High temperature


#1

One of my drives shows a 7° higher temperature than the other while both are in use.

The question is why?

How do I know if the internal cooling nis working?

Dear fellow,

A MyBook (at least model WD5000C032) simply does not have internal cooling. Be careful with high temperature — it  destroys the unit. It happened to me with two MyBooks and I had to extract the hard disks from inside. Both were intact, thanks God. Instructions here: http://bit.ly/mybookstinks

Best energies from Rio!

thanks for the info.

I didnot know that they are missing active cooling.

anyway why the one has permanently 7-10°C higher temperature than the other while both are used same way?

is 52° HDD temperature corresponding to 23° room temperature?
