    Pros & Cons

    Pros

    • Cools extremely well
    • Virtually 0 maintenance once installed
    • Fans are reasonably quiet

    Cons

    • Could be tough to install HDD
    • Does not cool the underside of the drive
    • Takes up a 5.25" Drive Bay

    Conclusion

    I'd have to say that this toy lives up to all of its promises. Once installed the drive ran flawlessly, ran cool, and did everything it was supposed to. I'd say for anyone who cares for their stuff, or has a fast SCSI HDD, I'd say this is a must have.

    As far as this drive cooler goes, I'd have to say its a top notch piece of equipment. The way they rigged the drive mount ensures that the drive will be held flat against the heat sink as much as possible, allowing for a LOT of surface contact. Although installing the drive was a bit of a trick for me, once I had it mounted, system installation was idiot proof. Once again a top notch cooling unit from the boys up at Vantec.
