I've had most of my Quantum drives croak on me over the years (some after 6 
months). Think two were Fireballs. Good thing I do drive mirroring.

Being desperate for drives, I bought four 40Gb Maxtor (UDMA 100) for $94 each.
They're running quite hot to the touch. I may even buy one of those 
screw-on hard drive "undercooler" fans or drive bay coolers I see at the 
Sac. Computer Show.  Anyone else have problems with overheating drives?
