    YES you need to worry. Get a hdd cooler and install it, this will increase the life / reliability of your hdd.

    after how much usage/data transfer ur getting this temp.?
    because my HDD went above 50 just once when the transfer was close to 200GB,but after that it receded..and it stays in 40-45 range

    @pradeep...man all of my PSU output cable are consumed by 2 optical drives,systrem fan,HDD etc.
    any workaround for installing HDD cooler???

    Clean ur cabinet first, and provide ventilation by installing some extra fan!

    open ur cabinet if possible work in a room where a/c is or atleast buy a small fan so that it can keep ur hd cool

    well i idid one funny thing i applied the processors compound on hdd i mean on top of it not on circuits
    and to my surprise earlier it had 35 c but after the temp was not more than 27 c

    try it be careful not to aply on the seagate sticker or u will damage ur warranty

    just one thing
    how this software mesures the temp of HDD
    i mean where r the sensors for HDD located
    and why the HDD manufactures are not providing these knida utlites
    i mean every mother board manu is providing the same with there MB
    i also D/L demo of this software but coudnt understand the working
    my MB has seonsors (OI 865GBF and ita utility) but where are the sensors of HDD are located as samsung website is nt providing any information in this matter

    The sensor is in the ATA chipset of the harddisk, My HD stays at 36~40C in summer, & in really highusage, like copying files, DV copying it reaches 42~43, but never over 45

    I think you mean power supply to the cooler. If so, why not use a simple splitter, which is cheap.

    If it is correct, then the age of miracles is not over.
    Somebody may explain how the thermal paste which is meant to transfer heat from one metallic surface to another can do such wonders to a HDD.

    i have two drives...
    1. SATA 160GB - 45-47c
    2. SATA 250GB - 49-52c

    maybe it has something to do with PATA/SATA ??
