I'm looking to buy a Seagate SATA w/NCQ feature and I couldn't make a decision whether to get a 7200.7 or 7200.8 after reading through many online review/benchmarks. 7200.8 is generally faster than 7200.7 in exchange of heat and noise. Since heat is the no.1 enemy of hdd, I kind of hesitate to purchase it. I have 2 vantec 80mm case fans btw. Pricsewise, they are roughly $5 difference so money is no problem. Any feedback is welcome. Thanks.
