    I dun think so
    My C drive is idle at 29 and goes up to ard 35, with a Fan directly blowing on top
    My G however goes ard 35-40, but its a BT drive, so its always doing stuff..

    Are you asking a general question about computer temps? Or HDD temps? I'm confused by the vagueness of the question.

    If it's CPU temps: depending on whether you're on high OC, 45 idle is fine, especially if you're on stock cooler.

    If it's HDD temps: hot hot hot, better put a fan in front of it - low speed is more than enough.

    recently saw water cooling for harddisk. its extreme but really cool.

    idle temps are nothing. what's the load of that 45 deg idle cpu ?
