Default Cooler Master Cool Drive 6

Brand new HDD bay from Cooler Master with an added interactivity twist, after the Wattage meter on the Real Power you now get to:

"displaying temperature and speed, besides, it also provides PC software to detect HDD’s information, such as space, transfer speed. You can directly monitor the HDD’s information by control panel or PC through software. "

it has excellent build quality (as usual ) and looks quite stunning:



We had the choice between reviewing this baby or the new Aerogate 3 http://www.coolermaster.com/index.ph...&other_title=0

Looking forward to a Fan controller which can be manipulated and controlled from Windows using USB, as well as sending custom messages to the integrated LCD display

would make for a cool accessory which would work plug and play. They are on the right track though

Is this internally mounted or externally?

A quick look at Aerogate 3, it has some potential. My take, the fan controller.

Has anyone checked out the new fan (dual blade) from CM?

It should work; I have tested CV with counter clockwise + clockwise fans -- works really good.

Sub zero temp monitoring would be nice too

Personally, I don't care much for HDD enclosure because a good design case with good front intake fan or fans; HDD's temps are never an issue.

So, I take the Aerogate 3.

I thought it was a choice between the two.

problem with the nondrive controlpannels, they are a ***** to mount in cases with mounting rails. the side panels are to short and to weak.
even in their own cm-stacker case, which is devine, it was very difficult.

better got me some drive kits, but they don't excist in black.
