Harddrive Operating Temperature??? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Well if your HDD is performing like it should be then iguess dont worry about the heat but really i do reccomend getting a HDD cooler to keep it healthy if you can.

Here is a HDD cooler : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835166013

well I emailed WD about the problem so they should be getting back to me soon.

I also felt the HDD and it didnt feel that hot. just as warm as my Hitachi HDD which idles at 32C so im guessing I have a faulty SMART sensor on the HDD. I heard that WD shipped some HDD with faulty sensors in some HDD. I guess I'm one of those unlucky ppl.

Sounds Like a smart Move ..Personally if you feel its Faulty RMA.
