Hello,
I cannot search 2.5 and 5.25 words in forum because they are too short, so I need to do a new post to ask.

I would like to buy an hotswap bay for 2.5 hard disks so I can put 4 2.5 hdds in one 5.25 bay.

I am worried of the noise of little fans that are on many of these adapters.

Has someone tried one of these and so can help me?

Thanks in advance for any reply!

Mario

the 40mm fans will probably be loud. either buy one without fans; or be prepared to disable them, or swap them out for something like the noiseblocker 40mm fans

The problem is I am not finding any hotswap adapter without fans.

i only knew one was out there, but checking the reviews, build quality was poor.

best bet is just unplugging the fans.
