    i downloaded a program called speedfan as roscco suggested, and all it says on the readings page is
    HD0:38 degrees celcius
    it seems to go between 38-40 degrees Celcius

    is that ok, or is it to hot?

    could be lower, but it is definately well below the maximum opertaing temp...(probably 75-80 degrees )

    what you really need to worry about is CPU temp...what is that?

    not noisy, and cooler? impossible...

    canuk, i guess your motherboard doesn't have a sensor...

    touch the heatsync with your finger. you should be able to touch it and not have your finger "automatically" pull away from it.

    You can buy hardware temp probes. The lcd display goes in a 5.25" drive bay (some i guess can go into a 3.5" too) and a "probe" plugs into it and u stick it in the heatsink.

    bad temps for HardDrives are above 55'C for Maxtors.

    Get a hard drive cooler they are really good my temp was 55'c now it is 22'c

    Yes, hd coolers are a very good buy. Cheap and lower temps dramatically.

    Canuk,
    Open up SpeedFan>click on "configure">click on " temperature" and you'll see what (if any) sensors are available on your board.

    Just check the boxes next to them and see what info pops up.
    Obviously wrong temps ( -47 seems to be popular) just mean that there is no sensor.
    If the only read you get is your HDD, then SpeedFan is useless to you.

    There is a standalone app called HDDTemp that can read just your SMART values...
