FatCage MB155SP-B
5 Bay EZ-Tray 3.5" SATA Hard Drive Hot-Swap Backplane Cage in 3x External 5.25" Bay
Product Details
  • Product introduction
    Introducing the FatCage MB155SP-B, a 5-in-3 SATA 6Gbps hot swappable internal RAID backplane cage. This is the lite version of the MB45X series by removing the monitoring features, increasing the cooling performance, 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.
  • Maximum Space Saving & Reliable Build
    The MB155SP-B built to be a lighter module, while more importantly 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 a massive 5 x 3.5” SATA III hard drives, while only consuming three external 5.25” bays.

    The FatCage has also been redesigned for the type of power connector accepted. 15 pin SATA power is used to provide better accessibility for most modern host systems. They are also compatible with cables with metal latches to improve security when installed into a system.
  • High-Octane Airflow
    Along with being a lighter package, the cooling has been redesigned to provide the utmost airflow to your hard drives. The FatCage uses a full metal body that allows for the effective heat dissipation possible in various types of applications. Meanwhile, our enhanced direct air flow design allows the included a large 92mm cooling fan to raise its efficiency to cool down your hard drives, by closing and rerouting most vents to route incoming air directly to the cooling fan. There are dual exhaust vents on the top and bottom to additionally help keep drives temperatures while improve airflow.
  • In addition, the backplane logic PCB has larger cut outs in key locations to allow more air to flow into and exit the MB155SP-B, making it an ideal system to store and cool your hard drives.
  • Modularized Cooling System
    The included 92mm cooling fan is fully modularized for the most hassle free experience of replacing and maintaining and is compatible with most 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 are conveniently located for great accessibility. This provides the user the most flexible options available and freedom desired.

    The FatCage MB155SP-B features a 3 mode fan speed jumper which can be changed at will to control the fan speed easily. The 3 modes include: High, Low and Off with respective speeds of 100%, 60% and 0% relative to maximum output. The settings can be simply changed by removing the jumper and relocating into the desired setting.
  • 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)

FAQ

Q: Does MB155SP-B support the new SATA 3.3 Power Disable feature (PWDIS)?

A: The MB155SP-B does not support the SATA 3.3 PWDIS feature. If you install the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS in MB155SP-B , 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 MB155SP-B .

 

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.

 

Molex to SATA Adapter   Molex to SATA Cable

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