Hey, newly registered but have been a reader for a long time. Hope to be here a while too :).

Right, I am wondering if anyone knows of a decent hard disk temperature monitor (software). In particular, I need it to be one that can monitor the temp of a disk inside a USB2 enclosure. Not sure if this is even possible as I'm not sure if the USB enclosures support SMART (couldn't find it in the documentation).

I'm using 2 NexStar 3's and one of them gets much hotter than the other. Even while idling the 2nd disk is hotter than the 1st at high load. I don't really think its at a dangerous temp, but I wanted to keep on eye on it just to make sure.

If it helps: Vantec NexStar 3 (model no: NST-360-U2-BL)

Thanks in advance

good, we need more regulars ;)

anyway, to your question, i'd suggest SpeedFan or MBM5 (motherboard monitor). i think that's what you're asking for, right?

Try everest.
Although they stop their free version, you could try both versions, the old one and the newest.

Bah not hot at all, I've had a HDD running over 50*C and it still ran stable. Not using it now because I have a new SATA Hdd.

Well around this time of year the weather is usually about 5c max :) (I like it that way). Even in the summer average doesn't go much above 20.
then, you don't need about over heating again. mine cpu could go mad to ~70 celsius:mad: ( blowed using desk fan ), at hottest day. but at coolest night it would calm down to ~60 celsius at full load:???: . ( my cpu : prescott 2.8ghz, using stock fan, running this for a year now. )
