Bad design. He says himself that:
"The dedicated intake duct ensures that
the PSU fan never ramps up unless absolutely needed. In actual use, it
should just about never ramp up except maybe in very hot weather under
long term high load conditions."
"Long term high load conditions" is something you probably
experience when working with audio. Even just watching a web
page with flash cause high long term CPU usage. There's nothing
more irritating than fans suddenly ramping up.
Oh, I don't. :-) When using plain ext2/3/4 file systems you
receive hints (strange pauses, eventually a random file is
corrupted) that something is wrong long before everything is lost.
I've never lost anything important, but have replaced
my HD many times.

Some people advice scsi or 7000rpm drives as well. It made
sense 10-15 years ago, but probably not anymore...
