Looks like it's already exceeded thresholds on 01 and 07.

It's a Seagate, isn't it? I am seeing new ones do that and affect the overall system performance. For now the fix is to get any other make.

If you are not having performance issues you can ignore it but don't trust it.

HEAT? The second link says the drive is out at 65C where as the maker only specs it up to 58C. May be why the 01 and 07 values took off?

Thanks for help

The temperature is reading at 47 celsius in the overall info of the hdd, although I will return it anyways.

I looked at the airflow temp again.

Under the current column I see 65C. If the drives are getting that hot, it could be why the values are climbing. Are they climbing?

Airflow was high at first

It was high at first, not it stays at 53-52 so that's nothing to worry about. Read error rate raised by 2 and seek error rate didn't raise but the raw value changed.

I did a bit of research though

And apparently the 01 and 07 values are always high for the seagates and it's nothing to worry about.

As to nothing to worry about.

Folk bring us their failing, dead or performance issue PCs. We have found the 01, 07 issue to matter. But remember we have a client that brought in the machine for issues so if the Seagate is not creating issues then you don't need to get it out of the system.

The thing that really irks techs that work this is that it may be fine one day and stay OK for weeks then the client in back at the shop. So we just won't install this brand for now. Too many returns.

PS. Edited for grammar.

Thanks for the clarification.

I will use this drive for a while and if it brings me any performance issues, freezes etc. I will try to update this thread.
