127 is pretty "nominal". I don't recall seeing any posts indicating anyone had a problem that they could conclusively attribute to heat at this level.divenut1 said:I recently noticed my week old HR20-700 was running at 127.
I've been having numerous BSOD events...family has been unhappy with this after the R-15 mess. I put the unit up on two VHS tapes and the temp dropped 5 degress almost right away. Added a small fan on top nothing like what you guys have been talking about and it's now running about 104 - 107. I'll post a more after a while.
That said, I'm temperature retentive. I'm interested in the long term, and for that, cooler is better (short of outright frigid). I use a 5" equipment fan with my own speed control on it. My temps run 102 +/- 2 degrees or so.
I've never had a BSOD, but I would not claim temp has anything to do with it. I just like my stuff to run cool. Old habits die hard.
