Hard Disk temps on silenced PC's - Page 2

post #16 of 19
Hmm, outside surface temp? Where is the temp diode read by S.M.A.R.T actually located? Could it differ between HD manufacturers?

SMART sensor placements differ, usually on main pcb, sometimes outside surface.

They are often very inaccurate and should almost never be used as a measure of disc temps. See spc forums for readings that are over 30C off.

A good measure is your hand. If its much warmer than your hand and you are afraid to touch it, you are more than likely running way too hot (it may work, but you are running a sifnificantly elevated risk of data loss or total failure).

The silencer 80mm fan is not the quietest 80mm fan out there. Check out www.silentpcreview.com and their forums for a lot of info on fans and alot of other silencing products and DIY methods.

how about a little handy work and mod the case so it fits 120mm fans. they spin slower but push more cfm because of their larger size. the noise of the fan, at that point, is attributed to the amount of air being pushed and not the whine of the fan's bearing. You can also 7v the fan, too.
