Allen Ngo,

For those wanting to properly mount their notebook drives onto desktops, consider this hybrid casing and cooling solution. As the Tokyo-based manufacturer of passive and low-noise PC parts, Scythe has announced a special covering for notebook drives that not only protects but will cool, prevent vibrations and reduce noise levels from the hard disk as well.

Called the Himuro Mini HDD Cooler, the aluminum heatsink container can hold a regular 2.5-inch drive with thermal conductive sheets for installation on a 3.5-inch bay. The cooler is compatible with parallel and SATA 2.5-inch drives of up to 14.8mm thick. Overall, the dimensions of the fanless cooler come out to be 101.5x113x25mm.

The Himuro Mini cooler is expected to be available by the end of the week in Europe for €14.25 ($20.68). The official product page can be seen here.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
