Two Hard Drive Coolers Compared

Vigor iSurf II Cooling System and Masscool's Sytrin KuFormula SHF-1

Hard disk drive coolers have been around for quite some time. The goal of these devices is to lower the temperature of your HDD or your case, to make your system and drive last longer. Both the iSurf II and Sytrin HD coolers work by placing a heat sink on the drive and blowing air over it with small fans.
