Introducing the Icy Dock MB994SP-4SB-1 Full Metal Quad Bay 2.5" SATA 6Gbps backplane for use in a single 5.25" device bay. This new model uses a SATA 6Gbps interface and adds a fan power switch to control when you need it. The dual 40mm cooling fans in addition to the power switch for the fans allow for the best flexibility - Turn off when using SSD's and on when using mechanical SATA hard drives. The single 4 pin power connector reduces the amount of cables required and making installation simpler.

Any word on price/availability? The fan off/on switch on the front IMO would have been nice. Guess they felt people wouldn't have the need/desire to turn the fans on/off constantly.

That'd be perfect for my SSD's / 2.5 Momentus XT's raid... I'm currently using two dual bay backplanes, this would save me some room!
