I'm using HwInfo to monitor the temps. The HDD is an external one. On the Black Panther system (see system specs below avatar) the external HDD temp would be in the high 40's and the Intel SSD in the low/mid 30's. On the Bengal system the same external HDD would be in the low/mid 30's and the Sandisk SSD in the high 40's. Makes no sense. The external HDD is always in the same place, with the same storage stuff in it, there's no reason for it to get so much warmer when connected to my newly built system? And why is the SSD of the new system getting so much warmer than the SSD of the old system? If anything, the case of the new system has a much better airflow. And finally, is it safe and normal for an SSD to reach 48 degrees? Would you suggest I move it to be right in front of the intake fan or is it irrelevant? Thanks.
