I got 2 WDs in RAID0 and I wish to know if anyone foudn a program that can monitor the drive temps? I used to have one of the two drives monotored in regular SATA mode, but now it's complicated as the system reports RAID STRIPE as a single drive. I remember when I plug my 80GB that I also loose temp monitoring for my SATA drive also. I think most programs that monitor HDD temps really don't have a clue.

actually they are spot on as almost every drive has SMART enabled with a thermal chip. problem is only high end server raid controllers will monitor temps on their drives..well as far as i know anyway.

Well I guess nvraid doesn't really care then? Probably only has 1 temp monitor in the thing? I dunno really. MBM5 doesn't have anything concerning raid setups... I'll look more.
