While Denmark is known for many things, including Hamlet, Hans Christian Andersen, and Kierkegaard, perhaps the most persistent and significant contribution from the Danes is the Lego brick. It is the single most recognizable toy in the world and appeals to everyone across cultures and age groups. By design, each Lego brick interlocks and is interchangeable so users are only limited by their creativity and imagination when it comes to playing with the bricks. There are many other similar construction toys but Lego remains the best due to the simplicity of its design and the strength of its function.
Computer components are similarly modular in that each part can be upgraded and swapped out in order to build a functioning whole. While not all individual computer components can be simplified further and broken down to modular pieces for convenience, storage enclosures, in particular, can be designed so that swapping out drives is easier. Icy Dock is a well-known name among system builders and they have plenty of solutions that offer convenience when putting together a storage system. One product in particular is the Icy Dock MB153SP-B.
The Icy Dock “FatCage” MB153SP-B is a 3-in-2 internal SATA HDD cage that was designed to save space inside a chassis. The Icy Dock FatCage 3-in-2 SATA device is also designed to save time through a simplified mounting mechanism which is interchangeable with ten other Icy Dock internal and external storage items. To keep temperature levels optimal, Icy Dock has outfitted the FatCage series backplane modules with an 80mm cooling fan which actively cools the drives inside. For those worried about thermal conditions, especially when installing inside compared to typical HDD cages, the durable metal frame of the MB153SP FatCage is not only designed for durability, it also dissipates the heat emitted by the drives installed. The Icy Dock MB153SP FatCage only requires two 15-pin SATA power connectors to fully operate three drives and the active cooling fan, saving overall power.
