Hello,
I have a Zalman GS1000 case with 6 sata drives (2 hot swap PCB's installed). Is anyone aware of any HDD cooling product that would help keep the drives cooler (only 2 drives are running hot).
In this case there are 2 (I believe) 120mm fans on the top and bottom and one on the back.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

there are hdd heatpipes which you can install on HDD's to help with heat transfer, other than that you need to upgrade stock fans. ZALMAN are into silent pc's which mean the fans willnot push as much air as possible to keepnoise down.

Thank you for the suggestion. I completely forgot about HDD Heatpipes. I did upgrade the fans (total of 5 fans) when I bought the case... unfortunately the 2 pcb's that are installed for hot swapping must be blocking some airflow from the main part of the case.
