    Well, I once had a 7200 rpm WD without any cooling (3 years ago before I knew HD's could create heat) It was in my basement at the time, (68 degrees) and after a Windows install, it was borderline too hot to touch, I am going to estimate 130 F. Since then I have always had circulation passing through my hard drive areas.

    Now with even just a minute amount of circulation, my HD stays around 80-82F in a 70F room.
