Icy Dock released a handy enclosure that makes room for four 2.5" SATA or SAS HDDs/SSDs inside a 5.25" drive bay. The Icy Dock MB994SP-4S enclosure provides the four 2.5" bays with doors and trays that make loading and unloading the drives inside easy. Internally, the enclosure relays four SATA or SAS connections to the ports at the back (from which they can be individually connected to the system's storage controller, while power is drawn in from two Molex connectors. Each tray has its own drive activity indicator. Cooling is care of two 40 mm fans on its rear side. Measuring 6.7" x 5.75 x 1.63", the enclosure is the size of most 5.25" optical drives, and is designed to fit in almost every case with a 5.25" bay. Icy Dock did not give out pricing or availability details yet.
