Hi all, just joined the forums. I wanted to join a forum with people who have a lot of know how when it comes to computers, and someone recommended this site. Eventually I will wanna learn alot about computers as well, I wanna have alot of know how about computers but I just dunno where to start.

Anyway, the topic at hand is about my hardware's temperature, recently got a new HDD and its showing readings of 50c-52c, which doesn't look very good. I also had a look at other parts temperature readings but im not sure whether they are good, or whether I should be concerned so I came here looking for a second opinion.

So here are the reports I got from HW monitor

Sorry if it is a bit long, or makes no sense. I was expecting HW monitor to copy the details exactly as they were displayed on the program, but it seems like it didn't do that a tall. If that makes no sense to any of you then ill upload a screenshot of the actual program and what it shows

Cheers :)

You might want to upload a screenshot. I can understand this for the most part, but there are a couple of details that don't make 100% sense to me, so just upload a screenshot.

Thanks for the response :)  Here's the screenshot.

Your temperature seem fine for an OEM computer :)  I'm assuming there's no front intake which is why your HDD is showing temperatures a little on the warm side. However, they're nothing I would be too concerned of.
