can damage any of your components, including beloved harddrives.
Unless you regularly back up your harddrive, a lot of information
can potentially be lost if a failure occurs. Harddrive
coolers plug into the CD-ROM bay and nuzzle around your
harddrive effectively cooling it, there by preventing any heat-related
failures. While in general this will not increase airflow to
speak of, but having cooler components all around can lower
case temperature in certain situations.
Vantec Triple fan harddrive cooler mounts around SCSI and IDE
harddrives, in any 5-1/4 bay using supplied rails. The Vantec
uses three 40x20mm fans, flowing at 7.2cfm each. While alone,
7.2cfm isn't an impressive figure, when running together they
keep your harddrive cool and safe.
the person who doesn't want to take chances, Vantec also manufactures
the 'Ultimate' harddrive cooler. While louder than its less
powerful brother, it cranks 13cfm of air out of two 4500rpm
40x40x20 ball bearing fans. If you don't want to take any chances,
this harddrive will keep you sleeping well at night.
