Conclusion:

While hard drives do not generate a lot of excess heat, the heat that they do generate can decrease performance and cause your drive to fail. With a hard drive cooler, the heat is dissipated more efficiently, allowing the hard drive to run cooler and perform better. The Ultra Aluminum Hard Drive Cooler does a great job of doing this. A lot of people, including myself, don't believe that every cooling solution needs a fan, and the passive design of the Ultra does a great job addressing this need. With both an increase in performance and a drop in temperatures, the cooler was able to hit upon the two things that all hard drive coolers should do. Also, when the drive is installed, there is nothing flashy or showy, keeping things modest for those who like their computer that way. The only downside to the cooler is something that really depends on what case you own and what hard drive you put into the cooler, as the Ultra can take up more than one 5.25" bay in some situations. If you are looking for a hard drive cooler, whether to increase performance or protect your data from sudden failure, the Ultra Aluminum Hard Drive Cooler would be an excellent choice.
