Default My Raptor temps are quite high... will this kill it?

My WD Raptor 160GB temps are reaching around 60C degrees!
(according to HWmonitor)

Is this a danger to its health?

Temperature is reaching 60C degree when I run HDD benchmarks
and when I format the littl' sucker.
Idles around 55C degrees

WD1600ADFS
Newegg.com - Western Digital Raptor WD1600ADFS 160GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives


This Raptor is in the top 5.25" drive bay of my Mini P180, which gets
almost no airflow.

Never seems to get temps below 55C and above 60C, no matter the environment...
(open air, with 2x30mm fans blowing on it, in a silencer box, etc.)

Actually, I suspect the Egg's listing is in error. WD doesn't even list a 160GB drive on their website.

@OP: You might want to consider how the drive is mounted and what kind of airflow its getting. Personally, 50 degrees is my own limit, and I much prefer around 40 degrees. The original raptors are definitely hotter than most desktop drives (VR's are actually much improved in this department), but I think they're maximum rated temp by WD is 55 degrees.
