Hot swap drive cage for M8

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I know there are a lot of hot swap HDD cages out there but I am posting here because I want to make sure that I can get something that works well with the M8 and also is close to the same caliber of the caselabs cases.

Anyone have any recommendations? Newegg has quite a few really nice looking ones.

My computer is being used as a gaming rig/server/gaming server as I am running steam in-home as well as kodi on my firetv.

The M8 is tucked neatly into my desk and hart to get to for access to the hard drive cages unless I pull everything out.

Also, does anyone know of a SSD Hot swap bay worth using?

It looks like there are a lot of units online that also have built in fans but I want to try and avoid anything that is going to be noisy.

My computer is in our bedroom and I dont like keeping my wife up and sometimes my wife is even up late playing a game as I go to bed.

Any recommendations would be helpful!

I don't have a bay or a case labs case at the moment, but the IcyDock Tough Armor series gets good reviews, is made of aluminum, and looks like it would match nicely with the M8

Some bays may be difficult to mount in standard 5.25 slots ... but CaseLabs have you covered here ... get some of these and you will be golden.
