I searched for a similar question around the web, but I couldn't find anything. I have Lenovo G580 and I swapped the built-in Seagate 500GB hard drive for WD Blue 1TB. The thicker WD Blue drive fits just fine, but it's a couple of millimeter thicker. I'm worrying that since hard drive is positioned right next to the motherboard that the thicker drive will transfer more heath to the motherboard. Can this really happen, or am I just paranoid?
My current temperatures according to Speccy during light use (text editing) are: CPU: 46° MB: 45° C WD Drive: 38° C
I'm not sure, but I think that those are normal, since the drive fits into the hard drive bay, does it mean that the laptop can support it just fine? If the engineers thought that it couldn't support thicker drives, we wouldn't be able to install them, right?
Thanks for the help...
