Sytrin KuFormula SHF1 Ultra Hard Drive Cooler

Makaveli    -   April 1, 2007


Testing:

I put my Western Digital 250GB IDE hard drive into the cooler and recorded results from HDDHealth while it was idle and with load (in all tests, lower is better).


Test System:
  • ASUS P5N32-SLi SE Deluxe Motherboard
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Processor
  • eVGA 7950GT KO Video Card
  • OCZ Gold 1GB (2 x 512MB) DDR2 800 Memory
  • Audigy 2 Sound Card
  • XG Vortec 600watt Power Supply
  • Western Digital 250GB IDE Hard Drive
  • Western Digital 160GB SATA 3.0GB/s Hard Drive
  • Seagate 80GB IDE Hard Drive
  • Windows XP Media Center 2005
  • SilverStone TJ-06 Black with Window




I’m simply stunned! Both tests yielded extremely good temperatures from the drive with the cooler. Using HDTach, let’s find out if a cooler drive produces better performance (higher is better).



As you can see, there is no question at all that a cooler drive performs better than the non-cooled drive. HDTach also showed that the drive with the cooler had a CPU Utilization of 4%, whereas without the cooler, it was 5%.
