    I have the 7200.10 500GB 7200RPM Seagate Drive in my iMac in the sig, its operating at 58º celcious!!! seagate says 5-55º is normal, but its NEWER drives have a 60º maximum, when listening to music, my HD heats up to 58º (137º F), never higher than that. Is it safe? Is the 7200.10 considered a "new" series?

    Exact Model number is ST3500630AS
