Using the 1TB VelociRaptor in 2.5" Hotswap cage

Hi Guys,

I was wanting to know if we can use the WD VelociRaptor in a 3.5" Hotswap 2U / 3U enclosure like supermicro or chenbro.

I was wanting to know if we can use the WD VelociRaptor in a 2.5" Hotswap 2U / 3U enclosure like supermicro or chenbro. (but for this we will need to remove the attached 2.5 to 3.5" adaptor and heatsink.

a.) is this safe. ?

b) does this void warranty.

thinking of using 1TB raptor drives to build a storage using nexenta. any comments…

Hi yes removing the icepack to make it a 2.5 drive voids the warranty. The only way a enclosure would work is if it has fans inside to cool the drives.
