the HD cooler, I can get for $40, the other one , for $25. The HD coller I think might look abit cooler in my case, and it has a thermal sensor that you can put anywhere in your case to keep track of the temp. The other one, I don't muhc about.

It controls upto 3 fans. I have 1 in my case, and it's the PS fan. Kinda one of the reasons why I wanted the HDD cooler. I do plan on adding fans, but I don't know how long down the road that will be.
