Scythe Bay Rafter Review


The hard drive in a computer system is a crucial component for storing data and programs. In some systems, enthusiasts run out of placements for hard drives and so build make-shift mounts. Scythe has noticed this, which has lead to the Bay Rafter. The Scythe Bay Rafter allows a user to convert a 5.25” bay into a hard drive bay with support for a single HDD and a fan.



  • Optimal mounting of HDDs:
    With the Bay Rafter 3.5, standard 3.5″ hard drives can be mounted perfectly in the 5.25″ drive bays of a PC chassis.
  • Wide range of fans supported:
    The Bay Rafter 3.5 offers mounting options for all 3 common fan dimensions. The user has the choice to mount one 120 mm, 92 mm or 80 mm fan.
  • Flexible cooling options:
    With a fan selection, users can choose between maximum cooling or minimal noise level. By this, cooling to noise ratio can be optimized freely.
