Overheating SSD?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi:

I just built my PC in Dec. Last month I got a blue screen after I played Max Payne 3 for about an hour. Immediately I believed I probably got a pair of two bad SSDs but I can’t find anything wrong after running the chkdisk.

After reinstalled the OS, it works fine (not testing on Max Payne yet). However, I start to notice the heat generated from the back of my FT03. I did a quick research and most SSD manufactures state that the SSD does not require any cooling and it can be operated up to 80C.

I have two Kingston SSDnow RAID 0 and a Hitachi 3TB mounted on the back of my FT03. As you know, basically, there’s no air circulation. I downloaded CrystalDisk trying to assess if my HDD temp is under control. On the day I tested it, it was about 80C outside. When I started my PC, both SSD are within 30C. Within 15 mins, (not playing game), they reached 55C and eventually went over 60C after 30 mins.

I understand it is still under the normal temp manufacture suggested but I’m just wondering if anybody else out there have similar issue? Should I be worried?

Mobo: Gigabyte G1 Sniper
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB
HDD: Kingston SSDnow RAID 0 + Seagate 3TB
Cooling: Two factory 12mm fans + Antec H20
Graphic: GTX570

Thanks!

80C? I assume you mean Fahrenheit?

SSD's are pretty heat tolerant, I don't really think they would overheat in a normal enviroment, even without airflow.

No 80C not F. But 80C is the manufacture's suggested max temp. My only went up to 60C. Still high though.

There's no debug code. The bios basically can't even locate one of the SSDs and eventually broke the RAID and kicked one out.

Obviously Fahrenheit because 80°C is 176°F. So it's obviously just a typo.

If it's still ~20°C under the maximum temp, then the BSOD may have been caused by something else. Sometimes, that something else can be the PSU if it's not good enough, so what's the make and model of yours?

It's a computer!

I found something from YouTube.

But I guess FT03 owners here don't experience the same issue.....
