    Depends on chassis in use and surrounding components.

    If you are inquiring as to whether heat dissipation is better just because it is in a vertical position as opposed to horizontal, false.

    Id disagree with you there Shinma. Surely a drive mounted vertically has better convection around it than one mounted horizontally (flat).

    If you think about it, when mounted flat, its conceivable that warm air will get 'trapped' on the flat underside and discipate very slowy.

    Not sure i explained that too well but i know what i mean

    At a guess, it wouldn't make much difference. If you're worried about HD cooling, it's always worth getting a small fan or two in a dedicated HD cooler to keep the temps down. Even the smallest of fans make a huge difference.
