3 out of 5 eggs Great cooler but........ 02/25/2012

This review is from: MASSCOOL SYTRIN Kuformula SHF1 Ultra HDD Cooler – BK

Pros:

looks really really nice in my Thermaltake Armor+ and does a nice job of keeping the hd's (3) cool. But now the cons.

Cons:

As everyone knows, dust is a killer for a computer and needless to say you have do do some housecleaning once in a while. This includes your hard drives which are enclosed in the Masscool Sytrin. The drives get dirty after a while and you have to remove the drives from the enclosure to clean them as well as cleaning the fans.. The problem is the fans. These things are very touchy. You can tear a wire from the fan and not know it, so when you put it back in, the fan(s) don't work. Cable management is not the highlite of these things. Also, the wires from the fans are short and are hard to connect, again you can tear a wire loose and now you don't have your fan(s). I clean my computer at least every 6 months cause I live in a very dusty area and it never fails, I have to replace at least one fan. I just cleaned my case and now it looks like I have to replace 3 fans and the funny part about it is I'm very careful hooking these things up. Oh well, Guess I'll go with External.

Other Thoughts:

When I bought this enclosure(3 of them), I also bought replacement fans (10 of them). I've had these for two years and I have 1 replacement fan left.
The enclosure does the job. It keeps the HD cool, but the fans are the issue, at least for me. Just remember to be careful with those wires, they will break off at the fan and if it does, well, don't say I didn't warn ya.
