    Thumbs up [RESOLVED] SSD temperature report is high

    My Win8 OS is located on an OCZ Vertex 3, 128GB SSD. Various temperature checking applications are reporting a temperature around 128 C. When I first saw that, I opened the case and put a finger on the drive. It was not warm at all. My guess is that the SMART reprting function is giving a false reading. Is there any way to check this?

    Vertex 3 does not have any temperature sensor.

    Additional note,
    Considering that solid state drives do not have any moving parts,
    Not aware of any consumer solid state drives with temperature sensors.

    CPUs, GPUs, (etc.) also do not have any moving parts.

    Thank you. I suppose the temperature reporting apps that I have used go full scale when they don't see a value. Curiously, Speccy gives a temp of 24C for my Kingston SSD. Maybe that one (newer) sends out a SMART temp or even one that just keeps the software happy.

    You're welcome.

    As to the temperature reading of the Kingston SSD,
    They may have just entered a random number into the SSD, just like OCZ did.
