So as long as it is around 35-50c it should be fine. | Report abuse keytthom August 14, 2010 2:44:21 AM ^ +1 so Long as your case has good cooling, it should be fine, there really is little need to buy a *HDD* Cooler. | Report abuse cjl CPUs Authority August 14, 2010 4:32:50 AM Realistically, just about anything from 25-45 is pretty good. 50 isn't terrible either. I'd start to be concerned both below 20 and above 50, since reliability suffers both when it's too hot and when it's too cold.
