Default HDD running very hot

Hi

I built this system about 3 days ago, these are the specs

Core i7 930
Coolermaster Haf 922
XFX 850W Black Edition
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
EVGA GeForce GTX 480
Samsung 2494HM 24IN Widescreen LCD
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA3 6GB/S
Adata Gaming Series 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 9-9-9-24 1.55v - 175v
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64BIT

My HDD seems to be running very hot

I am not sure whats up with this but it seems its a bit loud, I am not sure if WD blacks are like this or is it a faulty drive

This is a new build, any ideas how to test the system or tweak the setting, I didn't OC yet

can you touch the HDD physically, it will give you a good impression on temps
98oC like dangtx said is not possible unless the drive is actually burning inside your case :D

you can always contact WD to see what they have to say about that screenie.

I have the same drive and they are a little louder than some drives because they are a performance drive, but less loud than my old Seagate 500GB. As for the temperature Hardware Monitor shows 43C on Assembly for my drive but there is no Drive temp as in your pic? My PC is in my wall unit so ventilation is not as good as out in the open so something seems wrong really wrong with your temp, try using another program like HD Tune it's a benchmarking program but it will also show the temp of the drive.

Edit: Got twice LOL. and like the others said touch carefully 98C will be hot if true.

Sounds like a stuck or broken sensor to me. I'd contact WD to ask them about it but potentially defective hard drive or sensor in your hard drive detecting temperature

cpuid has never been reliable imho.

Touch the drive.. if it burns you its hot. If its warm its fine.

Concerned? Give em more airflow.

Not for me, CPUID HW shows both assembly and airflow for my desktop and laptop. What's weird is the assembly temp! OUCH that's HOT!! I'd have to agree with Arinoth about it being a stuck or broken sensor, so best to contact WD about it.

Its actually cool when I touched it, I touched my 480 GTX when after a gaming session and it gave me a nice burn lol, I think its weird, when I start CPUID HW it doesn't show anything, I leave it on for a while then it finds the HDD
I found the assembly temp which is at 90+ to be weird, its always at that temp
A weird question. I found a sticker on all my item boxes saying warranty void if removed and it had some numbers on it, all of them were identical in layout, does this mean I should keep my boxes for the warranty or is it NCIX RMA stuff?
any suggestions?

There are two warranty stickers. The one on the box that all look like the same are from NCIX for RMA purposes. The regular barcode/part number/serial code that is printed directly on the card board is for RMA purposes with the respective companies. Unless you bought the NCIX free return to RMA i dont know if manufac or NCIX will be cheaper to get it replaced
