Hard Drives running extremely hot. Any advice? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
If you've had problems with melted pins and now your HDDs are running hot I would take a look at your PSU with a multimeter and make sure it's not on the fritz.

I just looked at the resource monitor while I was playing Sleeping Dogs. Both hard drives reached 70 degrees C and the highest process item in Disk Activity was System and not HKShip (the game I was playing) Is this normal? It was and still is writing 1,416,527 bit/second. It stays there constantly.

Well the computer still has the melted pins, I'm sending in the board tomorrow to Gigabyte for an RMA. Could this be an issue as well? Somehow the computer still runs.

it's pretty normal not to have the game using your hard drive all the time. You can see what "System" is doing though by looking at what file it's writing to. It could be the indexing doing something or another system process. Possibly pre/super fetch. I have all of that junk disabled due to having a SSD. Chrome, as I type, has the most disk activity (6k Bytes/sec)

I just launched borderlands 2 and continued my game. BL2 barely even registering disk activity.

Have you done a virus scan recently?

Could this possibly be caused by a virus?

I don't like the socket pins melted and I point to the PSU but now you've found some process writing a constant 1.4 million bits a second?

I would take a look into some deep level virus scans and if it comes up clear then I would try to run the same games with AV turned OFF to make sure it's not a recurring process.

I understand this but, i'm not sure how to respond, I guess all i can really say is that i hope it isn't a sing of failure. I don't know why it's happening but, i know there are steps you can take to help remedy the problem.
