I'm trying to make a system that will work well under high temp conditions. 

But they need 1T storage. SSD is out the budget. 

I decided on a  1 TB Hitachi 5400RPm

 

But I know it will be slow and still might over heat. 

 

I see this Samsung PM830 32GB SSD HDD Mini PCIe on amazon for like $25. 

The system is a Dell Latitude E6400 with a T9900 processor. So, it's more of a workhorse than a race car. 

 

I was thinking of installing Win7 64bit, outlook and another software that requires another 2.2 gb on the SSD and using the 1Tb for everything else. 

 

I havent done this before. So, what am I overlooking? 

 

Would using a 32GB mini-pci SSD for the OS keep this cooler?

Honestly I don't see the point in such a smal SSD.  It would just add to the heat.  If your concerned about excessive heat on the HD they do make hard drive coolers you can install.

Thank you.

The point would be to reduce the movement of the hard drive and thus heat. But, I'm not an expert and I'm just bouncing this off you guys to decide whether to do it.

 

But, frankly since the intended user is not tech savvy it would probably just cause much confusion and delay as programs would keep trying to install on that drive.

 

This is on a laptop.  A dell Latitude E6400.

Can you put a hard drive cooler on that?   What is it called.

I bought a laptop cooler.

I think a laptop cooler would suffice as there are no aftermarket HDD coolers small enough (currently) to fit inside a laptop enclosure.

This is going to be used in Mumbai.  I was thinking of redoing the thermal paste on the CPU and the video card.

I know it helped with overheating on my same make and model computer.  The CPU usage would go up to 100% and I had to reboot. Hot air from fan. Redid the thermal paste and it fixed it.

 

I just want to get this person able to work and not have to worry about the computer.
