If you have such a problem, remember that the problem is not so much in
the drive but in the way it is used: i.e. try and figure out why the
system needs to access the drive every 2-3 minutes.

If you can increase this time to 15 minutes, you'll not only solve this
problem, but additionally you'll save energy and reduce the heat.
