What PSU do you use?

Have you tried clearing the CMOS?
Does your HDD have enough air? Have you tried changin the SATA cable?

How is your HDD S.M.A.R.T. status?

Fragmentation of files will make your hard disk work harder and it may result to more generation of heat, try to defrag it. My defrag application of choice is mydefrag. I must say though that most HD's don't reach that temp just because of fragmentation, is it noisy? My other guess is the parts are already failing and it might die soon.

My guess would be - defect SATA cable. That's why I asked these questions earlier.

lets go with the easiest thing first, leave the side of the case off and run your computer, and it starts reading 50 C feel how hot the hard drive is first, could be a case of a temp sensor gone bad.
