is this too hot? I haven't seen it get over 50 Celsius. the drive is mounted under neath an intake fan so I thought it would be cooler. Would it run cooler if I mounted it at the top of the case near the DVD drives? I'm not familiar with dell if I'm not using a custom built PC I'm usually using Gateway/Emachines. the Dell XPS 400 case has the HDD slots on the bottom of the case near the intake fan but I was figuring since I don't have a floppy drive I could mount it in that area my harddrive is the 250GB Western Digital WDC WD2500JS-75NCB1
well so that didn't help when the computer is in use and the HDD is being used heat goes back up to 50 celcius so I guess I'll have to get some exhaust fans even though my 80mm intake fan blows cold air right over the surface of the HDD.
