With the dramatic increase in speed and capacity, thermal management also becomes a crucial aspect when designing an external enclosure. To help dissipate heat buildup inside the enclosure and to maintain optimal operational temperature for the hard disk, an 80x80x15mm low profile and ultra-quiet fan is designed in for ultimate cooling efficiency. In addition, brushed aluminum body with side ventilation holes allows the embedded fan to accelerate airflow and boost the rate of natural convection.
Max4 eSATA with embedded active cooling external enclosure comes standard with aluminum stand for vertical placement. The unit features a 80mm fan with blue LEDs and produces about 20dBA.
