Final Frontier meldde dat Club OC een review online heeft gezet van de Vantec Bay Freezer. Het betreft een 5.25" cooler die aan de achterkant 2 afzonderlijke uitschuifbare fans heeft die tussen 7"(18cm) en 9.75"(25cm) kunnen variëren.
Dit keer is de conclusie een stuk minder dan die van Hardware Unlimited, de temperaturen blijven namelijk steken op de waarden die ze al hadden vóór de test (CPU 26, Videokaart 34 en Systeem 24 graden):
Well, I was very disappointed in the performance. I have a Vantec HDD cooler that I use and I like it a lot. This product is just not going to cut it for the overclocker that wants the most for their money. At $24.99, the bang for your buck is not there. We recommend you buy a 120mm fan, from Overclockers Hideout and get more then twice the airflow. Oh, and the 120mm fan is only $12.49. You could buy two! If you have no room for the 120's, then look into a slot cooler. They fit into an empty PCI slot and put the air where you need it most. If that doesn't work for you either, then DON'T OVERCLOCK! Save your money and buy a case that let's you put fans where you need them.
Vantec really dropped the ball on this one. Our "fully assembled" product wasn't exactly FULLY ASSEMBLED. Both fans blades were popped off the fan motors so we had to repair the Bay Freezer before we could test it! It is possible that this could have happened during shipping but it looks more like a result of shoddy assembly work. The quality and performance this product was no where near what we expected from Vantec.
