4 out of 5 eggsNicely engineered adapter

Pros: Fit and finish are good. Has plenty of adjustability to line up correctly with optical drive/blank panels. Black plastic matches well, and the embossed logo looks nice mounted in my Antec Solo case. Package included all necessary hardware. Hard drive temps are now only 5 degrees above ambient, and the included quick release rails mounted easily and snapped into place very securely.

Cons: The mounting holes on the bottom row are slightly lower than those on the hard drive (1 TB WD Blue). This was not an issue since I only had 2 hard drives to mount. The included fan is noisy, although being in the front of the case does not help. The fan only has a 4 pin molex pass through adapter for direct hookup to the power supply, and consequently cannot be used with motherboard headers. The dust filter does not fill the compartment fully, allowing air to bypass filter. Used some foam lying around to shim it up. The "anti-seismatic" rubber bumpers are only marginally effective at silencing the drives, but the screws were so tight that the rubber was compressed and rock hard. Loosening the screws helped. -1 star.

Other Thoughts: When I discovered my newly acquired XFX R9 290 was too long to fit in my 5 year old Antec Solo, I was distraught. I love this case, and have yet to see a design I like better. This device made it possible to drill out the rivets and remove the drive cage, and now the video card fits with room to spare. I lament the loss of the brilliant hard drive suspension mounts that are a signature of the Solo design, but this adapter has saved me the cost of a new case, and keeps the drives cooler as well. I may try to run the included fan at 5 volts for lower noise. For the cost, I find this to be a great product.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: For whatever reason you decide you want/need 3.5" drives in a 5.25" bay, this product gets the job done. It comes with an additional adapter that fits onto it to support four 2.5" drives instead. The front has a door that opens to reveal the fan and the filter.

Cons: The door in front seems to take a decent amount of force to open. This isn't that big of an issue unless you find yourself constantly opening it to clean the filter.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this in my HAF XB as it didn't come with bays for 3.5" drives other than the hotswap bays. while I didn't mind the way it looked too much, I took off the front panel and threw my covers over it for a more matching feel.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what its suppose to

Pros: Does what the product is suppose to do. Comes with all the screws necessary and screws to spare..

Cons: I use a Corsair 750D as my case and the front frame of this product did not fit into the 5.25" bay, Nothing a little bit of sanding didnt fix.

Other Thoughts: It does what the product was made to do, Nice and cheap, so no breaking the wallet.

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased

Pros: My case wouldn't let me install 2 video cards without blocking too much of the 3.5" drive bays, so I got this to put them up top where DVD drives used to go. It has a really nice air filter that keeps the dust out of my machine and the drives nice and cool. When one of my HDs started to fail, it was the one *outside* of this box. So I just ordered a second one of these :)

Cons: The drives are very close together - although it doesn't seem to be a problem. There's also nothing between the fan and the filter, so when you're changing it you'll have to be careful.

5 out of 5 eggsChange the fan!

Pros: Serves its purpose of using the 5.25" slots for 3.5" drives in a 3:2 ratio.

Cons: The fan lacks a tachometer and uses the old-style disk drive power connector. which isn't compatible with most fan controllers. I cut off the power connector and soldered/heat-shrinked a fan connector but there is no tachometer connection. So I will replace the fan with an 80mm fan with a tachometer.

A little bit of a tight fit on my Lian Li case.

5 out of 5 eggsNice product

Pros: Mostly solid metal construction. The front filter housing is plastic. Filter is very easy to remove. I was able to remove the front filter housing easily since I don't need it.

The HD tray has rubber grommets to help reduce vibration from the fan tray.

Cons: The screws have a terrible design and could easily be stripped, just use more caution with them.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty cool product!

Pros: Fitted my 3.5 HDD and 2.5 SSD, with a separate tray I bought, quite nice.
Air moves very little with the filter on but without it, of course, moves a bit more.
Fan is completely silent .
Easy front access to filter.

Cons: Little difficult to install. Nearly had to force it further back and luckily nothing was damage. I had to shave the sides because it wasn't flush with the blu-ray drive and the Corsair 500r front panel. Maybe I got a product with the dimensions off?

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm impressed with this product. It took away both hard drive cages on the 500r to allow better airflow. You could probably do a water cooling build since theres a lot of room without the cages.

Would be cool if Newegg allowed customer pictures so other customers know how it would look.

5 out of 5 eggsNice, value adapter

Pros: My motivation was to achieve a 2-to-3 slot adaptation, and the box did it's job for me. I needed room for 5-additional HDDs, so I had to move 3 drives out from the lower mounts, and the Cooling Box provided the required drive slots--actually only a net 1 increase, but that's what I needed.

The fan is quite quiet. I bought a fan controller to slow it down a bit more, but when the controller arrived I just put it up on the shelf unused, not needed. This whole new system is going to be absolutely silent!

The disk drives used to run at 30 degrees Celsius with the system idling, now they are 27.

Cons: Three typical 1.1" high disks is not doable. I'm using one 7mm high SSD on the bottom, and two 0.75" high HDDs above that. Three 3/4" drives would be okay, but three 1.1" means the top one would protrude far above the box.

It's unfortunate that the access mounting holes for the SSD didn't line up, so I could only use screws on one side. Yes, I tried two different adapters with the same result. Even with that, I rate this product quite high since it is otherwise high quality material with excellent construction.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to read all the reviews. They are quite informative.
