Just a general question: is one supposed to produce more heat than the other? I took my HP DC7100 SFF desktop, swapped the 80 GB SATA for a 250 GB IDE HDD and the IDE drive temperature sensor seems to be less than the previous SATA.
The generational differences in drive mechanics will predominate.
Anyway, the wattage should be printed on each drive.
