    Highest HDD temperature that wouldn't damage it

    Just wondering what the highest temperature a HDD could stand, if it is in constant use, but for it to be safe to use.

    Optimum is around 30-38c-ish, so I'm guessing 45c maybe 50c?

    Most drives will takke 60c, but if your Hd is that hot you have a serious airflow problem.

    It's just for a case mod I'm doing, I'm trying to keep it as quiet as possible, but my main worry is the heat caused from the HDD's.. I'll just have to test it for a few days and see how they go.
