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.... Attachment 92158
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
