The 2.5" HDD/SSD 2-in-1 Optical Bay Bracket from HP converts your standard HP workstation 5.25" optical disk drive slot to a bay that holds two hard drives or solid state drives (sold separately). It supports up to 15mm small form factor hard disk drives and has a fixed-speed, 4500 rpm 12V fan for added thermal management of the drives.
Yes, this is compatible with the HP Z800 and Z820 workstations.

How loud is this fan? The Z820 is pretty quite unless under heavy loads, even with the large chassis fans running at 1500 RPM. I think this product would be perfect for my needs, but don't want to add a 4500 RPM jet engine to my system. Anybody have any experience with this add-on?

The fan on the carrier is fairly high-speed and noisy.
