Your HDD temp is fine. The faster drives tend to run warmer. I dont see any problems with your HDD running at that temperature.

I guess I am just use to seeing 10K Drives run at 45-50C :)

The drives should be warm to the touch but not burning :)

As long as you cant make breakfast on your HDD, you should be fine :)

The cooler is jsut added insurance.

I just get an 80mm fan, use a chrome wire finger grill and just let it sit on top of the drive. the grill lifts the fan a bit off the top of the drive, so the air can actually move.
