HDD cooling (and reduce noise) on Bitfenix's Shinobi XL ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a Bitfenix's Shinobi XL already damped with King mod's damping and I still have some noise issues with my 5 HDD (5400 to 7200 rpm).

What do you think of HDD cooler and silencer : Scythe's Himuro HDD Cooler ?

My idea is to take five of them and put them in a "rack" in the place reserved for the hdd into the shinobi.

Any thought about it ?

If you need a HD cooler, than your case has bad airflow. So HD coolers are more of a bandaid than a solution.

Will it reduce HDD noise? That heatsink screws on to the top of the hard drive, and does nothing to cover the bottom. All HDD's are slightly different thickness (but all the same width),...so i am wondering if that will even be a perfect fit. I don't think that will do anything to reduce the noise.

It seems like a gimmick to me.

My problem is mostly that the case hdd holder transmit the vibration of the HDD, so this might be better with those ?
