Wow, you sure it was 10c?
I have a bad sata cable, I think that's whats ****ed it up and why its hot.

The temp is now a normal 41c after pushing the plug firmly in.

The thing is that cable used to be connected to my raptor which I accidentally broke the socket on (easily done bad design) so had to use superglue on it

Theres obviously a bit of superglue on the contacts.
I have a nice sata cable somewhere with the safely clip on it but finding it ...
Meh, hot again

I'm loosing the will
