Installing the iStar BPU-340 Hot Swap Cage

I’ve been wanting to add some more drives to my server but the internal drive trays are full. I was going to install some external enclosures but then realized that I had a giant gap under the 2 blu-ray optical bays. I wondered if I could re-purpose that space for hard drives. After some research I found that there were, indeed, 3×5.25 trays and enclosures that could serve to re-purpose the space. I ordered this bad boy the other day and installed it today. So far so good. Video coming shortly. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817121913 Just installed https://t.co/OPQKkgrXGL into my server from @NeweggCan Works like a charm – video to follow #DYI pic.twitter.com/gPwL3nXU97 — Aaron Puley (@bloggucation) November 8, 2015...

We teach…what’s your superpower? Good luck on your exams this week! @bloggucation pic.twitter.com/jlgTMXp3hk — Sir Allan MacNab SS (@SAM_LIONS) June 18, 2015...
