    I am concerned that the enclosure I purchased (still waiting for the shipment to arrive)

    Rosewill RX30-U2FA External Enclosure USB 2.0 (USB 1.1) 1 port, FireWire 400 2 ports

    will not provide enough cooling (no fan), and the HD will not last very long.

    Can anyone recommend a better enclosure, one with a good fan/cooling system for the internal HD I've ordered?

    Maxtor MaXLine III 7L300RO 300GB 7200 RPM IDE Ultra ATA133 Hard Drive - OEM

    Or is it possible to add a fan to the Rosewill enclosure? Thanks.

    That encosure looks awesome.
    I dont think cooling would be a problem. There are lots of external harddrives that dont have cooling fans either, for instance maxtor. Also the enclosure is made out of metal so that would help dissipate it, the maxtor drives arent even made out of metal, its plastic.
