Is there a way for me to read the operating temperature of my HDD?

I recently replaced the standard HDD in my 20" Intel iMac with a new HDD that's 1T and runs at 7200 RPM...

Now I've read about high temperature causing HDD failures.

Also, I've seen software you can download where you can control the fan speed to help cool the HDD...Anyone heard of this? If so, should I download such?

Thanks,

I downloaded istat pro and my HDD is operating at 112 degrees F...the specs call for a range from 32 degrees to 140 degrees F...

should I still download a program to control my fans or just keep an eye on the HDD temp?

Temperature/fan control

Hello there:

Concurr in iStat Pro. Time ago I used a utility called Hardware something (I do not remenber well!) Fan control almost often is done via Firmware upgrades issued by Apple.:cool:
