My HDD is hot!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I just got my new HDD I decided to try HGST DeskStar 4TB NAS and I found it very quiet but when I am doing surface scan I found the drive become very hot so I run hardware monitor software to see the temperature and found it at 51c

I should mention I live in a hot country, my other old drives WD Black and Seagate read 43c and 37c respectively so is my HGST has a problem or it is normal to operate at that temperature with HD tune surface scan ?

I placed a fan now and the temp is 37c but I had to place the fan above the hard drive, no other place to mount .

Impossible question to answer, because you haven't said how you've mounted or cooled the drive. I'd expect that Deskstar NAS would run quite warm as it's a 7200rpm 4-platter unit.

I run 2x4TB Deskstar NAS in a Synology DS213j. One drive runs at 39C and the other at 36C.
