post #11 of 15
WD actually run cooler then the rest. 36c is perfectly fine. When you get into upper 50's then worry. Seagate and samsung are two that tend to run hot

For those that think 65C is ok for a hard drive, it might be but you could be shortening the life of the drive. Most drive manufacturers have an operating temp limit of 50C in there spec. If your drive is too hot, you just need to add a little airflow directly over the drive.
