I have 3 hard drives inside my Antec Sonata III 500 case. I have 1 Seagate 7200.10 250GB hard drive, a Samsung F3 1GB drive, and a 500GB seagate 7200.10 hard drive. All 7200rpm
I have an external 2GB Samsung 5400rpm drive.
I'm finding that the 250GB seagate consistently sits around 50-55 C when the cover is on, when I take the case cover off, it hovers around 50. The 1GB Samsung and 500GB Seagate sits around 41 w/ cover off, and 45 w/ cover on.
The external sits around 40 consistently.
Normal heating at cooling in my house, temp kept at 72F or below.
Are these internal temps too high for my drives? I'm thinking about getting a bigger case with better airflow bc of it. Thoughts?
