My room is 17c. I'm in England we don't use AC. It's always cool
I just checked again. And the hard drive is 46c under load
At night the hdd is warmer because I close my door and windows.. and I put the hdd on top of the cdrom drive when I took that reading. I've since moved it onto the proper hdd tray thing inside the case and it's 46c at load (but climbing slowly)..
When I say 'load' I mean I'm reading and writing (inverting 0s to 1s and back again, four times) at full force.
Yah, my case totally sucks. No side panel even XD The motherboard is being held up by a piece of wood also... I should take a photo >.<
I guess I don't need to worry. 30c idle and 46c extreme load seems fine. but it is raising slowlyEdited by antd - 5/18/09 at 5:59am
