I have several OWC, Mercury Elite
Dual Bay Hard Drive Enclosures.
Philip Arcario had also used these
enclosures in the past. He has had
problems with their fans, so he
replaced them with aftermarket
fans.

Well, both of my fans have also failed.
Your supposed to return the enclosures
to OWC so they can replace them under
warranty. The problem is, thats not
going to work for me.

OWC is sending both fans to me free
of charge.

PHILIP, if you read this post and still
have the link for those replacement
fans, could you post it for me so I can
buy a few to keep on hand.

BTW, are you still using those enclosures
with the replacement fans? How are
the replacement fans holding up?

Thanks!
