I woke up this morning started pirriform's defraggler and just checked the health tab and there I noticed my HDD temp at 15 degrees Celsius indicated in red, I've heard before that it's not good for drives to be cold but now I want to know is it true and to what extent?

Well, the colder a piece of computer technology is, the faster and better it works. That is why people in hot places put water cooling or an aftermarket cooler on their cpu, so that it will be more efficient. So, this is a good thing

Do you have a house that's that cold? Otherwise it is probably a buggy temperature sensor.

Look at their specs eg http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=23719....
"There is a drive temperature vs failure rate chart on page 6, seen below. Drive reliability was best in the upper 30C's with the failure rates increasing dramatically below 25C."
