Most harddrives are made to be able to run fine to about 55C - 60C. if it's over 50C You should try to put more space in between the hardrives so they're not heating each other up. If possible move it to another bay that's a bit more ventilated, or even install/relocate a fan...

Now add to that the fact that it was placed in the much too small case of a LaCie (Porsche design) plastic case (yes, not metal).
After a while I got a new one, and yes it heated up a little bit less but vibrated like [bleep]. It was a Seagate that LaCie now uses instead of Maxtor.
Oh yes BTW Seagate= Maxtor
Maxtor ? No thanks, I'll pass.
I have another external HD from WesternDigital that is running like 15 hours a day during more than 1.5 years. Of course it's in a metal case, has a fan that you can feel the air blowing out of the case, and of course the case is much bigger than the LaCie.
