    Cooler Master enters the external hard drive enclosure market with their X-Craft series. Just like their cases, the X-Craft is very sturdy and once again does not disappoint. Everything from the tool-free design down to the extra USB/Firewire connectors and great looks make it a joy to use. The performance for both Firewire and USB is just as expected and the backup software, albeit very simple, gets the job done.

    well just by doing the touch, I am guessing the case draws the heat really well. It is much like an extention of the metal casing of the hard drive. So I do not think it gets much hotter than as if it was just lying out on top of the computer (which the HDD was for a while).

    cheers

    Can I put a serial-ata hard drive inside this and connect it with my eSATA motherboard port?
