Vigor Force Super Tower Case and Surf HDD Cooler
In addition to the Monsoon II TEC cooler, the good folks at Vigor Gaming sent along one of their super tower cases and a Surf HDD cooler, which are used in their desktop gaming rigs.
The full tower case supports both ATX and BTX form factors and features excellent ventilation, vibration noise control, security locks, and plenty of room to work. The case is well made, structurally rigid, and looks great! There is room for 7 external 5.25′ devices and 4 internal HDDs along with up to three 120mm fans in front, one in the back and a 92mm fan on the side panel.
Macstek also provides a 5.25′ drive bay HDD cooler to keep all your HDDs cool and blends in nicely with the overall aesthetics of the system. The all-aluminum Surf HDD cooler is available in either silver or black and incorporates two 40mm, sleeve bearing fans (PL42S12M) for cooling.
Macstek Surf HDD Cooler Specifications (from the Macstek website)
The Surf HDD cooler fan noise is noticeable during normal operation when operating on 12 VDC. Powering the two little fans from 7V makes the cooler very quiet and dropping down to 5V makes it virtually silent.
