Temperature Critical.

My HDD Health window of late opens saying 'Temperature is over critical!It is 46 degrees C. What is a man to do?

alot of things you could try to stop the heat rising, a new case with better airflow, more case fans ones covering the h.d.d would obviously be the best, well you could even take the side panel off for a quick fix.

46 isnt really critical, my cpu gets as high as 54C when im running 3dapps so i wouldnt worry about it. Try raising the alarm temperatre to 55 or so

Thanks guys for posting , I guessed from previous threads that 46 wasn't really too critical a temperature however it still concerns you somewhat when your PC tells you this in the form of a warning window.I believe that there was a free software out there , dont know when or where I saw it , that allowed you to speed up your fan , does anybody know of or remember such a program and if so is it a good idea or not?
