Running out of ways to put more drives in my tower. Does anyone have a better solution than this to stack them higher?

  1. The better DIY way is Aluminum U profiles. Dunno if it’s in inches but in Europe there you can buy 30mm big u profiles with 2mm thick walls making the inner space 26mm where a HDD fits perfectly in. put it all on rubber and voila no vibrations. Have made a fileserver that way. Still running after building it more than 7 years ago.


  2. 60TB, ZFS with three mirrored vdevs, and a DIY DAS from DataHoarder

    I bought an empty server chassis that still had the SAS backplane and I hooked it up to my PC

  3. Used two of these metal rails cut to size from homedepot:

    [https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rubbermaid-E5-72-in-Zinc-Upright-for-Wood-or-Wire-Shelving-FG4B9200ZINC/100177025](https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rubbermaid-E5-72-in-Zinc-Upright-for-Wood-or-Wire-Shelving-FG4B9200ZINC/100177025)

    ​

    Had to drill out some of the spacers but i had 8 drives stacked in a gutted Optiplex 3020. I used rubber spacers on the inside to help with vibrations.

  4. Buy 5.25 to 3.5 covert thingy (forgot what they are called)

  5. I bought a barebones tower that housed 9 5.25″ bays. Then bought three 5×3.5″ hot swap caddy backplanes to fit in it, each with fan & ducting for cooling. Then added a used 900W power supply and synchronizer linked to my server. I then ran external SAS/SATA cables to a PCIe slot cover that had external to internal sas cable converter. Then routed all those to the backplanes. For about $500 I had a 15 drive hot swap chassis to handle any 3.5″ drives I wanted to add. They were all driven off extra channels on my hardware RAID controllers.

  6. you could connect to them OUTSIDE your tower.

  7. New case? Fractal Meshify 2 XL can support up to 18x 3.5″ bays & 5x 2.5″ SSDs.

  8. Move to a used supermicro chassis. You’ll be set for ages.

  9. The solution would be to buy an actual chassis that supports your use case and stop clownin around

  10. I bought 6 of these (12 bays): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GY2B3WP Put them all together and used cable ties to mount them in my case. Worked surprisingly well and is pretty clean.

  11. Idk how attached you are to you actual case but if you’d consider changing cases, there are double sized cases (usually called “cubes” or something?) That can fit basically two full ATX systems. Your system on one side, wall of drives in the other side. Wham, you have more real estate.

  12. I use these [Phanteks stackable brackets](https://www.amazon.com/Phanteks-Stackable-Bracket-Cases-PH-HDDKT_03/dp/B07GY2B3WP) that can be clipped together for upward of four drives. I then add a Noctua fan with zip ties to keep each stack cool, and rest them on top of [anti-vibration pads](https://www.amazon.com/Diversitech-MP4-V-Anti-Vibration-Pack/dp/B00BVEMLR4). It’s a bit messy, but I’ve been able to fit another 8-12 drives inside my case this way.

    The other option would be to look at a DAS (direct attached storage) chassis connected via a SAS card with an external port.

  13. 3d print a custom holder that’s stronger than that?

  14. Kinda to piggy back this thread. I have 5 hdd I need to add to my case. Should I use a SATA Card? And which one? Or, should I get a 5 Bay tray with separate psu?

  15. Something that vertically loads like [this]([https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/chassis/4U/946/SC946ED-R2KJBOD](https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/chassis/4U/946/SC946ED-R2KJBOD)) server from SuperMicro. Pre-Covid, a guy in my office set up something like this using the plastic that hard drives ship in as the tray and sata cables in their prospective places.

  16. I ordered this thing last week. I plan on screwing the bottom of it to a piece of plywood and putting rubber feet on it. The cables from the hba card will literally come out of the sideless computer case with my server hardware inside of it. It’ll look like some old ass computer shit, but will work like a charm.

  17. buy an extra case with its own PSU and route the sata cables in to the original case.

  18. Yes. Use cheap iron or alu “U” profiles ( for construction etc) and drill a mounting holes in them.

    They have great surface area and more importantly, mass.

    Drives vibrate and stacks of them screw each others head positions through vibration. This causes all sorts of problems on drives.

    They also like to be kept cool, so have a vent in front of the group at some small distance (so that its vibrations don’t couple to drives).

    Don’t screw with your data in such moronic ways.

  19. Dirt cheap enclosures scattered around the ground with a fan here and there.

    Poverty hoarding is my specialty.

  20. wont that stacking increase the vibration which is not good for over health of the drives?

  21. Considate it by replacing current drives with higher capacity ones?

  22. Here’s the best idea I’ve found so far. It’s not quite what you’re looking for, but it might be what you actually want. TL;DR: use a second case

    Dirty DAS, done dirt cheap! from DataHoarder

  23. I once had an accident years ago where a fan died and then all the HDDs overheated voiding the warranties because I stacked them too close on top of each other. Make sure that you have redundant fans or space them out more.

    And connect the screws with metal, not just plastic. Solves partly the heat issue and also gives you a nice electrial ground connection.

  24. Seems like a good excuse to get yourself a 3D printer. Better excuse than I had and I still love my Ender 3

  25. I’d probably fabricate something… get some reasonably thick stainless stock (18 gauge?) and drill holes for your harddrives. If you have a printer you could make a jig to make sure you drill your holes with the right spacing. You could use this exact same configuration but stack them higher with a more rigid material than printed plastic. You could also integrate the metal bracketing I’m talking into your case’s frame with some self tapping screws.
