Their are a large number of posts in the Storage News Group that they run to
hot but this is not confirmed with the www.storagereview.com of these
drives.

Original 1994-era barracudas _REQUIRE_ forced air cooling.

They've improved a lot since then.

Hiya well I'm running two 160gig s7200.7 drive plus a couple of other
different ones and they have both performed ok so far. Ones got the 2meg
buffer and one the 8meg.
Personally I think they are good value for money from paradigm and they
are nice and quiet which is important to me.
They do run reasonably hot althought that maybe cause they are the top
two of 4 drives in my 3.5 inch bay anf they are rated up to 60C
according to their specs.
