Default Re: hardrive at 51C

Yeah, that's a bit hot for a HDD, their usual maximum temperatures are around 55 Celsius. I'm pretty sure all Maxtor's have that maximum. And, the hotter it gets, the better chance of a failure, so I'd cool that baby down so it doesn't go out on you.

If you want to cool your HDD, try this. I have it on mine:
