Summary: I have the 2 fans version on this cooler and it's very noisy. I checked on the Startech web site and it indicates that the 2 fans version of this cooler is 36 Decibels and the 3 fans version should be near 38 DB. If you want a silent PC, it won't be the case with this cooler.
Pros: Good cooling for a hard drive mounted in 5,25 bay.

Summary: In a world where performance is everything it's no surprise that you can literally cool everything inside a computer. Not too long ago I was given the StarTech triple fan hard drive cooling kit, which is a mouthful to say a couple of times. First things first this is a fan piece that can cool one hard drive and it consists of a piece of plastic encasing 3 fans.
