    Enternal multibay hard drive enclosure with individual eSATA?

    I'm looking for a multiple hard drive case/enclosure for at least 5 hard drives, but that doesn't include any built in controllers or RAID devices. Just something that I can use with an existing eSATA port for each individual drive. Everything I come up with is either those single individual enclosures, or if it is multiple bays, its a rack setup with built in Raid, or a case with built in Raid.

    I'm hopeing I wont have to build a case myself or continue to use a 2PC 24/7.

    I've seen those internal ones, but unfortunetly because of my WC setup, I cannot use any of them. Hence why I'm asking for external cases.

    Although one could use it externally, I'd still need to rig up a PSU to power it, a case to house it, and some non-eSATA ports on brackets.

    no you would need to run 2 4 pin molex connectors and the SATA cables outside the case.

    instead.

    Look for JBOD if you dont want RAID.

    I bought mine at PC-Pitstop. They have many different configurations available and will suit your needs if not listed on the site (via email or phone call). Highly recommended.

    I have a 4-bay with hotswap case that has 4 individual eSATA connections on the back. I also have a 5-bay hotswap port multiplier enclosure.

    Never heard of a 5 bay one so far, but I've had my eye on this beauty for a little while now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817994037

    This what you're looking for? Four-drive SATA enclosure with four eSATA ports. This is the same thing, but with hotswap trays. 3-drive hotswap.
    This is for eight drives, but uses two 4x connectors. They have an adapter linked that connects your internal SATA ports to a PCI-slot bracket 4x connector.
