we will be taking a look at the HD 200 Hard Drive Cooler from
2CoolTek. Many people overlook this fact, but the hard drive
can be one of the hottest parts of your system. Everyone should
have some special type of cooling mechanism for their hard drive.
Unfortunately most people donít have a cooler for the hard drive.
There is absolutely no reason not to get a cooler just for your
hard drive. They are easy to install, and they keep the drive
cooler. This allows the hard drive to last much longer, and
run more efficiently. Since the hard drive is producing less
heat when it is cooled, this also reduces overall system temperature.
Besides that, most hard drive coolers can be purchased for under
$30. A small price to pay compared to a new hard drive. So,
as you can see, there is not any reason to not purchase a hard
drive cooler. Besides increasing your current system performance
it can extend the life of your hard drive. Cooling your system
is one of the greatest things you can do for it, yet so many
people donít. I mean a good cooling setup for your system can
be under $50 and will save you hundreds of dollars in the long
run. After doing all this it also increases your chance of overclocking
your system =).
received the box that contained my HD 200 Cooler for review
and immediately opened it up. Everything was in the box that
was supposed to be. Cooler, Screws, Mounting Rails, and InstructionsÖ..what
no instructions? Nope, no instructions whatsoever were included
inside the box. I donít know what the company was thinking when
they decided not to include any instructions, in the box that
is. There are some limited ones on the box but those donít really
help. If you didnít know how to install the cooler you could
also look on the web page, but that is not much help when your
computer is ripped apart. I guess that no newbie to computers
will be buying this cooler due to the lack of instructions.
My case is not really Ďcrammedí but it doesnít have a whole
lot of extra room. All I had to do was remove my hard drive,
mount it with the rails and screws provided. Then I just snapped
the cooler in and connected the power to my hard drive bay.
I booted up my computer and everything worked fine. Installation
was a snap, I just wish there were some instructions.
