VelociRaptor mounting bracket for 3.5" or 5.25"?

Hi all,

 

I saw a thread from last year referencing an IcyDock chassis to mount a Raptor, but as we all know, the form factor for the Raptor is too tall to fit.  I've spent some time looking for a mounting kit to accomplish this, but without much luck.

 

I'm not stuck on IcyDock, but does anybody recommend a mounting bracket for the 2.5" VelociRaptor? Or can the chassis itself be purchased directly from WD or a preferred vendor?

 

Thanks,

Ben

The 2.5-inch WD VelociRaptor is enclosed in a backplane-ready 3.5-inch enterprise-class mounting frame with a built-in heat sink that keeps the drive cool when installed in high-performance desktop chassis. This mounting frame is the WD IcePack, designed by WD for the HLHX and HLFS models and not available separately.
