    My hard drive fan idles at 1600 with nothing else going on, the gpu or processor (not sure which one, I'm not home) fan also runs like 1500, is this normal?

    i guess they are alright the i5 runs hotter then the core2 duo so the fan speeds will be a bit higher too , but pure fan speeds say absolute nothing if noted without the temperatures
    i mean there is a difference
    if your fans would run at 1600 rpm with a harddrive temp of around 50 celsius or if they would run at 1600 at a harddrive temp of 70celsius or above
