Both performance and drive life expectancy decrease when heat increases so it's best to keep your drive cool. The included ultra slim 80 mm fan is mounted beneath the rack to allow sufficient cooling for all types of applications. Whether you're running a server that's constantly under heavy load or media system that's running 24/7, you'll be able to rest at ease knowing your drives aren't overheating.
