    Narcissists need not apply. After adding two Samsung F1s (750GB), my temperature has shot up 5 degrees. I usually run around 30c but now it's 35/37celcius.

    I also have two AAKS 500GB in the other bays but I've ran 4 (AAKS's) since I bought it but the Samsungs really surprised me. Oddly enough, iStat reports the WDC hotter than the Samsungs.

    EDIT: sorry if there is fuzzy logic there. I had previously ran 4 WDC AAKS which iStat reports as running hotter than the Samsung so I don't understand how replacing two WDC with cooler Sammy's could yeild higher temps. I will however retract my previous posting as it seems the temp are back to 30s after idling a bit. So temps are more or less kosher.

    I'v recently added another two Samsung 500GBs, thats now three Samsungs and a Western digital. I can't remember my average temp before, but the fans seems to be running faster now (louder) and my temp at the moment is 47ºC :(

    What numbers are the fans at? I'm trying to think off the top of my head but I think mine are 599rpm for the CPU and 800rpm for the harddrive; again, more or less the same before the Samsungs. Also apply the new ATI graphics update which seems to have deadened the noise.

    CPU: 499
    PCIe / HDD: 499
    Rear Fan: 599
    Power: 599

    Temp: 47ºC

    I blew out a lot of the dust today so its running a bit quieter than usual, but I seem to have an extreme dust problem here, it gets clogged up enough to make a difference in under a week!!

    I'm currently encoding a video in handbrake from one superdrive, ripping a dvd simultaneously from the lower superdrive in XP via VMWARE, and have safari and mail open:

    Pretty good load on the system...

    My temps and fan speeds (manually adjusted) are attached!
