EZConvert Air Open Air 2.5" to 3.5" SATA SSD & HDD Converter / Mounting Kit

Change can lead to more innovative and groundbreaking products - which is the path we have taken here at IcyDock. First, we had the popular EZConvert MB882 and EZConvert Pro MB982 converter series which allowed 2.5" drives to take the 3.5" form factor in a fully enclosed device. Up until recently, our customers have been seeking a similar device with an open air design with exceptional cooling, and the EZConvert Air MB382SP-3B is our response. The EZConvert Air MB382SP-3B converts any 2.5" SATA HDD/SSDs into 3.5" Hard drives; features an extremely robust stainless-steel exterior with a cleverly designed locking mechanism to keep your drives immobile. The open air design, ventilated slots, and metal construction all work simultaneously to keep your drives as cool as possible.


EZConvert Air Open Air
  • Converts 2.5" SATA HDD or SSD to 3.5" SATA hard drive
  • Heavy duty stain-less steel exterior with easy access to drives
  • Open air design for rapid heat dissipation
  • Ventilated slots allow air to flow through converter
  • Drive stabilizing & self-adjusting mechanism
  • Universal 3.5" HDD mounting holes
  • Tool-less design for quick & easy HDD/SSD installation
  • Optional bottom screw holes for extra drive security
  • Fits all 2.5" SATA drive heights from 7mm to 15mm


2.5" Drive Support For All 3.5" Bays

With the abundance of 2.5" SSDs and hard drives combined with the steady drop in price, it's a great time to purchase more storage. Many computer cases on the market do not have built in support for 2.5" SSD/HDD which makes a 2.5" to 3.5" HDD/SSD converter an absolute necessity when purchasing 2.5" SSDs or hard drives. For enterprise, it's valuable for upgrading file servers without paying a tremendous amount for an entire system upgrade.

EZConvert Air Open Air

With its self-adjusting mechanism design, the EZConvert Air MB382SP-3B accepts 2.5" SATA SSD/HDD of any height from 7mm to 15mm and keeps your drive stable while the spring tension drive clamp provides shock absorption. The EZConvert Air has the exact same form factor of a 3.5" hard drive, including the outer dimension, location of the SATA connector, and the mounting holes for both side and bottom allowing it to fit perfectly into any standard 3.5" SATA drive bay including HDD mobile racks, cages, external enclosures, PC, Mac, file servers and more. Any system that takes the 3.5" SATA HDD is compatible with the EZConvert Air MB382SP-3B.

EZConvert Air Open Air

With the optional bottom screw holes, this allows you to completely lock in 2.5" drives into the EZConvert Air allowing extra drive security. The added security feature is a must have for rugged system builds that require drives to be completely immobile yet easily accessible. It's the small details we consider that make IcyDock your go-to brand.

EZConvert Air Open Air

Convenience Meets Practicality

It's never been easier to install your 2.5" HDD/SSD. Simply press on the latch to open the locking mechanism, insert your SSD or hard drive into the SATA connector, and close the latch and you're ready to go. The EZConvert Air does not require any tools for SSD or drive installation, effectively decreasing installation time and labor of maintenance. The open design of this converter gives you quick access to your drives when the situation arises. If you need to swap drives, you can do so with ease.

EZConvert Air Open Air

For customers that swap their drives a lot, the built in SATA PCB bridge protects your HDD/SSD connector from wearing out during the insertion and removal cycle, and it delivers the full speed of SATA 6Gbps without any speed reduction.

EZConvert Air Open Air

Advanced cooling design

There's a reason we coined the name "EZConvert Air" - because of how much airflow this converter allows. With its open air design, heat can rapidly escape from your drives during your most intensive applications. This in turn can lead to better performance since excessive heat may slow down your system. Strategically placed ventilated slots surround the converter allowing heat to escape from all sides and angles, while the metal frame acts as a giant heat sink to quickly cool your hard drives. The open air design, ventilated slots, and metal frame combine to produce an advanced cooling system to put your mind at ease.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great fits my ssd's perfectly

Pros: I'm using this adapter with 2 different ssds that are in raid1 that hold the OS's for my home server.

These adapters are mounted in an icydock mb155sp hotswap bay to allow for easy removal and changing if one was to die. So far they've worked perfectly and I have not needed to touch them!

Cons: Slightly expensive, but the quality is worth the price!

5 out of 5 eggsGets the job done very nicely

Pros: In June 2014 I bought a 2.5-inch SSD that I wanted to use as an internal drive on a Mac Pro Quad-Core Intel Xeon computer. To do that I needed a converter to make it 3.5-inch, so I bought one of these at the same time. This Icy Dock does a fine job, and seems very well made.

Cons: No problems at all.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for tool-less systems

Pros: -Sturdy Stainless steel construction
-Easy to install HDD/ SSD
-EXACT HDD hole/ connector placement
-Allows air to flow to the drive.
-Perfect for computers/ servers with hotswappable and or tool-less hard drive bays that require perfect alignment.

Cons: I guess the (interior) connector is a bit tight. No where near terrible, and it helps keep the drive in place. Definitely not worth taking a egg off for. Just mentioning it.

Other Thoughts: I baught this for use in my Alienware Area-51 to hold my SSD in place. The case uses a tool-less quick connecting desdign that requres you to press the hard drive down (this puts the pins in the HDD) and it locks in place. It doesnt work with 2.5" drives by default (they just sit there on the connector)

Problem with most 2.5" - 3.5" connectors is that they do not line the SATA connectors up properly. (Either centered, or slightly off) Now, if you use cables to attatch your drives, this isnt a issue, but my system has hard set connectors in the bays, so alignment is crucial. This is one of the only drives that advertises exact placement. Every hole and connector is the same as a standard HDD

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Installed a PNY 240 Gb SSD in a 2007 iMac and worked like a charm. The drive was extremely easy to install in the converter and is held in tightly. Shouldn't need much ventilation for an SSD, but there is plenty of room for air flow.

Cons: The converter case did not allow the temperature sensor to be installed directly on the drive and had to be installed on the converter case, but not worried about heat from the SSD.

Other Thoughts: Originally got a 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter, but that's not what's needed for installing a SSD in an iMac.
