Thread: Patriot Convoy XL inside a 5.25” hot sway bay

    Default Patriot Convoy XL inside a 5.25” hot sway bay

    Hello,

    Are the Patriot Convoy XL SATA connectors in the place as a 3.5” hard drive? The reason I ask is because I want to place a Patriot Convoy XL inside a 5.25” hot sway bay. The 5.25” hot sway bay I’m considering is a “Kingwin 3.5" SATA Internal Hot Swap Rack model KF-1000-BK”

    Here the link to the Kingwin 3.5" SATA Internal Hot Swap Rack: http://kingwin.com/products/cate/mob...kf_1000_bk.asp

    Since no inner tray is required for the KF-1000-BK, it should work with the Convoy XL provided the SATA connectors are in the same spot as a 3.5” hard drive. By doing this, I can remove the Convoy XL from my desktop and use it on my laptop.

    I wish Patriot offered something like this and maybe called it the Patriot Convoy XXL. I would buy it.

    Thank you all for an expedited response.
    Cheers,
    Alex

    The Patriot Convoy XL has been working beautifully inside a 5.25" Kingwin 3.5" SATA Internal Hot Swap Rack model KF-1000-BK for over a year.

    Thank you!
