    Probably not a whole lot diff, but just wondering any 'power users' have a preference which bay to put their boot disk in? (all bays being used, I know some ppl leave the 1st bay unoccupied on purpose)

    id imagine sticking a drive in the optical bay would be coolest, providing the superdrive doesnt get used!

    im sure its pretty equal in the 4 bays

    Inner two ran hotter on previous models. I haven't looked in a long time though. They don't run as cool internally as I'd like.

    Personally always leave bay 1 vacant - allows more air to be passed through the front fan.
