I just purchased a brand new WD Elements 10TB (WDC WD101EDAZ-11Y7KA0 10000.8 GB) and it is running at 54c. I have 9 other drives (internal) that range from 31c to 41c. From my years of experience 54c is danger zone as far as hard drive temps go.
Is this standard for this model?
It also makes a slight thump sound about every 5 seconds. You can feel the thump also.
Some people may not even notice but to me it is annoying.
Is this standard for this model also?
Thanks in advance.
