I have a question...do Western Digital HD's usually get hotter thermally than other brands because I have one 40gb Seagate and this HD always seems to be running very cool, both have 7200RPM, so I would think they would be the same temperature. I used everest home edition and this is what I got:

1. Seagate 40gb 30C (86 degrees farenheit)- Used for games
2. WD 80gb 38C (100.4 degrees)- This has the OS, drivers, utilities, apps

I would think the WD temp would be damaging...but I don't know. I have a 80mm blowing.

I'd be very happy with those temperatures. My Seagate and Maxtor run at 48/50C.

Welcome to TSF:

I personally use the Thermaltake Hardcano model A1282 for drive cooling and I hold them in very high regard / their temps are more accurate then just softweare temp reports as they have their own physical temp probe to secure to the drive. My seagate 15,000 RPM drives stay around 29 - 33C even when working hard / like CD burning ~~ I'm not a gamer though so its possible to see another 3 or 4 degrees maybe ???????

regards

joe
