Does anyone have experience with either of these HDD Coolers?

I was thinking of moving my video storage up into a 5.25" bay to
distance it from the system drive and use the the intake fans to
increase positve case pressure.

For my system drive I still want to keep it as low as possible in the
case so I was looking at adding this HDD Cooler that attaches to the
underside to help with internal circulation.
