than one cd-rw drive go belly up from being over a DVD-Rom drive it's a real PITA. If you cannot seperate the drives start lookin at 5.25 drive enclosures, fan inserts, or a bigger case.
Bigger Case, Duh. Why did I not think of that. Thanks.
Probably cost less than getting like 80 fans (j/k)
I don't think heat is the problem either, but I was curious what the HDD coolers were...
