Easy mod to add more 2.5" or 3.5" drives to a T20

Recommended Posts

So there I sat with drill bits and rivets, measuring and checking. I removed all the tabs from the top of the existing drive cage:

Then I wimped out and grabbed the industrial strength double sided tape and two nylon cable ties and there it is:

You should just buy some more Duck Tape. And it comes in all kinds of pretty colours and patterns, just like gift wrap :D

I bought one of these:

and two of these:

It looks like the two drive cage should fit on top of the lower drive cage.

If this all works, you could have:

Six 3.5" drives

Four 2.5" 9.5mm drives in the Orico

Two 2.5" 12.5mm drives or a ODD in the ODD bay

 

Where can i buy these cage und the two caddys? Do they have part numners?

The cage is KC230.

The sleds are U6436 or YJ221.

The sleds from the T20 do not fit.

Are there any equal alternatives? The price for the KC230 incl. shiping to germany is too high.
