I just defragmented the drive and it rose to 38c. It is 75f here today with the windows in my house all open as well. As far as the conflicting reviews go, my guess is the location of the enclosure in the case as well as case airflow are a big factor. In my case I do not have a front fan, but the Ev...

I don't think I have software that monitors drive temps. If someone could post back and help me out it will be appreciated. It would be nice to know those temps and have info for zeta as well.

I also have the Scythe quiet drive. A WD3200KS is going in it. It also will be placed on foam at the bottom of the case instead of in a drive bay. I have no idea how well it works or how the Western Digital sounds yet as I am starting the build today(my first computer build, partially inspired by co...
