Well, I only have one hard drive so and I would prefer not have one of my hard drive cages in just to hold one 3.5 inch drive. So, I was looking for a simple bracket that can adapt a hard drive to attach to a 120mm fan spot that I have. Does anyone know of a bracket like this?

Thanks!

Forget another fan!

Rules for HDDs and SSDs, especially when used in a RAID 0 array:
1. Backup
2. Backup
3. Backup dammit!

What?
If you only have a single HDD in your system, how are you backing it up?

Removable storage is how!

If your hard drive is spinning disk it's probably not best practice to mount a fan directly to it for vibration concerns

The product CHIZ linked is likea case you build around the fan so it has a HDD form factor. This way you can put it in a hard drive cage without using zip ties

Can you pay a picture of your case and Mark it up with Paint showing where you want the fan or more airflow?

Removable media, NAS, online backup, another system, many other ways to be backing up without having multiple hard drives in your system. Or maybe it's a system with no critical data on it, like just games?

I have a 120mm fan spot on the bottom of my case, I do not really want the fan on it to increase the airflow and keep it cooler, it is running just fine as is, I just want it to provide me with more open space by allowing me to remove my hard drive cages and give more air to my GPU. I do not even necessarily want it to mount to a fan, just mounting to the case where a 120mm fan would mount would be fine.
