I have 3 HD's(2xSATA 1 IDE)The SATA HD's have always been to hot to touch(until I fitted a fan cooling them)before then they were showing as 47C.My system is on 24/7 and I use Dtemp to monitor their temps.Presently they are showing 37C/37C on SATA's,33C on IDE.I would check out the possibility of fitting a fan to cool your HD,as thats a bit high.Running the HD(s) at a high temp will shorten their life span,and could lead to noise from their bearings prematurely.

The strange thing is it seems to go up when its idle after finishing a game GTA San Andreas it was showing 41 then when idle it had gone up to 50 again
Any ideas

Are you sure it is the HDD temp and not the Graphics card ?

It sounds more like the GFX card to me.

Will depend on type of motherboard / CPU / ambient temp / amount of fans and how much work the PC is doing.

Some machines speed up the on board fans as the PC works harder and so more air flow acrss the board and drives. Therefore cooler when working

Mine P4 using Everest to monitor is showing CPU 57 motherboard 50 and 45 on the harddrives although I'm hardly using the machine.

Its a Dell seems that there HDD do run hot but my Medion HDD only showing around 33, so was a bit concerned as it was running at 50, might get some fans to install on the HDD
