Hot Hard Drive?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
According to HD Tune, my Hard drive temperature is 38C. This is with 2 120MM fans blowing on it. Is this a hot tempereature for a hard drive?

A little on the warm side, but it is fine for hard drives, although that does seem hot for that many fans on it. The temperature may be inaccurate though, I wouldn't worry about it .

As Ducky said, yeah that's a little toasty but nothing to worry about mate.

well not really that hot

if you run SpinRite 6 you can see the HD temp go up to 50c before you will get the over temp warning at about 52c

and this is running the HD at 100% pretty much so 38c isnt that much
