Detachable Hard Disk Drive having Cooling Holes for Chip Modules

      Disclosed is a design of a detachable Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
which has cooling holes.

      These holes prevent an internal HDD, especially chip modules,
from overheat, prevent some conductive material entering a detachable
HDD and shorting electrical circuit, and also can prevent a person
from touching the electrical card inside.

      The Figure shows this new HDD design.  The place of the holes
should be just above the chip modules on the electrical card of the
internal HDD.  The width between the detachable HDD case and the
modules should be narrow enough to prevent some conductive material
entering inside.  The width of the hole should be less than that of
the module.  These holes cool the internal HDD, especially the chip
modules which become very hot, and prevent from overheat.  Some
conductive material is hard to enter from the hole because the width
between the detachable HDD case and the chip module is narrow.  This
prevents from shorting the electrical circuit of the internal HDD.
It is very hard for a person to touch the electrical card inside.
This protects the electrical circuit from static electricity.
