Where is your computer placed? Is there adequate air flow throughout the case? How old is the hd and comp, as well?

Why is the thread title called CPU help but your asking for HDD help?


You could buy a HDD fan, also make sure you have good airflow through your case

a normal hdd should run fine without fans unless you are overclocking stuff. If the ambient case temperture is pretty low, your hdd should be fine.

i believe that hard drive temps are normal up to 40 Celsius. I used to get 45 and I bought this vantec hard drive cooler and now i get 33 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835888105

if your having temp problems get this

and download everest from lavalys.com and tell us your hard drive temps
