A bottom view:
The HD Cooler is mounted on the bottom of a hard drive – you have to ensure that there is enough clearance under the fan to allow unobstructed air entry.
To test its effectiveness, I placed a thermocouple of the top of a Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm, 120 GB, HD and measured the drive and ambient temps; I then mounted the HD Cooler and measured temps after a half hour with the following results:

Jetart’s HD Cooler dropped drive temps by 9.1ºC – not bad! The fan is very quiet – you will not hear it in a case.
Jetart’s 3.5″ HD Cooler is a simple, effective solution to moderating HD temps. I installed it to test and it’s staying there.
Thanks again to Jetart for sending this our way to test out.
