HDD temp

#2
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.

when it comes to detecting the drive's temperature sensor, obviously. it's probably because it doesn't even have one.

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 :D

also what program are you using to show you that info?
