TechyV People,

I installed a software that monitors my computers internal temperature that includes HDD temp, CPU and motherboard. 

The software is called speedFan 4.43. As you can see below, HD1: is running @ 51C compared to my western digital's 49C.

HD0: Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB

HD1: Seagate 1B barracuda (ST31000528AS)

is this normal for a large capacity hard drive?

Just don’t worry it is quite normal. Seagate has mentioned 45 to 55c for this hard drive. So I think 51 are good. Just don’t worry about it. May be the limits in this software are different. May be the software maker has defined a temp of 51 as high but it is quite ok. So just don’t worry but make sure it doesn’t rise above 55.

SpeedFan is great trustful software and generally indicate correct temperature. This normal situation and bigger Size hard disk generate more temperature as usual. But your both hard disk temperature little bit high, but don’t wary and try to add some casing fan to cool your system.
 
Good luck
