Cases for internal hard drives?

I have a couple of Hitachi Jupiters...internal in a 2009 Mac Pro desktop which I'd like to take out and have be external drives...

partly, thinking of selling the Mac Pro, partly because I'd like the drives to be available to other macs I have.

I've had bad luck with drives sold AS externals; they seem to go bad very soon, like within a year. 2 years at best.

Some say the fanless cases are to blame...they cite heat as leading to premature failure of drives.

Can anyone recommend a make and model of hard drive case that will work with these drives and help them live long, productive lives?

thank you!
