Titan RTNV TTC-HD90 Hdd Cooler
Installation and Testing
Following the instructions printed on the inside of the card insert, installation of the drive to the cooler was a simple affair. Starting by peeling back the protective plastic covers from the heat pads.
Followed by placing the drive into the bottom half of the unit, making sure that the connectors are situated correctly. This was a little bit of a squeeze due the foam on the sides. But hopefully it'll mean that the drives vibrations will be well dampened.
The next step was to screw on the bottom of the cooler using the screws provided. This squishes the drive into place and ensures proper contact with the heat pads. Unfortunately, this 30 second, easy-as-pie sounding job was made quite frustrating by the fact that without a magnetic screw driver of the right size. As soon as the screw passed the fist fin it tumbled off the end of the screw driver and more often than not off into oblivion somewhere. There was quite a lot of force required to get the top and bottom flush but, as with the foam, hopefully this means the pads will be making very good contact.
After several minutes of battling with screws and crawling around on the floor trying to find dropped ones. You finish by screwing in the back plate. Making the unit fully rigid. Following sandwiching the drive into the unit.
All that remains is to slide it into a spare 5 & 1/4" drive bay and screw it in using up the remainder of the provided screws.
