    My other two WD 320gb drives all register at 30-32degress.
    This is not where my OS is located.

    WDC WD2500JS-19NCB1
    Drive is less than a year old.

    Is this drive located closer to the CPU? Is it located "on top" of the other drives? Since heat rises, it may be due to this. I would invest in a small fan that can be placed on top of or under the HDD to act as a cooler to draw heat away from the drive.

    I have the Antec P180. http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=81800
    The HD's are nowhere near a heat source but themselves.
    I have 3 HD's parallel side by side on the bottom-front of the case.
    There are TWO fans running past keep them cool.
    One in the Intake right in front of them and one behind them sucking air towards the PSU. PS is on the bottom of the case as well.
    The cooling goes by ALL three HD's so I have no idea as to why only one of them is reading such a high temp.
    Help, pleaso. :)

    Are your other two drives SATA as well?

    52 to 54 degrees C. This is not any where's near a problem. I have two hard drives in mine and they both run that way. When they get to much higher then worry. It is normal for some drives to run cooler than others. wait until they get to 85 degrees C or higher then you get out the fire hoses.

    Yes, and they are all WD 320gb. 8mb and 16mb buffer.

    54degrees Celcius is not running hot?
    30degrees when compared to the other two drives?

    Over a 22degree differance, thats alot if you ask me, no?
    If this temp is OKAY then how do I decrease it and why is ait high to begin with?
    Any helpful response would be much appreciated.
    :)
