We were surprised when we first tested the first version of this product from Zalman, the ZM-2HC1. Originally we thought the ZM-2HC1 was only a little more than a gimmick. Yet, once we tested the product, however, we quickly realized that what Zalman said about their hard drive heatpipe was true. It substantially reduces hard drive noise and cools your hard drive.
This is the revised version of the ZM-2HC1, the ZM-2HC2. Because it has eleven heatpipes instead of ten and greater heat dissipation area, it cools even better than the previous version. It also noticeably dampens hard drive vibration, thereby decreasing hard drive noise.
The concept behind Zalman's hard drive heatpipe (ZM-2HC2) is simple, yet unique. Zalman uses heavy duty aluminum bars combined with copper heatpipes to cool your hard drive. The ZM-2HC2 also uses rubber sound dampeners to dramatically cut hard drive noise.
Hard drive noise is cut by decreasing the vibration produced by your hard drive. In particular, Zalman's unique product does an especially good job at reducing the vibration that is transferred to your case. Today's newer, faster hard drives are particularly prone to noise caused when the vibration of their spinning platters is transferred to your case. This hard drive heatpipe (ZM-2HC2) can be used with any 3 1/2" hard drive whether it be a 5400, 7200, 10K, or even 15K rpm hard drive. In fact, Zalman's harddrive heatpipe is ideal for the fastest, hottest drives! If you have a 15,000 rpm drive, then the ZM-2HC2 is an affordable solution for your hard drive noise. Unlike most hard drive enclosures, this heatpipe solution for your hard drive, only increases hard drive heat dissipation.
