I also found this over at Kool 'n Quiet. Its not mentioned in our Forums either.

They state that it both silences and cools a HDD. However there are no details on the site as to how the HDD is mounted in the cooler.

I've found a few links about it, but they are all in German. Google's ability to translate the pages was v poor - so hands up who speaks German ! :)

Short and sweet: Good at decoupling the drive, but does little to cool it.

Here's more information and pictures.

The method of attachment to the case/cage seems to be identical to Zalman's. My direct practical experience is that decoupling with elasic suspension is better at attenuating vibration than the hard rubber isolation mounts that came with my Zalman ZM-2HC1.
