Just added the new storage hdd seamlessly to my sony vaio desktop 2005 model. the hardware plugged into the MB and thermaltake 430w ps real sweet like. any expectations from the two fan rig? (one three pin fan blows onto cpu and the other three pin fan blows out from enclosure)......is it going to get too hot to handle? countermeasures? western digital was the king of hdd back in the day, is it still true?

ok, my print screen key isn't working to capture the window display, any hints to get that window to copy/paste into an image? i think snagit freeware used to work in that capacity, will have to look it up.

Unless your system was very marginal previously, the addition of a 1TB HDD shouldn't make much difference as modern HDDs are very efficient powerwise. If, however, your machine was woefully underpowered to begin with, the addition could be "the straw that broke the camel's back".
To Err is human; to really foul things up requires a Bleeping Computer!
