  1. Hi there,

    I was wondering about the temperature of my HDD, i bought the computer 2nd hand, because frankly i cbf building my own one.

    Seeing as its second hand im guessing the HDD is prolly at least more than 5+ years old, is it safe that it be running at 40C idle??

    Also is 29-30*C a good temp for a computer this old, using stock cooling?
