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:)

I may actually be insane.

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
