We try a low-tech fix for our high-tech problem

low tech fix for mini lacie problem

Trying our best to come up with a fix for the heating problem we’re seeing with our Core Duo Mac Mini and matching LaCie 500 GB hard drive, we reasoned that a piece of aluminum foil might reflect just enough of the Mini’s heat to keep the LaCie from producing its annoying fan noises.

That worked all of yesterday evening, but by this morning a slight increase in fan noise was noticeable. So we slipped a coaster under the aluminum foil for a bit more insulation, but by the time we came home from church, the LaCie’s fan was noticeably loud. So, nice try, but back to drawing board…
