This review is from: ICY DOCK EZConvert Pro MB982IP-1S-1 Full Metal 2.5" to 3.5" SAS SSD & HDD Converter / Adapter / Mounting Kit / Bracket (Supports 7mm, 9.5mm, 12.5mm and 15mm drive height)
Pros: I had 4 new Seagate Savvios and purposely purchased a server with 3.5" bays (cheaper than 2.5 from this server vendor) with the goal of using these 4 Icy Docks.
So far, so good, although note the bays even in a quality SuperMicro server might be too irregular to fit every single Icy Dock. By this I mean that a slight bulge in one place or another, even though (or perhaps because) the ID is a solid product, can prevent a perfect fit -- not all permutations of bays and docks worked for me, but they're all in now and slide in and out just fine from their "assigned" bay.
As for heating/cooling, can't really say at this point, and it's not a really dense server so unlikely to be a good testbed. This review is more about the full 3.5" footprint and whether these can work with hot-swap bays. I'd say they can.
Cons: Maybe a little exactly full-sized? But only in a constrained situation would this be a prob.
