    new fan for what?hdd cooling...extra cooling never hurts.
    if u gettin a new hdd.....use one of them for storage and reformat old one to clear up all the junk...of course backup whatever u wanted to save first:)

    you shouldn't need a new fan, altho you may wish to invest in one as 2 HD units working close together can generate a lot of heat, personaly i didn't get any extra cooling when i added a 2nd drive and everything seems fine.

    As for it going slow once you get to 10gb left, have you tried de-fragmenting ??? i know there is a performance dip when a HD fills, but it shouldn't be enough to warrant a new (or additional) drive
