Vizo Orbiter and Voyager 3.5" hard disk drive coolers review
As part of our quest for speed in every aspect of PC use, we've seen the performance of modern hard disk drives ramp up over time alongside their increasing capacities. As with so many other components, these increases have also brought with them more pressing concerns over heat - Although most modern chassis offer good airflow over any hard disks as a priority, this isn't always the case with some older systems. If you're worried about cooling or airflow for your own 3.5" drives, then you might want to check out the pair of offerings under the spotlight at Elite Bastards today, in the form of Vizo's Orbiter and Voyager hard disk drive coolers.
Removing the Orbiter from its packaging, we can see the actual cooler itself properly. It's a pretty simple affair, consisting of that 60mm fan coupled with a mounting bracket to allow it to be screwed to the underside of any 3.5" hard drive, and a four-pin Molex connector to provide power to the cooler. Four screws are also provided to attach the cooler to the drive.

i've never seen the use for hard-drive coolers.
that 32-38c that they were getting without additional cooling can be
considered being on the "cool" side of "acceptable" temps for an hd.
as long as you have some sort of airflow, no matter how small, going across
your hard-drives, you should be fine. doubly so if your hard-drives are
hard-mounted right onto your chassis, since it acts as a heatsink for hds.
