Lol i am 17 so i will try my best to help. Anyways sometimes all you need is a fan in front of the hd drive cage. most cases should have mounts there. my drive hovers around 33 before i got the fan and now it's around a 26. I think that if the drive temp is below 40 you are safe. Hd coolers are nice but as the name suggest u r only cooling ur hd. WHere as an additional case fan cools just as well (probably less noisy) and helps to cool the rest of the system. some hd's have temp probes and you can read the temps with programs like pcwizard 06 or speed fan.
What you're saying that I can a portable household fan (as a cheap alternative) oppsoed to a HD cooler? Anyway I would buy a HD cooler, the only problem is I probably can't fit it in my CPU case. Its not a tower, its one of those flat thing-ies, and the brackets (hard drive cage) that hold my HD are used up... by Hard Drives and an old diskette drive (floppy). Thats unless I replace my old cage and fit a new one. So what to do?
Also thanks for your suggestions you guys.

For your backup disk, you could be it in an external case and only turn it on when you need it, which is better for a backup disk since a power problem could take it out.
