Scythe Quiet Drive
Scythe is a name synonymous with aftermarket cooling hardware. I would like to wager that there aren't too many PC enthusiasts who hadn't at least seen, owned or heard about this well known Japanese based company's products.
While many of you would be familiar with their vast range of well-performing CPU heatsinks, Scythe also caters for other PC hardware and effectively cooling it. Today we have been fortunate enough to have been supplied with Scythe's Quiet Drive
, a fanless HDD chassis.
Anyway, let's have a look at the Scythe Quiet Drive's specifications...
The Scythe Quiet Drive's specifications were taken directly, and unashamedly, from the product's webpage
Model Name: Quiet Drive
Model #: SQD-1000
Manufacturer: Scythe Co., Ltd. Japan
Dimensions: 145 x 198 x 36.5mm
Hard Disk Type: Parallel & Serial ATA
Case Bay: Standard 5.25" Bay
Core Structure: Quadruple with Double Noise Reduction, Heat Diffusion & Anti-Vibration

I have no doubt after looking at the Quiet Drive that it will reduce HDD noise quite significantly, but how the temperatures will fair I guess we'll have to wait and see. One other thing that should be mentioned here that isn't in the specifications above, is whether or not the Quiet Drive is suitable for high RPM drives like the Cheetah. Incidentally, Scythe also manufactures a 2.5" Quiet Drive
for those who require it.
Let's head over the page to have a look at the Scythe Quiet Drive's packaging, and the unit itself in a little more detail.
