Remember the IBM hard drive debacle sometime back? The one where multiple IBM
hard drives just started dying out of the blue? On the other hand, there were
users of the exact same drives who weren't having any problems at all with
their IBM drives. The supposed difference? The IBM hard drives that ran without
a hitch all had some form of hard drive cooling, either by way fans or hard
drive racks which also doubled as hard drive coolers. On the other hand, that
particular scenario wasn't the say all be all, due to some users claiming that
their drives died even with sufficient cooling.
Enter CoolerMaster's CoolDrive3. While CoolerMaster is more known for their
line of excellent aluminum cases, they also happen to provide the enthusiast
market with other types of products including thermal compounds, CPU coolers
and also hard drive cooling solutions. The CoolDrive3 is CoolerMaster's latest
hard drive cooling solution which attempts to blend visual flair with
functionality. While I haven't had the chance to check out their other hard
drive cooler; the DCD-4002; the CoolDrive3 should prove interesting.
