Icy Dock Intros Unique Dual 2.5″ + Slimline Bay Internal Enclosure

Icy Dock unveiled its newest enclosure, the MB994IPO-3SB. It is designed to reorganize a 5.25-inch drive bay into two 2.5-inch hot-swap bays with SAS/SATA backplanes, and a slimline optical disc drive bay. Somebody likes bentos.

The design concept behind Icy Dock MB994IPO-3SB is painstakingly simple: use one to convert a 5.25-inch drive bay in your system into three bays: two 2.5-inch hot-swap SAS/SATA, and a slimline (notebook) optical drive. The three bays are wired out directly from behind, where power is drawn from Molex connectors, and a 40 mm fan ventilates the whole enclosure. 

Looks simple enough? The three drive bays of the Icy Dock MB994IPO-3SB come with detachable caddies, the drives (HDDs, SSDs, optical drives) have to be installed manually, and the process isn't exactly tool-free:

The Icy Dock MB994IPO-3SB is made almost entirely of metal. The front bezel, the body cover, and the hot-swap bay lids are made of SECC steel with matte black powder-coating. Each bay has its own activity LED. The enclosure could be a life-saver for those with slim form-factor (SFF) cases that ship with just one 5.25-inch drive bay, and have limited number of other bays. 

The Icy Dock  MB994IPO-3SB is slated for market release on 31st July. Its price is still under the wraps.
