My apologies if this has already been discussed....
I have just purchased the Hitachi 5k160 PRM HDD. Prior to installation, according to Temperature Monitor my idle CPU temp was 51-56c and the HDD senor was between 33-37c. After having the drive installed my idle CPU temp has risen 10c (64-70c) and the HDD temp varies from 41-44c. I know I'm just not getting it.
Should the installation of this HDD raise the temp of the entire unit that much?
I'm a little frustrated at the moment and would appreciate any insight.
