Maxtor SATA HDD Temp help

  Killo Bite 01:33 05 Jun 2007

touched my maxtor HDD underneath after being switched on for around an hours with the case side panel off and noticed its that hot to burn your hand. I know HDD's get hot but would this be Too Hot ?

There has been a problem with the machine freezing after a few hours of game play but i think that was because of heavy dust in the HSF of a P4 2.6 Skt 775 grill now cleaned out.

Is a HDD ok and very very high temps like I describe ?

Yes a HDD can burn your fingers

after being switched on for around an hours with the case side panel off

running with the side panel off IS BAD it will run hotter with the panel off. The air flow over the componets will be incorrect.

Speedfan is a great free utility for amongst other things monitoring disc and other temps. It is also small and fast. Gives SMART details on hard drives as well.
