i was wondering how hot is too haot for a 7200RPM hard drive

currently i have two (specs listed below) and they are running at 38 and 36 degrees celcius is this hot or is it normal?
i do have a 80mm fan in the front of my case which blows right across them do these temps warrant a hard drive cooler? or am i stressing to much? :tazz:

38 degrees is no hotter than the normal human body temperature.

If 38 degrees was considered too hot, nobody would be able to use the computer in the summertime. My processor, MB and HD got up to 54, 47 and 45 respectively at their peaks last summer.
