FatCage MB153SP-B
3 Bay EZ-Tray 3.5" SATA/SAS Hard Drive Hot-Swap Backplane Cage in 2x External 5.25" Bay
Product Details
  • Product introduction
    Introducing the FatCage MB153SP-B, a 3-in-2 SATA internal RAID backplane for 3.5” SATA hard drives. This is a lite version of the MB45X series by removing the monitoring features and reducing the overall cost, while keeping the same 3 year warranty and the core tray system for hot swapping and maintenance are kept for the best reliability in the market.
  • Slimmed Down Design
    The MB153SP-B has been redesigned to be a lighter module, while maintaining the same level of quality, build, and service you’d expect from an Icy Dock product. While the design has gone through some changes, the space saving design is still established. The backplane module allows up to 3 x 3.5” SATA III hard drives, while only consuming two external 5.25” bays. The module has also been redesigned for the type of power connector accepted. 15 pin SATA power is used to provide better accessibility for various host systems.
  • Efficient Cooling
    Along with being a lighter package, the cooling has been improved to provide better air flow to your hard drives. The MB153SP-B uses a full metal body that allows for the best heat dissipation possible in various types of applications. In addition, our enhanced direct air flow design allows the included cooling fan to raise its efficiency to cool down your hard drives, by closing and rerouting any side vents to route incoming air directly to the cooling fan, as well as sealing any vents around the fan for better cooling efficiency. In addition, the backplane logic PCB has larger vents in key areas to allow more air to flow into and exit the MB153SP-B, making it an ideal system to store and cool your hard drives.
  • The included 80mm cooling fan also can be easily replaced and maintained, as the unit it can be fully removed and replaced with aftermarket cooling fans of the same size. To expand the range of compatible fans, both 2 and 3 pin fan power ports are available and can be easily accessed.
  • Interchangeable EZ-Tray System
    The MB153SP-B uses an interchangeable EZ-Tray drive tray that is compatible with FatCage and DataCage enclosures include DataCage MB876SK-B (1x Drive), FatCage MB901SPR (2x Drive w/ HW RAID 1), and MB155SP-B (5x Drive). This allows you to continue using the same trays from these enclosures and exchange drives between systems without unmounting the drive from the tray.
  • Install *EZConvert 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter on the EZ-Tray allows you quickly swap out 2.5" SSD/HDD without using a tool or unscrewing drives. This allows for convenience and versatility and will save you time and money from having to buy a separate 2.5" drive enclosures or trays. (*EZConvert adapter needs to purchase separately)
