    Dear all,

    I wonder what really happens to my SSD (1TB Fusion Drive) when Im on windows 8. The SSD temp runs from 64*C to 58*C and vice versa. Dont know if its really hot or the sensor goes wrong.
    As I know windows only runs on HDD portion so what makes SSD hot?!
    Now when i log in to Mavericks the temp stand at 60*C and seems like never drop down. :-s

    This is just windows power management, as long as your SSD doesn't go above 80 don't worry ;)

    Could be the type of SSD installed, as long as the components don't go above 80 it isn't gonna cause damage :)
    If it bothers you, use smc fan-control or use iStat to control fans :)

    In Windows or Mac? If Windows, do you use HWMonitor and AIDA?

    As I google it and find, when fully stressed, SSD only consumes little over 1W.
    still does not come close to anything regular 3.5" desktop drives. And that is the main reason i dont believe monitor software. But why 80*C, from where you read this information?

    Regards.

    Thank for your very quick and clear reply, what is your room temperature?
    You're using a Samsung SSD, mine is Toshiba 128GB PCIe based. Maybe it makes difference.

    Hello Eric, Room temperature on average is 25C [ 20-27 C] and my iMac is 24/7 ON.

    SSDs should not overheat whatsoever. They are mostly affected by the heat produced by other peripherals surrounding it.
