I bought my girlfriend a new case not too long ago that holds up to 5 hdds sideways in the bottom tray. Its been runnin fine for about 2 months and now its starting to stall. You can hear it slow down then speed up again and everything running at the time slows down and speeds up right along with it. Movies.sound,programs, even the mouse pointer. Im wonderin if its hard on the drive to run like that or if maybe I just got a bad one. Its a WD 40gig and I got it the same time as the case. Ive checked the disc for errors (none) and defragged but that didnt fix it. Im gonna try mounting it normally in a free 5.25 bay when I get a chance but I think it may be too late if its already damaged. The guy at the store said its alright to install them that way but they have misinformed me a couple of times before. The case is built to hold them that way so youd think it was alright. Anyone know if this is okay or not?
