I was doing some research on cooling options for my computer I am building and came across this website (colorcases.com). I found this thing that looks like a little fan unit that goes in a bay on the front of a computer. I'm not sure if it actually is a mini refrigeration unit or just a fan. Anybody seen anything like this before? I emailed the company for information (they don't even tell you what it is on the web site) but I haven't got a reply yet. They just tell you it's a hard drive cooler. There's no information about how much power it uses either, I'm assuming this won't be that big of an issue but I wan't to make sure I have enough power coming from my power supply.

All it is, is an exhaust port for the front of your computer. I've heard it is a very good product and I'm currently thinking about getitng one myself.

Yes it probably is a pretty good way, however it is a bit pricey for just 34CFM of airflow..
