your hard drive has to have the S.M.A.R.T. feature, check to see if your harddrive has this feature.

Maybe this line needs to be changed for different HD's.
HDD_Temp_ID = 194

add this line in your evox.ini under [MISC]

EnableSMART = Yes

and then use <Temp3> in your skin file.

S.M.A.R.T
Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology

I found limited info about this, including some of these links:

http://support.wdc.c...lg/disclaim.asp
QUOTE
S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a diagnostic method originally developed by IBM for their mainframe drives to give advanced warning of drive failures. Based on this diagnostic Compaq announced a diagnostic which operated with a number of different disk drive manufacturers. These products were submitted to the ATA/IDE standards committees and the resulting standard was named S.M.A.R.T. Today all major hard disk drive manufacturers support S.M.A.R.T., including IBM, Western Digital, Maxtor, Quantum, Seagate, and Fujitsu.

It seems that all drives by now should have this included, maybe we can get team evox to release some info about the HDD_Temp_ID line. wink.gif

my 120GB Samsung (5400rpm) shows around 260 F.
..that seems a little hot. tongue.gif

obviously something needs to be adjusted.

I didn't even know HDs had a built in temp probe. cool stuff!

Maybe we should compile some sort of list of xbox hardware version, hdd manufacturer & part number (maybe manufacturing date too?) just to get some sort of idea as to what this is? of course, a little more info about HDD_Temp_ID would help tongue.gif

all my info except hdd part # which is WD800BB-00CAA1 and mfg date, Oct. 16, 2002, is listed in my sig.

btw, my <Temp3> shows N/A.

**Edit

Just a follow up. I just decided now to mess around with the HDD_Temp_ID value of 194...

with a value of 1, I get 0.0 C, 3 I get 191.0 C... if I find any other interesting values, I'll post my findings...

Alright, I promised results...

Here's what I have so far... yeah I know it isn't much, but it's a start. Its getting pretty damn boring changing a number, opening a program, IGR, seeing the new value, repeat as necessary... so I only tested up to 23. Note, not all numbers 1-23 are listed in the list, any that aren't listed showed N/A as a result.

1st column = HDD_Temp_ID value, 2nd column = <Temp3> result

1 - 0.0
3 - 191.0
4 - 116.0
5 - 0.0
7 - 0.0
9 - 34.0
11 - 0.0
12 - 116.0

Out of all that, my only promising bit of data is the value of 9 showing 34.0 C initially. To test this the only why I know how other than a thermometer, I started playing Time Splitters 2, which is on the HDD, and then I IGR'd back to the dash and the temp didn't change at all. Mind you I only played it for a couple minutes, but still, the HDD was in use, therefore generating heat.

Well, just having let it sit for a few minutes trying other values and typing this post, I went back to 9 from another value just to see if something changed, and voila! 35.0 C. By touching the top of the drive, it feels warm, but I can't be 100% certain about 35 C.

I left the Xbox off over dinner, and I just came back now and turned it on. Still shows 35 C even after having been off for 30 minutes or so. To me that doesn't look too promising, but I know nothing about the heat dissipation inside an Xbox, or a HDD either for that matter.

I know from watching the MB & CPU temps, they go up from 35 & 40 (respectively) right away as soon as I turn on the box and then sit at about 45 & 50 (respectively) after having been on a while or having played a game.

For those of you who had this work right away with the value of 194 and a reasonable <Temp3> output, does the temp fluctuate slowly? Rapidly? At all? Or does it just stay constant no matter what you're putting the HDD through?

I guess that's all for now. If anyone knows more about this, by all means...

Thanks!
