    Yeah - looking at the image on the link it looks really ugly & out of place on that case.

    I guess it would suit a custom build quite well with exposed internal parts.

    Have to agree with that. it would probably look good hanging out the front of some thing like the HAF.

    Looks space ageish- reckon it might look quite good with an SSD mounted to it (and yes I know SSDs dont produce much heat, just for the awesome looks :naughty:)

    My discs are all cold to the touch. In fact I don't remember a drive even getting warm let alone hot in 18 years of geekery. Maybe I'm lucky... It would be nice to silence the little buggers though, without unwittingly insulating them and raising the temps. Do these products do that?

    Are these hard-disks are only made for general PCs (Limited Size) or they are also available for Servers with larger storage capacities, Server cooling is always a challenge for them who maintain it.
