Do you find yourself wishing you had more space to put in an additional three 3.5" HDDs and have nothing to do with a pair of 5.25" bays? Icy Dock has a solution for you with the FatCage MB153SP-B which takes up two 5.25" bays and can fit three 3.5" SATA drives, even better it can run them with only two SATA power connectors. Thanks to the easy opening front this might just be the easiest way to add hotswap drive to your machine without needing anything hanging off of the outside of your box. As you can see from the rear shot, the drives are actively cooled and Pro-Clockers did indeed test the compatibility of 2.5" to 3.5" SSD adapters with no problems whatsoever.
"There are several manufacturers of such devices but we have one of the better ones on tap for you today. Icy Dock has been doing this for over fifteen years and has become a leader at it. FatCage MB153SP-B is one of several models coming from Icy Dock; the series would include the DataCage Basic and the FlexCage. Each having their own unique features, so we will try and get them into the lab so we can give you more insight on them."
