  • Weight - 34 lbs with drives and power supply


Compact drive storage system holds up to eight 3.5" hard drives. Easy way to add large amounts of storage to your media system. Multiple cases can be stacked on top of each other for more capacity as your media collection grows. An optional 3U (5.25") one-piece rack mount faceplate is available for mounting into standard 19" racks.


Passive cooling design transfers heat into massive thick-walled outer case. The thick aluminum used on all panels provides a "highway" for effective heat transfer to the entire case.
Rear panel features two baffled air inlets to allow air to flow in freely while blocking sound waves from escaping. A standard ATX power supply is mounted in the center of the case. The power supply fan is the only fan used for added cooling. Two SCSI-1/Centronics sized port openings on either side of the power supply allow a variety of drive connection options.

With the top panel removed, the drives can be seen inside. Drive orientation was optimized for the most effective heat transfer and air flow. Each module floats on special isolation pads designed to completely eliminate vibration from being transfer to the outer case.

Air inlets are designed for laminar flow over all the drives for very effective cooling. The inner drive modules are held very close to the outer case shell suspended only by the isolation pads. With the opposing plates right next to each other, heat is transmitted by radiation to the outer shell without any mechanical contact.


The inner drive module floats on isolation pads to dampen vibrations from the drives. The isolation pads are contained within  pockets machined into the top and bottom panels. The small pads dampen vibrations from being transmitted. With isolation pads on both sides of the chassis, the heavy assembly can float within the outer case.


Extremely durable pads are specially designed for this application. The size and firmness are finely tuned to the weight of the drive module. The animated picture above shows how the material swallows up the screwdriver blade, yet returns to its normal state immediately with no compression set. This ensures the pad will not lose its shape and effectiveness over time.
