PICKED UP ONE OF THESE FANS YESTERDAY JUST AS A COOL GADGET BUT AM QUITE IMPRESSED WITH HOW MUCH THEY COOL YOU DOWN. CAN ALSO BE USED ANYWHERE IN THE HOUSE IF YOU HAVE A USB MAINS PLUG.

YOU COOL YOUR EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE WITH A USB FAN? WOW, YOU'RE TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL.

better to leave your external HDD alone before the ice all melted.

I have a mini fridge for my external HDD.

You can get these for less that £3 on amazon

I live in a refrigerated truck container, everything is cool.

DarkBruv felt the need to mention size too..

WTF is wrong with your HDD if it needs cooling like that? Did you just buy it and felt the need to share? You've had enough sharing for one day now. Put the mouse down.

not a good fan, because not cool enough, too hot.;)

Noisy?

Will this cool my 4TB hdd or will I need more?

I'd recommend 2 fans for that job

3TB defo, might be struggling with 4TB though..depend how many hot pictures/movies are stored.

my external drive is so external it is in the North Pole guarded by Polar bears. Heat added (no pun intended)

got a link then?

Back in the 90s I had a friend of a friend who got a mini fridge and used that as his case. Mobo laid out with cables to HDD etc. Apparently it worked for a while then it blew up.

Could be a stupid passed on story that got out of hand as I never met this friend of a friend... but yeah; I forgot the point of this reply.

Ah, we meet again captain capital

seen one in newry NI

CAN YOU SAY THAT AGAIN I DIDN'T QUITE HEAR YOU

heat added, good find, thanks

Got one earlier, it's alright. Bit noisier than I would've liked but does the job.

Don't know how big this one is but they have USB fans in home bargains for £2.49 and they are pretty good

Back in stock in bolton store.
White though.

Wilkos have a black one that is exactly the same design for £6
