doesnt this mean that my HDD is turned into a smoking pile of ash :huh:
as hot as its reading, the rest of the pc should be melting LOL. maybe you could touch it while its on and see from a skin point of view. im sure that is incorrect.
i have the side of my case off and can see everything and once in a while touch mine near the power plug to see how hot is when i've had it running for long periods of time. its a maxtor and it can get pretty hot. is that HDD a maxtor by chance? if so, im sure its hot, but that number in the pic is astronomically high.
that's an ibm 120gxp.
you could try a different program. i like the "2506 minuties", though.
its an ibm 80 gig and i already touch it and i still have all my fingers it was a bit hot, but not that hot i think this program is full of bul****t...
when it comes to detecting the drive's temperature sensor, obviously. it's probably because it doesn't even have one.
SpeedFan would be an alternative program .. I use it and to be at he topic subject my hdd reached almost 50 degrees C ... ( it's normal ? ) - hot temperatures round here in this period ..
probably like mine. lol
btw, what prog is it?
actually the 120GXP 80gig has one (I have 2 of them) but its just reading it wrong. Best bet is go to http://www.hgst.com/hdd/support/download.htm and download Feature Tool. This is the company that handles the IBM Drives now. Feature Tool can enable certain things but it has a built in Temp Sensor Reader. I cant remember the temp of mine buts its pretty cool. My system runs cool anyway at 75 degrees farenheit system and 77 degree's farenheit processor. If u ever do a format use the Drive Fitness Test as a low level format utility
I think if it were that hot everything in the immediate area would be instantly vaporized
also what program are you using to show you that info?
Feels more like the "immediate" hemi-sphere of the Earth...
What's a "minutie" (minuty?) btw? And in hours?
