Global Win was thinking of a name for this hard drive cooler,
they must have wanted you to think it was big, no I mean really
big, like massive. Hence the name that they chose: King Kong.
He is one of the biggest and most feared gorillaís in the movies.
Will this cooler be one of the biggest and most feared that
I review? Youíll have to read on to find out. First things first,
installation and instructions. As I stated earlier this one
came with instructions that made installation a snap. On this
one you just mount the hard drive on the cooler and screw it
in. Then you slide the cooler in and connect the coolerís connector
to the power supply one way or another. Boot the computer up
and watch the fans blow.
3 fans donít even make a noise when they are running full bore.
Well, at least one good thing about the hard drive coolers so
far is that they donít make a noise. This has really surprised
me as I thought that 3 big fans blowing constantly would make
a noise. Guess not. Oh yes and before I forget, was this cooler
King Kong size wise? The fact is yes. Each of the three fans
is weighing in at 4cm by 4cm by 1cm. The same size as the HD
200 hard drive cooler. One massive hard drive cooler if nothing
else. Guess Global Win decided they would do more than just
name this cooler King Kong. They would also set out to make
it the King Kong of hard drive coolers in every way. Did they
succeed? We shall soon find out whether or not this cooler can
live up to the name of King Kong.
cooler is basically designed to blow the hard drives hot air
out of the case. This is a very simple yet good concept. It
doesnít require the fans to blow cool air around the case, or
something complicated like that. In fact even if your case has
bad air circulation, this cooler will still be effective. It
takes the hard drives hot air and blows it out of the system.
So, for this cooler to work all you need is a hard drive that
produces hot air or a lot of hot air by the hard drive. The
more hot air that the hard drive produces, the more effective
this cooler becomes. The Global Win King Kong Hard Drive Cooler
is an easy to install and an effective hard drive cooler. The
King Kong cooler does not produce a King Kong noise, in fact
this was one quiet hard drive cooler. The cooler is also backed
by a 2yr warranty so its guaranteed to last for a while. It
retails for $25, which is a reasonable price.
King Kong Hard Drive Cooler is an exceptional hard drive cooler
which is available at a great price. Iím giving it a 9 for performance
as I donít think any of us have a ďcoldĒ hard drive. Its getting
an 8 for Price since its backed by a 2yr. warranty, and sold
for $25. warranty. I felt that it should have a 3yr. warranty
be sold for $20. Overall Global Winís King Kong Hard Drive Cooler
get an 8.5.
