    Today I buy the corsair 750D
    I set the hard drive on this case but they are too warm

    Now they are about 40 C

    My old case was the Raidmax Agusta and they were about 32 C

    That is kind of an issue with the 750D. The hard drive cages really restrict airflow. IMO, it would be better to have SP140 fans instead of the AF140 fans. The SP140 fans would do a better job of forcing the air through the restrictive hard drive cages.

    Of course drives at 40C have lower failure rates than drives at 30C...so maybe Corsair knows what they're doing...

    I think it also depends on ambient temperature also. Here in the cold, wet UK, we have relatively low temperatures, so my HDD rarely goes over 30c. I expect in certain areas of the world where the ambient temperature is higher, that HDD temp is probably fine.

    from where you get that temp?
    it may higher but it will be ok
    but if you want to get better temp just using better fan (higher airflow)

    I think as long as its under 50 don't worry about it.

    How about the "Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition" ?
