According to Seagate's R&D labs we can expect 3.5-inch 300-terabit hard drives within a matter of years. Currently Seagate is using perpendicular recording but in the next decade we can expect heat-assisted magnetic recording (HARM) , which will boost storage densities to as much as 50 terabits per square inch.

The technology allows a smaller number of grains to be used for each bit of data, taking advantage of high-stability magnetic compounds such as iron platinum. In the meantime, Hitachi is shipping a 1 TB HDD sometime this year. It is expected to retail for $399.

Mr. Smith

to get those scratches out you want one of those nylon finishing pads and just do the whole front in the same direction as the original brushing. Ill see if i have any about and post a pic so you know what i'm on about. then go over it once the scratches are out with some micro paper or an abrasive like Tcut

Edit: hang on, is that even brushed steel? :confused:



Tis aluminum... Why? Is the method you describe for steel?

I would bang that Frag. How could you ever get rid of such a sexii rig?

It's a PC75 - if it has a window. Check my work log for some internals and also pics of putting a 360 rad on the top inside it

Mr. Smith
I want this rig to be as silent as possible yet still deliver decent temps with an OC... I'm stuck at 3.33 but hopefully the new mobo will sort that, failing that i'm getting the quad in q2 anyhow.

I hear putting the rad on the bottom gives better performance. Is this true, if so why?

What fans can anyone recommend bearing in mind I want near silence and performance lol (the two just don't go together do they lol)

Putting the rad on the bottom of the case allows you to get a fresh intake airflow from underneath the case and have the air pushed in to the case and out the exhaust areas, works really well if you add 1 or 2 120mm exhaust fans on the top.

When you mount the rad on the top of the case you have 2 options, blow in to case or out of case. Blowing in to case gives you colder ambient air passing by the rads fins and gives better overall loop temps but screws the air circulation inside the case and creates some nasty dust problems. Blowing out of the case means ur blowing the hot air from inside the case through the rad making the radiator less effective but acts as a good means of case exhaust. I went with the air blowing in to the case for my build.

Cheers, I was aware of this bit though. I have my current rad top mounted pulling air into the case - the dust thing is a nightmare! I'm tempted to switch the fans around (sucking the hot air through rad and out of case) to see what effect this has on my temps.

Mr. Smith
I need some advice, for a change!

Case arrived... Not that impressed tbh. Doesn't have a window - but thats cool as I had an idea...

Seems well old and dirty. I'm stuck with it now so how do I clean this sucker up?

Torn between 2 finishes. Somehow get the scratches out and keep the brushed alu look (if possible)

Or polish the fook out of it to get rid of the scratched thus creating a mirror-ish finish...

Either way, how do I do it???

I'd like to use a power tool if poss as the prospects of hand sanding this doesn't appeal.

Cheers

But you know how much you use those muscles :p

Actually found a website to do with all sorts of finishings, May be of help.

First of all give the whole thing a good clean with ethanol to see how bad it is. Might be salvagable

My Lian was brand new and gorgeous when I got it :D
