I just purchased a 1TB Western Digital "Green Power" hard drive to put in an OWC external hard drive enclosure. Since the enclosure has no fan, I specifically chose the WD because it is designed to run a little cooler. The external drive's temperature is currently at 108 degrees, after 20+/- minutes of steady work. It idles at about 100 - 103 degrees in an ambient room temp of about 70-75 degrees. Internal drives are at 90-92. That being said, I'm worried how it will hold up during the summer. As it is an external drive, it doesn't have the luxury of case fans, to cool it down when it's temperature escalates. Does anyone know what temperature range might be the "danger-zone" for hard drives? Thanks in advance.
