Hello!

A 320Gb refurbished HDD that has OS in it runs at 38°C idle,

and a 1TB additional HDD runs at 40°C idle.

Both of them are installed together in the system.

 

Is that normal having different temperatures on multiple HDDs?

Those are very normal temperatures for hard drives.

 

It is normal for two electronics components to have different temperatures.

Very glad to hear that. 

 

Thanks for the kind reply.

As long as the drive temperatures are 50 Celsius or less...that's perfectly normal for hard drives.

 

If you run the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic on a drive and the temp is 50 Celsius or above...the diagnostic may (not necessarily) indicate a problem with the drive.  If I suspect that a drive temperature is possibly high, I just run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic because I think it's a better indicator of possible drive problems.

I'll surely do the hard drive diagnostics. Thanks for the advice Mr. Louis. Have a nice day.
