    I tried, it wasn't hot enough.

    Wouldn't it blaze in flames if it really was this temperature? And for the record, this is just below 490 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Think you better
    a) check the drive.... does it sound 'rough' or is it actually V.hot ??
    b) check your air flow through the case - are all you fans working & is there a 'flow through' the case (front - sucking air in, back - blowing air out)
    c) Perhaps move the HDD to a different space to allow better airflow
    d) move some cables out of the way to improve it
    e) clean out the dust inside

    I have a similar HDD but it's nowhere near that

    It's not reading the sensor it thinks it is, it's not getting the value it thinks it is.
