So I have 2TB worth of 1TB harddrives from an old build. Right now they are just sitting on my desk but I would like to use them for steam games and such. As all I currently have is a 250gb ssd. Are there any good external casings to use them without a sata or direct power supply connection? Thanks :)

*I would put them in my build but the AIO Cooler took the room for them.

The simplest way forward is probably a USB3 enclosure. USB3 boxes with SATA internal connectors are a dime a dozen.

Why cant you put them back in the pc?

Looks promising, especially for backups. Ill take a longer look later, thanks :)
