thats really really hot for a hdd, and on the high end for the other two as well, but those depend on the parts. I suspect first your sensor is really wrong, there is no way you hdd is matching your cpu at 80 C.

First, download speccy http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/
or speedfan and get the right temps

Second if these really are your temps, get a an of air and clean everything out, probably dusty after 3 years, also move your system somewhere else and see if thats the problem.

Third if nothing gets better, take it to a repair shop or take the side of the case off to allow better air.


could we get better specs? good luck
