Does this adapter have screw-holes to screw it into the tray?
Just my 2 cents - not knowing this very specific adapter (but being notified of our original post):

1. This drive is SAS - and thus probably not relevant for laptops (but perhaps the "laptop" in the post was a mistake??)

2. They do get warm if not cooled (actually the will become "too hot"!) - so if in a case and/or laptop with limited airflow it is quite important that the adapter can transfer heat... Not only touching the drive, but perhaps even with some heat transfer medium (tape, paste, whatever)..

In my server I printed a bracket for another adapter - that holds 2*4 drive directly in the path of airflow - they rarely go above 40C, but without proper cooling they easily reach their threshold of 65C..

What are dimensions of this assembly; how many 5.25 slots I need to free up ?
For those who tried to retrofit this IBM 8x 1.8" SSD-Cage incl. Backplane System x3690 X5 - 59Y6222 into standard case, will be bit difficult; dimensions of this assembly are 7cm x 7cm x 10cm . I thought it would cool these very hot disks.
