Hard Drive Temperature
I have an older 450 mhz Celeron machine I am using as a router/file server/print server/. It has a new Western Digital 120gig HD. I noticed the power supply fan keeps going on and off every few seconds and so I opened it up. The power supply is cool and the air coming from the fan is cool. The CPU has a fan mounted on it and it too is cool to the touch. However, the top of the hard drive is cool whereas the bottom is extremely hot. I switched the power mode on in the BIOS to suspend the HD after 1 minute of inactivity but that doesn't seem to have helped.
Is this normal?
