Default HDD cooler

I looked around Frozencpu for HDD coolers, but I'm wondering what your guys' opinion was on a great HDD cooler. I have a 74 gig Raptor 10K RPM, and now that it's summer time in sacramento (90-100) it's overheating pretty bad, and I want to get a HDD cooler before it burns itself to death.

so yeah, I'll post some that I find might be good.

Newegg.com - VANTEC HDC-502A Aluminum Aluminum Hard Disk Cooler - Retail

I'd give a cooler a try, there pretty cheap.

get an antec900 case, it has a 120mm fan in front of the HDD cage, and if u want, u can put in another 120mm fan behind it for maximum air movement

i just thought it had very good air movement since u can put 3 fans in a line to draw cool air in and blow out warm air
