No, the disk will definitely be warmer. The system temperature
is sort of the mainboard temperature.
Under Linux you can use hddtemp to find out about the disk
temperature. Under Linux and Windows you can try the smartmontools,
they list the temperature-field and usually get it right too.

... Afair the optical path length changed both due to increasing temperature stretching the fiber, and a change in the quartz glass itself, which worked in the opposite direction. ... I gather the above is with respect to the question of whether concurrent data transfer from/to the existing multiple heads on a disk arm assembly might be feasible (while sticking with a single head per platter surface, since simple geometry tends to require this). ... If air flow between platters is negligible, this adds time to warm-up and cool-down periods, during which heat will presumably work its way through the platter stack resulting in significant temperatures differentials between outer and interior members (and consequent track-radius variations within a nominal cylinder) until everything stabilizes. ...
