Interesting article. From an experienced user standpoint, this would be common-sense. You can't really blame Acorn, third-party manufacturers built such hard-drives. In any case, time has moved on, today's systems dissipate heat in a much better way. DR has a point - how can one fan remove all the heat from such a bloated system?

You can't think of everything when futureproofing a machine, such as global warming!

One other factor is how over the years, dust and filth build up in various locations inside the machine, which can also lead to overheating.

  • South East show organisers in hunt for new venue
    This year's South East RISC OS show was the last to be held at the Guildford Technical College, reports Martin Hansen. The organisers, SASAUG, struggled to fill the hall last month after a few regular exhibitors pulled out, forcing show officials to look for a new venue for next year's affair. The group have used the college's campus since 2002, which marked the launch of the Castle Iyonix.
