why would u want to? :confused:
I have 3 harddrives next to each other a Raptor in the middle for 6 months now (the other 2 for 2 years) and they have been running almost 24/7 the whole time and havent had a singel problem

Ya, cooling harddrives just seems silly to me, i have 3 harddrives running 24/7 very close together in a case, all 3 of them are at room temp all the time...

I thought about it... but its not necessary. You don't get any additional performance from WC'ing a HD

I just have a low rpm 120 blowing over my raptor and others and they're always cool to the touch.

Thank you for all your guys fast replies. It's clear to me now that I only want to watercool my nForce4 Chipset and even a BFG AGEIA PhysX Processor card. I own two Koolance Hydro Packs which I'll be selling soon....... :D

Same, my case has a low rpm hdd fan which keeps them cool.

Meh, I just taped a 120mm fan to the side of my hard drive cage.

Makes perfect since to fan cool the drives. I have one fan blowing on 4 HDD.
I'm working on getting the second one installed later this week.

Not really necessary and it introduces the possibility of more potential leak locations.
