Has anyone run one of these (or similar) with two hard drive?

OK, I'm not looking forward to the extra noise, but are temperatures a concern (for the drives)? They will be right on top of each other in a small space.

Note: This device is used mainly as just a server, and this second drive will be used solely for media to be dished out to media player(s) over the network...

It's all a bit Reddish...
I've been running mine with two 250gb hard drives and a dvd writer since it was first purchased with no problems.

I can't give you specific temps unfortunately but I've never had any problems.

OK... Ta...

On a side note I've got a WD 500GB Blue in there at the moment, and I must admit being a little annoyed at how much noisier it is than the previous 250gb Samsung that was in there... The read clicks are terrible :(

I think I have 1 Samsung and 1 WD 250GB drive. It's modded with a 120mm exhaust and it's pretty quiet (bar the graphics card :p)

It's certainly served me well!

What's your system temp out of interest? Mine seems to live at about 55-56... And then under load go up to around 60.

That's with the original size fan, but replaced with a Nexus Silent one, running at the slowest bios controlled speed possible...

That sounds pretty similar to mine but I'll double check when I'm home.

3200+ xp, 2GB Ram, 2 x 250gb HDD, 7800GS AGP, Pioneer DVD writer.

However, mine does have a large Arctic Cooler shape cut out of the side panel from when I had a 9800 pro in there :p

I've got a 250gig and a 500gig in a G2 shuttle case and it's fine.

Always ran with 2 drives in mine since buying it about 6 years ago, although have upgraded the drives a couple of times.
