Considering the small size of the case, I would say that's normal for a Dell.

Yea but I think that they should do something. That is why my HD is always on fire.

if you mean your HD is on top of your CPU then no it isnt, you need to put it back in the cage it was in (lol, i spelled cage, kage )

there was another guy who had the same problem on here, said his HDD fell out of the cage and was just sitting on top of his HSF. must be a common problem

Oh, the drive is literally sitting on top of the CPU and not in it's cage? Now that isn't normal. I thought you meant the drive was installed so that it hangs over the processor.
