The disks in my myth box at home run at ~ 40C:

pvr-martin ~ # for i in /dev/sd?; do smartctl -a $i | grep 194; done
194 Temperature_Celsius  38
194 Temperature_Celsius  37
194 Temperature_Celsius  38
194 Temperature_Celsius  40
194 Temperature_Celsius  41

There's no significant differentce to the Seagate 750GB Disks I'd ben using previously; all disks have (slow) drive fans making sure there's adequate airflow. The disks at work sit in a HP Proliant Box and run at < 30C in a cooled server room.

Bye, Martin
