SSD Crucial BX100 250GB : wrong reported SMART temperature

Recommended Posts

I just swapped my system SSD from a Sandisk Extreme II to a Crucial BX100 and I did noticed that temp is read correctly in Scanner's SAMRT detail window (31°C) but is wrongly displayed in Scanner's main windows (0°C).

The screenshot was made with version v BETA under Windows Server 2012 R2.

I have just dicided to simplify my setup and give a test to Windows 10 as my server machine rather than running Server R2.

Under Windows 10 with the same Scanner version I face the same issue : 0°C reported

I'm not surprised that it didnt' work.


Specifically, the issue here is that there are two ways the drive reports it's temperature. SCT (which is what the problem is) and SMART. SCT is newer and "is supposed to work better" than SMART. But clearly that isn't' the case.  Basically, we need to disregard SCT temp if it's 0C, and use SMART in this case.


Alex is aware of the issue (I talked to him directly about it), and we hope to get to the issue soon.
