Default Which Hard Drive Cooler

I'm leaning towards the Vantec because of the aluminum heatsink.

i would get the Vantec too. you know you could probably get away without a HDD cooler depending on how many drives you have and the airflow in your case. i re-arranged my three hdd's and they just have an intake fan blowing across them and the temps are
36 gb raptor: 26 degrees
80gb caviar: 29 degrees
250gb caviar: 32 degrees

The case (antec) doesn't allow you to add a 12cm fan to blow on the drives, only below. So I figured I add this since I've heard that this WD drive reaches 50C if its passively cooled.
