EZConvert Pro MB982IP-1S-1
Enterprise Full Metal 2.5" to 3.5" SAS (SFF-8482) HDD & SSD Converter / Mounting kit for Internal 3.5" Drive Bay
Product Details
  • Product introduction
    In order to provide a pure 2.5” to 3.5” SAS conversion, Icy Dock is proud to introduce the new EZConvert Pro MB982IP-1S-1 2.5” SAS/SATA to 3.5” SAS Hard Drive / SSD Converter. The MB982IP-1S-1 is an addition to the already popular MB982 enterprise series, with an emphasis on industrial level SAS storage applications. This product is designed using the dimensions, connection locations, and mounting hole positions of a standard 3.5” SAS or SSD drive. The converter is designed specifically to be used for 2.5” SAS/SATA drives that are required in 3.5” SAS internal hard drive bays of tower and rackmount chassis, as well as with SAS backplanes or hot swap modules.

    The MB982IP-1S-1 utilizes a full metal design, thus creating the best environment to cool any 10K, 15K RPM SAS mechanical or enterprise SAS solid state drive, meanwhile, the rock solid construction is ideal for industrial, enterprise, and military related applications. Improving upon the MB982IP-1S, the MB982IP-1S-1 uses a completely standardized SAS connection in order to be fully compatible with various SAS backplanes. To accommodate various hard drive heights, we have included our Smart-Fit Technology, allowing security of the drive whether it is a thinner 7mm or a thicker 15mm.

    The MB982IP-1S-1 also includes most of the features that you already expect from an Icy Dock product: an effortless installation process without any tools or screws, plenty of ventilation slots to keep any drive used running cool and efficient, and a unique and stylish design. The top, front and rear allow exceptional airflow, and a special vent on the bottom gives the user visual confirmation that the drive has made a secure connection.
  • Note: For potential enterprise applications with SATA controllers and backplanes, please see the MB982SP-1S.

Q:What is the difference between the MB982SP-1S and the MB982IP-1S-1 model?

A: The difference is the MB982IP-1S-1 supports SAS and SATA hard drives, while the MB982SP-1S supports SATA hard drives only.

Q:What is the difference between MB982IP-1S-1 & MB382IP-3B?

A: The MB982IP-1S-1 is based off the MB882 series design but added SAS hard drive or SSD support and utilizes a full metal design creating a better environment for cooling, as well as giving it a rock solid construction ideal for industrial, enterprise, and military applications.

The MB382IP-3B is a new design based off the MB982IP-1S-1 but with added open air design with exceptional cooling.

Q:Will this converter allow me to fit my SSD or 2.5" HDD into a 3.5" bay?

A: The MB982IP-1S-1 is a 2.5" to 3.5" hard drive converter. It will fit any standard 2.5" SATA or SAS hard drive or SSD into any standard 3.5" hard drive bay.

Q:Will using this converter affect performance in any way?

A: This converter will not affect performance in any way because the device interface is essentially a bypass. It will be like the hard drive is directly connected to the motherboard.

Q: Does the MB982IP-1S-1 support Samsung 840 series SSDs?

A: Yes, this converter will support all 7-15mm 2.5" SAS or SATA hard drive or SSD (SAS host required).

Q: Does the MB982IP-1S-1 support SATA III hard drives or SSD with SATA III interface?

A: The MB982IP-1S-1 support SATA I / II / III hard drives or SSD with a SATA I / II / III interface. But it require SAS host (motherboard or controller).

Q: Does MB982IP-1S-1 support the new SATA 3.3 Power Disable feature (PWDIS)?

A:The MB982IP-1S-1 does not support the SATA 3.3 PWDIS feature. If you install the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS in MB982IP-1S-1, the drive will not spin, and the system won't detect the drive. See the list below for known SATA HDD/SSD with the PWDIS feature.

Note: the SAS hard drive or SSD does not use the Pin 3 of SATA power connector for PWDIS feature and compatible with MB982IP-1S-1.


While we recommend to avoid using the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS, you can use the methods below to disable the PWDIS feature physically if you already purchased the drive:


Method 1 – Using the Molex to SATA adapter or cable to disconnect the power to Pin 3 of the SATA power connector.

Method 2 – Placing Kapton tape on Pin 1-3 of the SATA power connector to isolate the 3.3V power, as shown below.
