Default Is this normal?

My hard drive stays between 97-99 degrees farenheit

It's a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 160 gig UATA/133

It's piggybacked on my Quantum Fireball HD

Im not sure, maybe you could find a forum for that harddrive brand and take a poll for "normal" operation temp.

Then if you don't know what "normal" operating temp should be, how can you say if it's high or not?
