flexiDOCK MB024SP-B

Tray-less 4x 2.5" SAS/SATA SSD/HDD Mobile Rack for 5.25" Bay
Product Details
  • The flexiDOCK MB024SP-B is a tray-less four-bay drive enclosure that allocates 2.5" SAS/SATA drives to the frontal 5.25" drive bay of any computer system for easy drive-swapping and accessibility. It supports four 2.5" SAS/SATA hard drives or solid-state drives up to 9.5mm height and utilizes the SATA III 6Gbps transfer speed.
  • Tray-less & Tool-less Drive Swap
    With the simplistic tray-less docking style design, installing or removing the drives has never been more straightforward. Simply slide in 2.5" hard drives (HDDs) or solid-state drives (SSDs) to quickly access your data and safely ejecting by pulling the drive out manually.
  • Trim off the Fan, Going Stealth
    The exhaust fan is purposely removed on MB024SP-B to reduce any high pitch noise produced by the fan. It is designed to emit minimal sound interference and is suitable for any low acoustic required environment.
  • Additionally, by allowing additional free space in the rear of the unit, MB024SP-B is shorter in depth and can fit into most computer chassis where space constraint is critical.
  • Maximum Passive Cooling Design
    More than 100 ventilation holes/cutouts are strategically placed throughout the enclosure and backplane for maximum passive cooling effect. In addition, the honeycomb air vents located at the front and rear of the device work perfectly with the computer's cooling fan, quickly remove trapped heat around the drives and keep your 2.5" drives running at optimal temperatures.
  • Pack with Features
    The flexiDOCK MB024SP-B has four easy-to-read individual soft blue drive status LEDs to indicate the drive status - a solid blue light indicates a drive is inserted and has power, a flashing blue light indicates the drive is in use.
  • To ensure solid connectivity between the device and system, the flexiDOCK MB024SP-B supports both 7-pin SATA data and 15-pin SATA power cables with locking latches to avoid accidental disconnections. Once the cables are connected, they will lock into place.
  • The metal outer chassis provides a long lifespan and superior protection to the drives. In addition, the robust ABS plastic top, front, and interior structure offer excellent air ventilation and drive stability system without sacrificing strength.
  • Optional: M.2 SATA SSD to 2.5” Form Factor Adapter | EZConvert MB703M2P-B
    If you are looking to use M.2 SATA SSD with the flexiDOCK MB024SP-B, pair it with our EZConvert MB703M2P-B, M.2 SSD to 2.5" form factor adapter. It features a tool-less adjustable M.2 locker to secure your drives in place. Click here to visit the product page.

Q: Does MB024SP-B support the new SATA 3.3 / SAS 3.0 Power Disable feature (PWDIS)?

A: The MB024SP-B does not support the SATA 3.3 / SAS 3.0 PWDIS feature. If you install the SATA/SAS HDD/SSD with PWDIS in MB024SP-B , the drive will not spin, and the system won't detect the drive. See the list below for known SATA/SAS HDD/SSD with the PWDIS feature.


While we recommend to avoid using the SATA/SAS 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.


Molex to SATA Adapter   Molex to SATA Cable

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

Please contact tech@icydock.com if the problem persists.

Q: The mounting screws for the device seem to be too short to secure the device onto my system, what should I do?

A: For computer cases that have a thick metal sheet, the included mounting screws (M3*2.5L) may not fully secure the device. Please use longer screws (M3*4L) to secure the device or contact us at tech@icydock.com for replacement screws.
