OVERVIEW

FatCage MB155SP-B - Five 3.5" in Three 5.25" Hot Swap SATA HDD Cage

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 three-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 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.

EZConvert

The FatCage MB155SP-B features a three-mode fan speed jumper which can be changed at will to control the fan speed easily. The three 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.

Reliable Hot Swap System

The MB155SP-B has kept the same interchangeable EZ-Tray used in MB45X, MB876, MB559, and MB561 series. This allows you to continue to use the same trays from these series, or our compatible external 3.5" models without any issues regarding switching to new designs. The EZ-Tray accepts most 3.5" SATA hard drives and is very easy to install / remove to the device in two steps – press the release button and pull or push the lever. The built-in rail system acts as the mechanism to ensure a fully secured connection every time. This allows for easy replacement in case of RAID failure or transporting of data.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: It works and looks great! Runs 5 drives on 1 sata power.

Cons: Missing some screws.
I had to remove a mb standoff and push it back so this can fit.
I had to bend metal tabs in the bay so this will fit.
Almost damaged some capacitors on my mb because this overlaps the mb in my case.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Works great with Freenas

Cons: Uses full width/height of drive bays.

Other Thoughts: This uses every inch of the drive bays so I had to do some re-engineering of the case this went into to remove the side rails so it would fit. Once it was locked in place because of the tight fit, it worked great!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Works as described. Easy to install. Hot swap. Adjustable fan speed. Keeps my drives cool.

Cons: Fan is loud on high setting. SATA Power wiring can get tight, but thats not really a con.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this

Pros: Easy installation and removal of drives.
5 Drives in the space of 3 5.25" drives.
No defects or problems with any of the ones I have used or installed for others
Adjustable fan speed
A drive activity light for each drive
Only three power connectors required for 5 drives

Cons: The drive rails have to be attached with screws and detached/moved when swapping out a drive making a drive swap take a minute or two.
Spare additional mounting rails are a little expensive.

Other Thoughts: The fifth SATA cable connector is located in a spot that is not visible in most cases with only one side panel off making it a little more of a challenge to plug the cable in. Either note the location and orientation of the cable plug before fastening this into the case or attach the SATA able before installation.

4 out of 5 eggsQuality Product

Pros: Sturdy construction. Intuitive layout with easy access to fan jumper while installed. Activity lights on the front are a nice touch.

Cons: I had to bend eight metal tabs on the 5.25" drive bays of my Cooler Master Cosmos II out of the way to fit this in. I had looked at images of the FatCage before purchasing and knew this might be necessary.

Fan is a little loud on high setting.

Other Thoughts: By default, the fan jumper is on the high setting. I moved it to the low setting and my drives still run at a comfortable 31C.

5 out of 5 eggsFat

Pros: Now I can fit more HDs in my case. Mounting trays are sturdy and have a solid feel. 92mm fan is modular and can be replaced if you so desire. Overall, this product appears very well made. Happy with my purchase.

Cons: What's not to like?

Other Thoughts: I think this is better for home user than the more expensive 4000 series models by the same company. Will see if the mail-in rebate is honored.
