View Full Version : Hard drive cooler - is the Vantec Vortex any good?

I am looking forward into buying this model.
- It fits over a 5.25" which sounds cosy.
- It looks like a good perfomer (I really don't care about noise levels).
- It suits black cases and its overall looks are good.
What do you think?

Probably good for what it is but if your case has good air flow or you have a case fan blowing on your drives such coolers are not needed.

But if it's a gotta have then that's different. :D

I had a hard drive cooler a while back - i forget the brand but it didn't do much. The best thing you can do is make the whole case temperature cooler. Don't put your case in a desk closet type thing wear heat can't escape, etc. If you case is nice and cool, your drives will be also.

I just found mine to be a waste of money.
