    I've had one in my laptop for about 2 years and the SOB is suddenly overheating. Anyone else ever heard of a Hybrid drive overheating?

    Did you double check the thermostat? The pump seal could be going too which causes inefficient cooling between the CPU block and the pump. What kind of coolent are you running?

    No coolant it's just a stock laptop with a 2.5" hybrid drive instead of the stock hard drive. The laptop has one fan that is running. The CPU temp is fine.

    I inject methanol which keeps things cool when the turbo builds boost. You're welcome. :toptip:

    I like the clear flames too. Someone can be burning up and nobody knows why he's screaming.

    I used a few gallons to start a burn pile a few years ago. I was probably 40 ft. away when I started it by tossing a flare. I lost all of the hair on my right leg. The shit has a low flash point. :jj:

    I have one in mine, but it's only a year old. No overheating problems yet.

    I'm not that impressed with hybrid drives. I may just switch it out with a standard drive. I'm assuming a SS drive would run even hotter.

    Get a regular ssd drive. They're great for laptops, less power and actually run cooler.

    I'll check into that. I've been running one on my desktop for several years and it's rock solid. I didn't realize they ran cooler.

    If it gets hot you need to quickly jump into a tub of room temperature water with it.

    If JPEG'ing doesn't work, you might need to tiff it...
