How hot is too hot for a Hard Drive?
I'm not exactly sure of the temperature but my mobo was getting very warm so I popped open the case and everything seemed in order. I was poking around and I bumped the HD and it almost burned me. I then cautiously touched it again with the tip of my finger and it was indeed very very hot, but not hot enough to burn. I'd say by touch it had to be 60*C or hotter.
Case flow is good, ambient temperature is about 80*F. I'm not sure if this is a sign that my HD is about to go out or if it's just naturally that hot. Any info would be helpful.
