HD-57 Soft Cold Plate for 3.5in Hard Drives

Part No. HD-57 This product is archived and displayed for information only. It is no longer available for purchase. Released: 20 December 2007

The double sided Koolance HD-57 captures heat from the spindle motor and printed circuit boards of one or two 3.5-inch IDE, SATA, SCSI, or SAS drives. The HD-57 allows any available fitting diameter.

Using Koolance's patented Hydra-PakTM soft cooler technology, the cooler's weight is substantially reduced while eliminating the need for thermal encapsulate required by earlier coolers.

NOTE: Depending on the fittings chosen for it, the HD-57 water block may not work in all systems. If your chassis places the hard drive connections near a side panel (perpendicular to the front), make sure the selected HD-57 fittings will fit. Each fitting page has a "diagrams" button with dimensions. Furthermore, the HD-57 requires more room between hard drives than other Koolance hard drive water blocks.
