Scanner not reporting drive temperature for my Intel SSDs

edited May 2013 in Scanner
I have 2 Intel SSDs, one 60GB 330 Series and its using the Intel 330 Series SSD interpretation rules. The other drive is a 240GB Intel 330 Series SSD, but for some reason when I check the S.M.A.R.T. data it shows "Using non-manufacturer specific interpretation rules". I pressed update to see if it would change the interpretation rules to the 330 Series rules but it does not.

My main concern is that it is not reporting the drive temperature. Does anyone have any ideas as to why it's not reporting the drive temps?

I'm using version on Windows Server 2012 Essentials.

    Most likely reason would be that the drives don't have a temperature sensors...

    (Most SSD drives don't have that since they aren't particularly sensitive to high temperatures unlike mechanical discs with moving parts)

    Yeah, both of my OCZ drives don't report temperature. This is a normal thing for SSDs. Like henrik said, they're not as susceptible to temp changes...
  • I couldn't find any information about the drive having a temperature sensor. I found a document that showed the higher end Intel SSDs have temperature sensors but there was no info about the 330 series.
