    My hardrive crashed so I decided to go for an SSD so i could avoid any future problems with harddrive failure. However there are a couple of strange things that I have noticed. First the computer now freezes fairly frequently. I have noticed this especially when I leave the top up for long periods of time but it happens in other circumstances. According to iStat the temperature of the SSD is 32 degrees. I don't think that is possible but tell me if I'm wrong. Also it seems like the fans are running constantly even though I'm only using 2/3 of my RAM. Whats going on, what should I do. I've thought about just reseeding the drive. Oh also its a 120 gb OWC SSD and an '06 white macbook

    Go to system preferences -> energy saver -> unselect "Put the hard disk to sleep"
