The JMicron HW RAID Manager has an option to display the "Disk Information" by activating the button "Advanced". Then you get the disk drive information reported by S.M.A.R.T. Within the HDD "SMART Information" window you can see the temperature value of the selected hard disk drive ("ID 194" / "Temperature"). But it is not clear if the value is °C (Celsius) or °F (Fahrenheit). Do you know which unit is used? Thank you in advance!

I downloaded the software to test it, but since I don't have RAID setup, the software doesn't display anything. However, for most applications, regardless of the region used, the temperature is always displayed in Celsius. For a Fahrenheit value, you should see slightly higher numbers. A temperature for a HDD should never be above 50 degrees. I also visited the official website, but didn't find anything specific.
