They are not Western Digital drives and they are not Green drives either.
They are White Label 1TB drives running at 7200 rpm, 16mb cache, SATA II.
The label on them says Mediamax and they are shipped in a bag in bulk.
No where on the label does it say anything about it being a green drive.
Lots of them have been sold new on ebay for about $60 new.
This is what i am seeing based on your model number(s)
If yours is not green drive it most likely would run very differently than a Green drive.
which would for sure run hotter than a Green… The green’s have a dynamic speed i believe but usually stay at close to 5500rpm i think. (WD is NOT telling too much on the speed’s on them lol)
I have a 7200rpm Black that replaced my Green and the black is hotter and noisier but rock solid performance wise (outperforms the Green)
my standard designed ATX case as most do have an intake at the front lower area.
mine has 4 80mm slots but holes for a 110mm to install inbetween centered in that spot.
so i installed one and modified the voltage / molex cable to give it 7 volts and it runs quiet
and keeps my drive a lot cooler. i have spent years doing experiments trying to get my temps down
and i will use ANYTHING material wise to get he job done. for example i have dropped 10 degrees
on my CPU by cutting up a 2L pop bottle and creating a coolair intake for it. Works awesome !
That is 1 small thing i have tons of fans that i add or remove and do experiments on and off depending
on what i want in the case i may change things up etc.
So do your self a favor and get case modding or even buy some… look at Tigerdirect or newegg etc
for premade case mod stuff.
Anyway my Black 1TB runs at about 35 degrees celcius (37 when i’m maxing our the cpu video encoding, like i’m doing right now)
Just get creative and try some stuff out to get your temps down. I got all kinds of stuff like voltage meters multiple wired heat probes, lots of materials etc but i found one of the most usefull is a piece of sewing thread that you can dangle around openings to see air flow (sucking or blowing etc)
this is a google cache page of the ebay drive i seen that matchs your model number…
