well the cpu seems fine unless its showing the temperature at idle, but anymore and i you should consider a new cooler.

All though the hard drives will still work, it wont do them any good and they could fail for no apparent reasons soon or in maybe a few months.

Everything is normal except for that one hard drive. Man, both software shows the same thing leading me to believe that the hard drive may be experiencing some stress. How close are they apart from each other? Looks like you have two drives. Get a hard drive cooler off of Newegg. They work great. Theey just attach to the bottom by screws, then plug it in to an available 4-pin power molex and that's it.

Default Re: My wierd temps

1/. that cpu (if it is at idle) is waaaaay too hot

2/. the drives are too hot

3/. the drives in that pic are mounted upside down.

Can you show us a pic of your case from the side with the side panel off and also describe your case fan set up.

I'm betting you have minimal case airflow, a jumble of cable and a inefficient case fan arrangement. Whilst the hard drive cooler will lower temps to a degree that is like putting a band aid on a broken leg. Lets see if we can find the real cause of your temperature problems.

How do I get my temps for my Hard drives? When I use those programs like Speedfan it doesn't tell me anything on my hard drives. I have 3 Sata Hard Drives by Western Digital.
