Saw this on some other forums and I was curious about the brand of these exact hotswap bays. I think it's 2x 3in2 hotswap bays, but I'm not so sure about what brand or model these bays in particular are.
those are athena's... Newegg Linky Here. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817119403)

Thanks man. Anyone have an idea if these would work with tooless 5.25 bays (coolermaster scout specifically)?

im sure they will work just fine
iStarUSA makes the exact same ones
wow, those are the same exact ones! like re-brands....
Edit: more expensive though...
yes a little more and no better. the athena tech's are decent and solid. i used them for a while. the fan is a little loud. i am not sure about the fan size of 3in2 but the 4in3 has a 80mm fan. if you feel like modding, this can be resolved.
i actually took the fan out completely and screwed a 80-to-120 fan adapter on and then added a 120mm fan. good flow and less noise.
the original fan is not easily replaced because it's only 80mmx20mm not standard 25mm and does not use the standard 3pin molex you usually find on fans.
the latches are lockable which is a nice feature to prevent accidental pull out of the drives.

They also make hotswap bays that fit in 3 5.25" slots that hold 4 or 5 HDs. It might fit your needs better.
