New HDD, are the temps too high?

Hello there hardware experts

I just got a new hard disk today. Are the temps alright or too high? If its high, how do I improve it?

Images from Speccy and Acronis which has something to say there.

Thanks everyone!

Is this an internal HDD?

What happens if you run it with the sides taken off the case? Do the temps go down?

(FYI: I am away from home and stuck with the world's worst internet connection. I can disappear at any second!)

If the temps don't drop with more air in the case, then I would next suggest running WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics, just to rule out a bad reading by Acronis.

If the HDD is no good, then you should have that report anyway for RMA.

Temp doesn't look too hot compared to my old setup, also, the sensor could be bad. I had a drive reporting a high temp and it was cool to the touch.

I haven't opened the case, but I'm running the diagnostics.

Normally its 44 but since that thing is running, its on 48

I had fans sucking air across my drives in the pic above and my current case has a large fan blowing across them.

Is there any fan blowing across your drive? If not, is there provisions for mounting a fan that can blow across the drive?

Well there's no space for inserting a fan near the drive
