I have a Burly 5 bay PM enclosure with Hitachi & seagate sata drives within, what is the regular operating tempeture for drives, my lcd's on my drive tray say 84 F.

That is a wee bit cooler than we usually see, but well within expected. Normally high 80 and low 90s depending on ambient temperatures.

Not that I am real proud of these numbers but they are within operating specifications. My QS's 74GB Raptor runs at 33C or about 93 F and rarely gets warmer. ;)

Thanks both of you for that info, it was pretty hot in my room today and my drives were running at between 90F and 99F, at what temp should i start being concerned about overheating?

Yeah mine is 35C / 95F currently and end of my day. You should be fine. Cooler is better and I've been going to work on my room airflow a little. I am sucking warmer than needed air. ;)

Seagate's site says 0 to 60 C Check this.

Me too, my airflow is way to warm, we have no air conditioning in the house...yep it's time to get creative and somehow het some cool air running into the system.
