I don't know, 55/56 seems a bit high, even if they are Seagates. According to this the max for barracuda's are 60c. And I'm quite sure that's with a heavy load... http://www.seagate.com/docs/pdf/data...da_7200_10.pdf. Now does he have barracudas? But...

BTW I have Western Digital drives and they don't go over 35! And I do some intensive stuff like photo editing as well as gaming. Here's my temps....

My two cents.
you are right mate , they are hot and as we know hard drive temps are often ignored and can cause all sorts of problems if they get too hot , but its within its opererating range maybe a little ubove but nothing to get concerned about id say.

If one drive was getting hot then you could put it down to possibly a faulty drive but as they are both getting hot it must just be a high ambient , possibly also the case sits the two drives too close together , a well placed fan would sort it out if its that much of a worry

Yeah I would aggree that since both hard drives are running around the same temps it may indeed speak to case cooling. And yes, a fan or two might help.

BTW If a CPU's max temp is 100 would you be comfortable running it at 90? After all it is within range


Just a thought

i wonder why my card wouldnt come with a heat sensing unit anyway the overdrive detects the temps i would figure my card kinda being up there it would have something a little special but i guess not

You card does have a temp sensor. Just because speccy doesn't show the readings doesn't mean the card doesn't have a sensor. Have you tried GPU-Z
