yea it's just a myth, the heat output of a HDD is more dependend on the model than on the spin speed - a 7200rpm samsung HDD can for example run cooler than a 5400rpm maxtor (or a 7200rpm samsung of a newer gen cooler than a 5400rpm samsung of an older gen)

and the temperature influence of the weather/season is probably higher than that of a normal HDD anyway

so if i wanted to get a new hard drive, what would be a good brand to go with?

hmm.. if you just want to grab one without having to do much research you should probably go with a Seagate or Samsung, as their line ups are pretty consitently good/well received, while Hitachi, Western Digital or Toshiba have some good and some bad hard disks judging by reviews/user feedback
