Nice review PV. Seems that if you have a noisy HD (Raptors?) then this might be worth considering but for quiet drives there is little point to it.

I'm not keen on losing a number of drivebays to fit them either.

Thanks mate. Yeah the Himuro certainly works better at quietening them down than cooling them. Disappointing considering it's marketed predominantly as a HDD cooler

Ooh nice review

Although, my only gripe, Im sure the heat is on the bottom of a HDD?

Hi, I have a question about Scythe Himuro
Once it is installed in the computer, it seems like the Himuro can slide around because of the feet?
Even after the feet are screwed into the computer can the Himuro still slide back and forth? That would be bad
