    Supermicro 3x 5.25" to 5x 3.5" HDD enclosure (sas or sata) ~ $106.25-$125 (new'ish)

    No comparison, Supermicro cage is so much better. I started using $38 each Kingwin KF-4001-BK 3.5" Internal Hot Swap Rack RAID- 4 Bay ( SATA only ). It has a 120MM fan, big and quiet fan. Kingwin is not bad for the $38 price
