Thermaltake’s Max 5G Dual Fan Hard Drive Keeps Your Drives Cool

It always baffles me when people opt for those lightweight, portable, and small hard drive enclosures. Don’t get me wrong, they are easily portable, but there’s one thing that you should know: fast hard drives can generate a lot of heat, and if you external hard drive will be on for hours, then it’s best to get one with fans.

I had one LaCie hard drive overheat and fail on me. Since then, I’ve always opted for external hard drives with fans. A lot of people leave their hard drives on all day, so it’s no wonder that there are so many heat-induced failures.

Thermaltake hopes to cure this problem with their new Max 5G dual fan hard drive enclosure. Your hard drive will remain nice and cool with these fans. The Max 5G has a pair of blue LED-backlit 80mm fans which are supposed to be “ultra-quiet”, and can handle 3.5” SATA I, II, and 6G Hard Drives up to 2TB. And since it’s USB 3.0 compatible, it can handle drives with a data transfer rate up to 5Gbps. It’s available for pre-order now over at Amazon for $52 (USD).
