    Hi I am looking for 2 hard drive coolers-black, can anyone recommend something that actually works and looks half decent.

    Also ar there any coolers for a 3.5" bay. Got a hard drive in one that I would also like to cool. And no I can't move it.

    Thank you.

    The decent coolers are usually mounted on the 5 and a quater inch bays, as they give the drives room to breath. I suggest moving the higher performance drives into the larger bays and buying coolers, and the lower performance drives into the smaller bays.

    I had a coolermaster drive cooler back in the UK, my drive used to get really hot before I installed it. Made a big difference for my system stability.

    Thanks Snake.

    Going to do a little rearranging I guess. Was looking at the Coolmaster's. Also Vantek.

    try and google for "ultima harddrive cooler" or something similar.
    It looks a bit like a heatsink with a few windtunnels for your front mount 80MM intake fan.
    It's nearly the only one that actually makes a difference worth the money.
    the 5"1/2 just pollute your view and serenity. (load and ineffective)
