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?
