So, I just bought a WD RE3 1TB for my rig (yes it's enterprise, but was cheap and works perfectly fine). But I'm curious if these temps are good or do I need to take some action:

When idle: 45 C/113 F
Under load for 30 minutes straight: 50 C/ 122 F

Room temperature is 30 C/ 86 F.
Thanks in advance!

Edit: Enterprise HDD isn't something I need to worry about right? I could return it, as I've only had it for a couple of days.
 
I don't have a ton of drive experience, but the environment operating temps of that drive are rated as 0c-60c, so I think you should be fine.

Its never a bad idea to make sure you have fan(s) blowing air over your drives.

Well, It's a Dell Optiplex 390... Not a good case when it comes to airflow.
