  2. Clean a hard drive

    I use a progam called Dban for cleaning off all the data.

    Edit: If you don't care about the hard drive getting broken (hey I destroy all my old HD's), then do what I do. Real secure data removal requires the following:

    Rifle (I have an SKS)
    10-15 Rounds FMJ (I use Chinese Steel Core 124gr 7.62x39mm, but bonus points if you use incendiary (black tip) rounds.)
    Ability to shoot well.

    Set up the hard drive 20 yards away or more. Scrap metal is possible, but usually the aluminum is pretty tame. Mark 10-15 spots on hard drive to shoot, and 1 in the spindle. Then just step back, shoot, and see that you made data removal quick, easy, and most importantly fun! Nothing says "No Warez Here" like 15 bullet holes in your hard disk!

  3. Overclock your hard drive!!!

    Heres a much easier hack that I realized quite a few years ago that really does work!

    REQUIREMENTS:
    • Hard drive with molex power connection.
    • PSU with more than 1 strand that has molex plugs on it.
    • Wire strippers, soldering iron if you're fancy, electrical tape if you're not.
    STEPS:
    • Take the strand of connectors from your PSU, and decide which one will be the donator for this overclocking adventure.
    • Cut the yellow and orange cables, then twist them together.
    • Find the power connector you've chosen as the overclocking connector, and release the orange cable from the connector. Now use your preferred method to bind them together, then place it back together.
    • Plug in a drive and feel the speed!
    Congratulations! You've just overclocked your hard drive!
