This triple fan hard drive cooler provides maximum airflow for hot-running hard drives, preventing overheating failures and extending the life of the drive.

The fan unit mounts in any free 5.25 inch drive bay, and the hard drive is mounted directly behind it using the supplied 3.5 inch to 5.25 inch adapter brackets; the fans draw fresh external air into the case through a removable, cleanable filter and blows the cooler air over the surface of the hard drive - a cost-effective solution that can help extend the life of hot running 7200 RPM, 10,000, or 15,000 RPM IDE and SCSI hard drives in servers or workstations.

4 out of 5 eggsCooler Looking w/o filter.

Pros: The overall build quality is high and it seems like it might last awhile. Simple to install IF you open your case ALL the way up (this is part of the con). Take off the covers and it looks sweet!

Cons: I feel like it could run quicker and push more air, there maybe away to do it, but as it connects to molex I could think of many specific easy way to do it.

Because the bracket is detachable, without it if you have a case that supports "snap -in" screw-less drive bays it won't work with these, so I opened it all up and screw-ed it in, not a biggie but something to think about it.

Other Thoughts: Still 4 eggs because build quality is nice and they look cool. Also the covers slide on and off easily.

5 out of 5 eggsParts is parts

Pros: 3 40mm fans for half the price you would pay for them individually. It also has a filter to help keep the dust out of your system... but I just wanted the fans.

Cons: None really... I'm not using it on my system but have had a similar unit in the past and it worked pretty well at its intended purpose.

Other Thoughts: I just needed the fans for a case mod project and to buy the fans separately would have been over $10 each... saved some money and put the leftover parts in my spare parts bin for a project to be conceived later!

3 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Great concept converts a 5.25 drive bay into a 3.5 hard drive bay. Good solution for me since my case only had one 3.5 hard drive slot and I needed two Hard drives and only one DVD player. Helps keep hard drive cool.

Cons: Does not come with instruction but with a little trial and error can figure it out. The fans are a little loud but kind to be expected to me. Not the toughest accessory and could be made a little better.

Other Thoughts: Note: With the APEVIA CORP. X-MASTER-AL/500 case the hard drive mounts just fine, there is no place to attached the fans so i had to just slide it into the 5.25 slot thankfully was a tigh fit and holds with out screws. It works for me but may not be optimal for all.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: excellent airflow, looks great, built in dust filters, uses very little power, puts extra drive bays to good use.

Cons: none that i can think of, except that there are no led's

Other Thoughts: i have 4 of these in the front of my cooler master scout sniper case, and the air flow is amazing. a nice cool breeze blowing through my case, across my motherboard and out the back through the corsair H50 radiator with push pull fans on it.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks great

Worth keeping in your case for air flow if you can get it cheap

Cons: Costs two and a half times what it should

No instructions (could not figure how to use it in conjunction with hard drive)

Two of these (six fans) moved less air than your standard 80mm fan that everyone knows and loves

I would not try to remove the filter - it looks flimsy

Other Thoughts: I originally bought this as a case fan. I then excitedly realized that, for me, using it for what it was designed for would be best for air flow, a lot better for air flow.

But I couldn't get it to mount in conjunction with the included brackets. They are way too cheap and flimsy.

I later went with just the fans and they hold in pretty well, they're just not very useful, all things considered.
