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.

EZConvert

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.

3 out of 5 eggsFatcage is 1/2" too fat!

Pros: - works fine
- great design

Cons: - Either cut slots into the sides of this device or figure out some other way to trim a 1/2" off its width!
- I have at least 7 different makes/models of PC chassis at my place of work. NONE of these chassis would accept this fatcage UNLESS I bent their built-in slide rails in the 5.25" bays, into a flat, vertical position.
The unit is just too wide! Manufacturer should have stopped at 4 bays and made this unit so it COULD fit into a standard ATX computer chassis, either mid-tower or full-tower.

Other Thoughts: Functionally and aesthetically a nice device.

Points off for the fact it just won't fit into standard PC chassis WITHOUT some chassis 5.25" bay area modifications.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Works Great. I now have 5x 2TB HDDs.
My case is running cooler now.

Cons: Had to bend the rails in the 5.25" drive bays up out of the way.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great (with case mod in Antec 900)

Pros: This cage does exactly what it is supposed to. Provides a 5 hot-swap bays. Had to modify the case a bit (bent the 5.25 guides down) but other than that it works perfectly. Not going to take an egg off for that. Currently have it connected with 3 of the motherboard sata connections and one from an add-in sata card, and it plays nicely with the combination

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I should have put a rush fee on my shipping, still waiting for the raid card that I purchased with it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product / great company

Pros: 5 drives in 3 5.25" bays. Manages drive temps well. Adjustable fan speed. Solid drive carriage/sleds. Combo power and activity lights. Hot-plug support. Works with only a single SATA power connection.

Cons: 92mm fan is noisy @ full speed. A bit pricey when compared to some other options.

Other Thoughts: Excellent customer service: honored warranty even after time-period elapsed.

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfied

Pros: 5 drives in 3 drive bay slot. Only requires 3 Sata power inputs. Fan relatively quiet and good air flow. Metal levers on drive trays feel sturdy.

Cons: no grooves on the sides to account for the 3 case shelves require modifying a perfectly good case (bending rails out of the way). Drive bays only accept flat head screws or get caught on insertion (non generic HD mount screws). No dust filters..

Other Thoughts: interesting unit, but the lack of grooves requiring case mod is an oversight. My case was new and bending those rails was painful. Results look great. This was for a media server I built, and the ability to quickly swap drives as they show signs of failure was the goal. Drives mount vertically which I think is smart, and probably means less heat on the drives sandwiched in the middle. The use of non traditional HD mount screws is somewhat annoying but it ships with plenty. For my case I chose the ZALMAN MS800 Plus which already has a 3 drive anterior swap system

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great and is more sturdy than the trayless enclosures

Pros: I've got both one of these EZ-Tray enclosures and a trayless enclosure in my home server which is in a norco 450b case.

I use the EZ-Tray enclosure for the more permanent drives (the main raid array) and then use the trayless enclosure for the backup drives that get taken off site.

The Trayless enclosure is nice in that I can rotate through drives without having to swap the trays between them, but the EZ-Tray enclosure feels much more solid when you put the drives in.

If you do not need to be constantly swapping between drives I'd highly recommend the EZ-Tray enclosure over the Trayless.

I've got 4 wd red drives running in this enclosure and so far I've had no heat issues. All 4 drives usually run in the upper 30 degree celsius range in a 72-73 degree basement.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsDoes its job as advertised

Pros: 5 drives into 3 bay. Indicator lights. Hot swappable (if your system allows it). Fan for cooling. Doesn't stick out forward (allowing front case doors to close). Adjustable fan speed (high/low/off) or plug fan into your MB. Standard sized 92mm fan that's easy to swap out. Hard drive tray can also accommodate SSD/2.5" HDD without any adapters.

Cons: Like other reviewers pointed it out; this takes up every bit of space side to side to squeeze in all 5 drives in three 5.25" bays. Also, each tray uses small screws to hold the hard drive. Once hard drive is mounted on the tray, the tray itself doesn't require tools to secure in the HDD cage.

Other Thoughts: With my Fractal Design XL R2, it has small L-brackets bent in the side of the 4-bay 5.25" cage that are meant to hold up optical drives as you slide the drive in. These same brackets get in the way as you are installing this product. I cut and filed those bits off in my case. Not worth losing an egg since its well known, and its required to fit 5 drives in that space. The individual tray lights are off with no HDD installed, green for powered, amber for 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!

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.
