I need a 3-2 drive cage

currently have an icy dock MB453SPF-B  installed - and want to add another cage in the space available in my case .

 

I am not sure about another icy dock - as under extreme load the discs hit 40 C ......

are there any alternative that users can recommend?

 

I have looked at 2 a Norco SS-300 - which looks to have been recently discontinued but still available on ebay - it only has a 60 mm fan - and it is enclosed in the cage

and a thermaltake RC2300101A http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817998145

 

are there any other good ones out there?

no one has any opinions?

The more I look at the thermaltake - I like - the drive cage has a bottom to it that will help in heat dissipation - and a 2 level fan - up to 3000 rpm - it may be a winner - is there some thing about this I am not seeing?

I've been using Kingwin 3in2's and 4in3's for awhile with no problems... that is until I bought a mess of Samsung 2TB drives... they're 1/16" shorter than a Seagate and don't quite make a good connection.  Had to tape a piece of 1/16" lexan to the front of 16 drives!  :o

I don't have any 2TB, but my smaller Sammys appear to be the same length as my WD drives.  In any case, my iStarUSA trayless cages have substantial springs on the door to push the drives into place - I don't think that 1/16 would cause a problem.
