NEED serious advice about Hard Drive Cooling (Pair of SCSI 15k)

  1. I have been trying to determine which device would be best suited for cooling a pair of SCSi 15k HDDs. I have been looking around at some of the following (in order) of interest. Sound dampening is not a huge concern, mainly concerned about cooling.

    Smart Drive 2002 Copper Hard Drive Enclosure- SCSI compatible? Little documentation to indicate if rear is already equipped with wiring or is this will work with SCSI cables?
    AEROCOOL HB-101 Hard Drive Cooler Aluminum- Wondering if this is a gimmick or a real option... or a SilverStone SST-FP53-B 5.25" Hard Drive Cooler or a Cooler Master CoolDrive 3... ??? Any other reccommendations based on experience or reviews? Thanks in advance for any help.

    if you haven't already bought a case, buy a case with a hard drive cage fan and put it to use. for internal enclousures, all same size drives and cages are compatible. just make sure you have cool air blowing on those drives and they should be just fine.

    I'd go out and pick up an Antec B case with PSU and 120mm rear exhaust fan and an 80mm intake fan.
