A lot of people go overboard on cooling their hard drives. According to Google's whitepaper, drives perform best and last the longest between 30-45C. 25-50C isn't terrible, but not ideal. Around 20C and 55C, failure rates start shooting up.

Try to avoid running at temps below 20C or above 55C for long.

I have to do that with my cases. If I'm not careful my drives can drop down to 24-26C. I figured when I switched from my old case with hard drives oriented front to back with the BetaEVO which has the sideways hard drive cages that block some of the airflow it would make it easier, but it isn't working out that way. If anything, the drives cool even better, but less evenly from top to bottom.

It's done.
27 for the green (wouldn't go up) 30 for the vertex2 (don't know if it really important for an SSD) and 32 for the F4 =D
Thanks for the intel

I honestly wouldn't even pay attention to my HD cooling if coolermaster didn't put that fan in front of them for me. I don't really see a point unless you have some velociraptors

To truly be careful, compressed air first, then a microfiber cloth

+rep didn't think of compressed air, mostly because i hate it (condensation around electronics sucks) but even a microfiber cloth scratched my last HAF X window

Straight vinegar on a soft cloth works real well too. Make sure the cloth is free of debris though so you don't scratch the surface.
