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.

EZConvert

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.

Not for NAS drives 12/20/2018 7:00:42 PM

Pros: - Sleek Look
- Fits 5 drives
- SATA III

Cons: - Awful cooling.
- One tray would not stay closed.

Overall Review: This would be great for consumer drives but running NAS drives in RAID 5 array caused them to hit 135 degrees and thermal throttle rather quickly even with the fan on full. Just does not seem to be enough space for air flow throughout the chassis.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello Zac,

I'm sorry you've experienced this overheating issue with your drive cage. The fan of this model is designed to cool any 5x 3.5" hard drives, and does support NAS drives as well as use in RAID. This model features a fan-speed jumper in the rear of the unit, with settings for high, low, and off. Please ensure that this jump in inserted into the High position, to provide maximum cooling performance.

After setting the fan to High, if you are still experiencing overheating issues, then it is possible that the fan is defective in some way. If this is the case, please contact us at tech@icydock.com so we can troubleshoot with you, and assist you in creating an RMA so that we may replace your fan for you. Your product, as with all ICY DOCK products, is backed by a full 3-year warranty against all defects, and we would be happy to resolve this issue for you as per the warranty.

Thank you,
Chris - ICY DOCK Customer Support

Rebate headache 7/25/2018 12:42:53 PM

Pros: Average cage

Cons: Major rebate headache. Bought it because of the $30 rebate temptation. Submitted the rebate on April 17th. Waited 14 weeks of processing time. Emailed them today about rebate not received along with PDF attachment of rebate records. Peter Thong, the Icy Dock rebate guy, told me he sent the check out on May 29th but provided no further proof that rebate was actually sent. Can Newegg step in and do something about this?

Overall Review: Icy Dock Rebates seem questionable, if not STRONGLY QUESTIONABLE, to me
Will call Newegg Customer Service tomorrow to see what can be done.
If not successful, will get credit card people involved right after that.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello,

Thank you for your review. We have provided a record from our bank showing the check was sent out. This seems to be an issue with the check being lost in transit from USPS. Unfortunately, we do not have tracking information from USPS, so we do not have confirmation if it was delivered to your home or lost in transit. As we have told you via email, we are not able to send out a replacement check until 90 days after the date of first issue. This is due to past experiences of fraud where people would double-cash checks.

Our rebate process is generally simple and fast. This type of issue is rare, and only happened do to a failing on USPSs fault for not delivering the rebate check to you correctly. We apologize for this bad expirence, and assure you that we will resend the check as soon as the 90-day period has been reached.

Thank You,

Great product!!! 11/13/2017 3:49:32 PM

Pros: Everything...instructions are fine for most to figure out.

Cons: **** that's a loud fan. Replaced with Noctua NF-R8 redux-1200 80x80x25 mm Case Fan (Noctua's quietest 80mm fan) and now its perfect!

Overall Review: Replace the fan and its perfect.

SATA port broke off 10/13/2017 4:58:33 PM

Pros: You get 5 drive bays

Cons: When I first received installed it, I noticed that 2 of the 5 drive bays would not lock into place.
The metal bar which locks the drive down, would not snap into position. It just kept popping back out!
Then when I removed the cage from the PC, SATA port #1 broke off. Just as it did with the previous reviewer!

Overall Review: Icy Dock's customer service was great though. They offered a replacement or repair, but I have decided to go with Icy Dock's trayless model, MB975SP-B R1, which I think will be much better.

Ports are made from brittle plastic that breaks away from PCB 5/19/2017 8:03:14 AM

Pros: - Drive trays are of decent quality
- Included screws were ok

Cons: - SATA 1 broke off on second insertion
- POWER broke off on second insertion

Overall Review: I think you can get this installed into your system without breaking, if you ever have to move it or disconnect the cables, all bets are off. Treat this like the flimsiest IKEA furniture you can think of and don't move it.

NEVER TOUCH IT WITH YOUR MACHINE ON... you could definitely short out drives with the way the power connector frays off.

Hello Jeffrey,

I'm sorry you've had a problem with the build quality on our FatCage. If the plastic around the cables has broken off in such a short amount of time, it is likely due to a manufacturing defect. I don't want you to continue to feel insecure about our product, so I would like to have yours repaired/replaced. Please contact our customer support team directly, I will include a link to contact information below. All of our products are backed by a full 3-year warranty against all defects, and we will fix this issue for you as per the warranty. We have contact methods via email, phone, and live web-chat for your convenience.

Works as advertised, but could use some improvement 5/11/2017 4:47:14 PM

Pros: Price, capacity

Cons: Inadequate cooling

Overall Review: I bought 3 of these about 5 months ago, for my unpaid server. One had a defective activity indicator. The other two worked fine.

Cooling is grossly inefficient. Your drives are going to run hot. Buy a high cfm fan and replace the original, if you plan on using 5 drives.

I see too many complaints about these being to wide and people having to bend the guide rails in their cases. They can't be any narrower and still support 5 drives. It's physics folks! Bend the rails, or buy a 4 drive bay, and stop sniveling. Don't downrate the product, downrate your case, it's the case's rails that are in the way.
