    There really isn’t a definable measurement.

    Heat output is generally best assessed by looking at power consumption. As a drive that uses very little power will output less heat.

    See this site and use the dropdown at the top for a lot of test data that should meet your needs.

    Make sure to read the explanations of what all the tests mean as well.
