EZConvert MB705M2P-B

M.2 NVMe SSD PCIe 4.0 to 2.5" U.2 SSD Converter/Mounting Adapter
Product Details
  • Product introduction
    ICY DOCK's EZConvert MB705M2P-B converts an M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD into the exact dimensions and port locations as a standard 2.5-inch U.2 (SFF-8639) NVMe SSD without using any tools or screws for drive installation. The MB705M2P-B can be installed anywhere that accepts a bare 2.5-inch U.2 NVMe drive, such as a U.2 backplane, 2.5" mounting bracket, or ICY DOCK U.2 NVMe removable enclosures/mobile racks. The sturdy aluminum heat sink housing protects the delicate M.2 circuit board from bumps and drops, and work perfectly with the included thermal pad for optimal heat dissipation to keep your drive running cool, even under heavy load.
  • Removable Design
    Because M.2 SSDs are not designed to be frequently swap, their connectors are very delicate, typically rated for only 250 insertion/removal cycles. The EZConvert MB705M2P-B has a durable U.2 connector rated for 10,000 insertion/removal cycles, allows you to add, remove, and replace drives without putting any wear on the internal connector.
  • Perfect Compatibility
    EZConvert MB705M2P-B accepts any 30mm-80mm M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (2230 / 2242 / 2260 / 2280) and gives it the exact same dimensions, port locations, and screw-hole locations as a standard 9.5mm U.2 NVMe SSD.
  • Tool-less installation
    The 1-piece heat sink lid snaps on and off without screws or tools, revealing the drive bay for easy installation, removal, and replacement in only seconds.
  • The adjustable M.2 locker slides to accommodate all standard M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD drive lengths, including 2230 (30mm), 2242 (42mm), 2260 (60mm), and 2280 (80mm). The locker clips into the SSD screw hole to secure the drive without screws, saving you the hassle of dealing with tiny easy-to-lose screws while protecting your drive from vibration and movement damage.
  • (1).Adjust the M.2 locker to your desired M.2 NVMe SSD length.
    (2).Insert the M.2 NVMe SSD into the M.2 connector.
    (3).Press down the M.2 NVMe SSD.
    (4).A “click” sound will be heard once the M.2 NVMe SSD is secured in place.
  • Because the MB705M2P-B uses the standardized 2.5-inch U.2 form-factor, it can be installed into any U.2 backplane, 2.5-inch mounting bracket, or ICY DOCK U.2 NVMe removable enclosures/mobile racks such as MB699VP-B for multi-drives or MB601VK-B / MB601VK-1B for a single drive.
  • Packed with Features
    The dual-function full-metal lid protects delicate M.2 SSDs from bumps and drops. The aluminum lid also acts as a heat sink to keep NVMe drives at safe temperatures, even under heavy load.
  • The included thermal paste sticker can be attached on to the underside of the full-metal lid for increased heat dissipation.
  • For additional cooling performance, the bottom air vent can be cut out to make room for an M.2 heat sink, or for additional air flow.
  • The MB705M2P-B supports the full NVMe bandwidth specification of up to 64Gbps, letting you take full advantage of the fastest M.2 NVMe SSDs available.
  • Pair it with the USB 3.2 to U.2 NVMe SSD Reader (EZ-Adapter MB931U-1VB)
    The EZ-Adapter MB931U-1VB is compatible with EZConvert MB705M2P-B and works with any USB ports, giving you the utmost flexibility of accessing M.2 NVMe On-the-Go.

Q: Can you recommend an add-on card that works with MB705M2P-B?

A: The following add-on cards are compatible with MB705M2P-B. We highly recommend using the official cable for the best compatibility.


Note:We highly recommend purchasing the cable from a local reseller that you trust. However, if you have a hard time finding the cables, PC-Pitstop is our long term partner, and they are able to ship worldwide.


We are currently certifying our NVMe enclosure with the major add-on card manufacturers. We will be adding compatible add-on cards to the list.

You can click here to report a compatible add-on card/cable. If you want to check the compatibility of add-on card(s) that are not on the list, please click here.

Q: I'm using Intel/Broadcom Tri-Mode HBA and RAID cards with the MB705M2P-B, but the drives do not show up in my system?

A: The issue is caused by RAID card manufacturers using a different pinout for Tri-Mode cards than is typically used for U.2 connections. When using these cards with U.2 NVMe drives and cables, a U.2 enabler cable must be used for compatibility, which reverts the pinout back to standard U.2 specifications. For more information, please click here.

Q: The system does not detect the M.2 SSD I installed in the ICY DOCK enclosure. What should I do?

A: Since the M.2 SSD is not designed for hot-swapping, we highly recommend powering off the device/system before inserting or removing an M.2 SSD. If the system is still unable to detect the drive, follow the steps below to scan for new hardware manually:



Windows 11 / Windows10 / Windows 8 – In the search box on the taskbar, type device manager, and click it from the menu. Once the device manager window pops up, right-click on the disk drive icon, and click scan for hardware changes.


Windows 7 – Right-click on the computer icon on the desktop, select properties, click device manager, right-click on the disk drive icon and then click scan for hardware changes.

If the issues mentioned above have been ruled out and the system still fails to detect the M.2 SSD, it is possible that specific system components do not support the utilization of U.2 SSDs. Please ensure the motherboard's connection interface and adapter card are compatible with U.2 SSD operation.

*U.2 SSDs and U.3 SSDs are distinct SSD types. Components designed exclusively for U.3 SSD usage do not necessarily support U.2 SSDs.

Q:I'm getting error messages after installing the MB705MP-B into my Dell PowerEdge server. What steps can I take?

A: Begin by ensuring that the M.2 SSD used is an NVMe version and that it is properly installed in the MB705M2P-B, with the M.2’s gold fingers fully engaged with the connector of the MB705. Also, confirm that the MB705M2P-B is securely connected to the system and check that your BIOS, iDRAC, and CPLD versions are the latest. If the problem continues, please reach out to our support team for further assistance at tech@icydock.com.

Q:Is the MB705M2P-B compatible with the U.2 SSD slots/bays of my Dell PowerEdge server?

A: Absolutely. The MB705M2P-B is meticulously designed to the precise form factor of standard U.2 SSDs, which includes the dimensions, connector placement, and size, ensuring full compatibility with U.2 SSD environments. Should you encounter any issues with the fit or connection, our support team is ready to assist at tech@icydock.com
