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.
