Our Creed of the Mobile Rack
"The RH, SI, and SNT series are the world's three most popular manufactured Mobile Rack. RH, SI, and SNT are available from many vendors worldwide. Buying unbranded and unpopular Mobile Racks can lead your data storage into extinction with proprietary technology. Users often make the mistake in buying unbranded and unpopular Mobile Racks, only to find out shortly that they have been discontinued, or their supplier has gone out of business. Vendors make the mistake in selling the wrong Mobile Rack to users looking for species compatiblity."
Q: What are installation requirements?
A: An entire kit is to be installed in any available 5.25" bay, just like installing another CD-ROM, or an old 5.25" floppy drive! Cooling is important, poor air ventilation will turn your caddy into an oven, trapping the heat from the hard drive. This is specially noted for 7200rpm drives. You want adequate air flow of fresh air coming outside from the front of the desktop computer, sucked thru the air gap of the frame and caddy, and drawn out thru the rear of the computer. The fan found inside all power supplies should be drawing air from inside the case, out thru the rear of the computer.
Q: How do I know my hard drive isn't overheating?
A: Check your computer after being powered on for 30 minutes. The hard drive is allowed to be very warm, but not hot to the point so you can't touch it. You can remove the top cover of the sled. If this still doesn't solve it, you may need to install a secondary cooling fan to draw air out of the case. Most desktop cases have space to mount extra fans. If in doubt, always purchase the removable drive with the built-in cooling fan. You can also mount harddisk cooling fans on another empty 5.25" bay on top of the mobile rack, to draw cold air to sweep across the top of the harddisk drive in the sled.
