HOT sata-2 drive!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
according to HDtune`s temp probe, my sata-2 Western Digital Caviar SE16 is running at 45 to 50 during normal running condidions, even with an akasa hd cooler. is this normal? IDE drives only run at about 20 to 30!

My WD IDE drive goes to 42 at full load (loading games). But that is a little warm. You sure the drive cooler is working right?

I have the same Harddrive and it reads temps in the 30-mid 40's but when I place my hand on the drive it is cool.
WD have stated they know their is a faulty temp sensor.
Here a Link to a Canadian site that may help you
