Hdd's very hot
Is it normal that my three internal 3.5" hdd's are very hot to the touch (90°C)?
I have been running an antivirus product on them for three straight days, so they have been busy. Also, I have a midi-tower with a lot of components in them.. so there's not much air to go around. I just have one 'AVC' fan in it; a small one.
PC case contents:
- three 3.5" IDE hdd's (Western Digital)
- GeForce 7300 GT 256 MB (no extra power plug, uses same PSU as everything)
- PSU for everything (Sweex 350 W)
One of the main problems is that the hdd's are all stacked up vertically next to each other. I don't know if that's ok. This OEM box originally came with one hdd, vertically mounted (it is hot aswell). But the other two are just dangling loosely about.. vibrating against the PC casing now and then. I have to fix that, which is hard, because of the limited space.
Is it ok for hdd's to be vertically mounted?
