And time. HDD's for the most part dont need active AIR cooling let alone WC!

Probably a good idea to avoid adding anything to a loop that does not need to be there; more places for leaks, flow restriction, etc.

If someone is really worried about how hot their hdd runs, active air cooling works just fine. As in put a frigin fan infront of it or on it to blow some cool air and the hdd will cool down quite a bit.

I am surprised no one has made a SSD water cooling block yet.

what if your case has really poor airflow... i read somewhere that very hot can short the hdd lifetime...

40C should be perfectly fine, (probably really good IMO) only need to worry if you get well over 50c.
