    Scythe has launched today the Scythe Bay Rafter 3.5, an useful adapter that allows users to mount a 3.5-inch hard disk drive into a 5.25-inch drive bay of a PC chassis. Optionally, users can attach either a 80mm, 92mm or a 120 mm fan to Scythe Bay Rafter 3.5 for additional cooling of the mounted drive. The Bay Rafter 3.5 is made out of plastic and takes one 5.25-inch drive bay when used without fan or two 5.25-inch drive bays when an additional fan is used.

    Not bad, but it could be better if it had some rubber around, to attenuate vibrations not only from the HDD but also from the extra cooling fan. Plastic doesn't seem to give a quality feeling either... although it helps to reduce final price. Decisions, decisions...

    Don't know how it would be possible, but it should have 2.5" mount on the other side. That was you could mount your 3.5-inch HDD with cooling or 3.5-inch HDD with 2.5inch SDD on the other side.
