ICY DOCK feedback

I decided to tidy up at least one of my test machines.
ICY DOCK is due to arrive tomorrow, this model;

I look forward to tidying up the ‘daisy chain’ SSD mess in at least one machine. (lack of discipline on my part :face_with_monocle:)
I look forward to the ‘hot swap’ type feature of quickly exchanging SSDs.

Is anybody in the community using similar?
The unit comes with a fan that I guess is for HDD drives.
Any reason to have the fan running for SSD only?

All feedback most welcome.

@mrneilypops , looks very interesting, wonder if one can hook this up to a lappy.

@altman
The ‘ICY DOCK’ model is designed for a standard machine with 5.25 inch drive bay.
I believe the ‘ICY CUBE’ might suit your requirements;

I hate to admit it but wasn’t even aware of it… Very, very cool.

My two cents, I would despite the low heat signature of an SSD until your sure about it’s reliability but I’m pretty conservative with this sorta thing.

@anon37345411
Great feedback…looking forward to tomorrow…keep you posted.
My understanding of SSD power consumption is that it is quite low and I have never made any allowance for SSD cooling in my silent rigs.
OK for the CPU I have a cooler about the size of a house brick…all OK for the last 5 years on 2 machines total silence :shushing_face:

Sorry to hear that man. I have ran into that situation with them before. But as @altman said, it could be a matter of supply. Sometimes, it could be other concerns, like a major weather event for example.

@sevenday4
I have morphed into ‘Grumpy Old Man’ mode.
I was told delivery was delayed (thinking tomorrow onwards)
So, I go out to do some shopping and on return to ‘mrneilypops towers’ find there was an attempted delivery. :angry:

EDIT: Collection from local post office tomorrow…getting there…

Oh no! Now that sucks! We’ll allow you to be an grumpy old fart today only. But tomorrow…:grin:

@mrneilypops . Wholy cow ! Why they didn t leave the package at your door !

@sevenday4
Tomorrow is looking brighter already :grin:

@altman
local postal service are not keen on the option of leaving packages on doorsteps. I know you can request this option on Amazon but it will not follow through here with the local postal delivery service.

@altman has a point, why didn’t they leave it at the door, unless of course you told them not to…

@mrneilypops, Ah each places have their own ways of doing things I guess.

Issues with packages being stolen I’m guessing. Here this little town in Oregon, we don’t have that issue. We have packages left at our door step all the time. I guess we’re fortunate here. Also, it may depend on what is being shipped and its value. :thinking:
