Titan RTNV TTC-HD90 Hdd Cooler

Conclusion

Conclusion
 
Overall the RTNV does it job perfectly well. Cooling the drive beyond what it claims in the testing and silencing an extremely noisy drive to acceptable levels. It could be questionable about the overall usefulness of the product, as if the drive is only getting to 39°C to start with then does it really need cooling? Cooler electronics normally mean longer life and overall healthier system, however. So the need is there and Titan have met it with a product that has met up the the challenge.
 
It's a shame to see the product presented in packaging that's not quite up to the task of keeping it safe. This really leaves it up to the retailer to protect the item from the rough handed carriers. The only real flaw with the product seems to be the issue putting in the screws, but this really is a minor gripe and doesn't effect the product when installed and working anyway.
 
Upon searching the web for a price for the RTNV I couldn't find one at any of my normal e-tailer stops, and a Google product search revealed nothing form either the US or UK side of the pond. However I did find a few European stockists and their prices were hovering around the €35 mark, translating into about £26 at the time of writing. This seems a little steep to me, but the cost can be justified if your looking to for results when cooling and silencing a drive.

Wow, nice review, just had a quick skim through as its not my type of thing but you got cool running drives there. Myn used to hit 50 degrees with a 120mm fan to the side (which mostly air hits the cage) and now i have one going over them as well and its keeps them under 40...
