Default HDD Coolers

Does anyone know of any reliable HDD Coolers I know Zalman makes a HeatPipe that supposedly is alright. Are there any other reliable HDD Coolers?

thats the zalman, 24 isn't too bad. coolermaster's looks much better though, for 35.

check out tiger direct under cooling devices, vantec also makes barebones hdd coolers, and the ones that surround the drive.

Make sure Your case has enough space, I had some fans that attached to the bottom of my hard drives and when I got my new case couldnt fit it into the drive bay. Although I only noticed a slight drop in temp whne using them.

as long as you stick to decent manufacturers like ThermalTake or Zalman you'll be fine.

I'm sure the Zalman will work fine, but make sure you orient it correctly in the case. The heat pipes work by air convection, so it helps to have it installed right.
