The only means to monitor HD temps, or any other temps that are not already designed into your mobo for monitoring is to obtain a "trick" case with those facilities. The only cases I'm aware of are the high-end Antec: P-160, P-180. With these cases your have available several temp probes that you can place anywhere you want and continuously monitor whatever.
sorry friend you are wrong. the p-180 does not have any built in temp monitoring features. i own one, i should know. also, you can monitor your hd temps on any mobo that supports S.M.A.R.T. monitoring.
to the OP, you can try speed fan. i know that it has the capability to read the hd temp from the probe in the hd itself. i use motherboard monitor but it has stopped being updated. there is another utility out there that will read all of the smart monitoring data off the drive. i cant remember the name off the top of my head, but i will look for you when i get home from work. im not sure if you really have to have the bios option enabled to be able to read the data. again ill look when i get home. if you have any questions about these, feel free to ask!!
edit: i just remembered that program was called smart monitor.
What's a good software to monitor my HD temp? I got a raptor drive and wants to see how hot its running. Thanks
Download the program "Everest", from Here - Than go to www.TorrentSpy.com or another BitTorrent website, download the full version, and use the keygen to get it full version. Or, you can buy it, but it monitors EVERYTHING on your PC, and I mean EVERYTHING.
