Default anyone else keep their desktop hd outside of the case?

I started running my cases completely open on one side, with the hd resting on thin cardboard box to keep everything cooler, and my last computer lasted 8 years. I bought a backup that is 7 years old now, and JUST started using it because the cpu corrupted on the last one. I dunno, this one runs really really well, and even under hard processing only gets to like 110-115 degrees. I dont have a particularly dusty area, and no one smokes. so I think its fine. fans and sinks dont get clogged really. I had to clean the other computer once.

to clarify the hd is on a cardboard box completely outside of the case, and has a hole in the bottom, so its just a airduct framework to hold up the hd

I've got a HDD dock that goes in one of the DVD/CD drive slots. So I can hot swap SATA drives. One small and fast HDD inside in the normal spot. My tower is water-cooled and I don't overclock by very much so it keeps pretty cool.

You're right, though, keeping an HDD cool (or rather, not letting it get heat cycled over and over again) can extend the life of it.

I've taken both of the aluminium side of mine.

Put them to good use:
