HD0 Overheating? P6860FX

Okay, I dont know if I should be using another program, but I'm using SpeedFan to check my comp temp. It's showing everything fine except HD0 is at 58Degrees Celsius ( flame by it ). Is this normal? what should it be at? What should I do? Is HD0 Hard Drive?

SpeedFan is not 100% accurate and the flame symbol is 100% inaccurate (all it's actually doing is putting a flame symbol there when the temp reaches a certain user-defined temperature). 58 degrees is fine for a HDD.

It is? I have asked this question several times in the past. WD states 60C max for the drive, Hitachi states 55C max. 58C is a bit warm, no?

Why do these drives, when pushed, hit 55+C in the P68xx notebooks? There have been suggestions that there is a hot component near the drives that keep the drives hot under heavy use. My no use idle temps hang around 42C - 48C in a 23C room.

People using RAID lose the temperature monitoring function, afaik. Everest and HDTune agree on temp readings.

Right now my HDD's are running at 33 and 35 Celsius but after gaming or defragging the temps can get as high as 55-60 Celsius

Laptop has been running 3 hours with some 40G of file transfers; Everest shows 46 and 41C between both internal drives. Room is 23C, when doing huge file transfers, I kick the ceiling fan on which does a fine job keeping air circulating around laptop.
