The 5.25 device bay has been a long standard in computer history. It started from the 90s legacy industrial PC cases all the way to todays Micro ATX cases. The 5.25 bay has been widely used for optical drives such as DVD and Blue-ray, or with even a single 3.5 hard drive with mobile rack. However, it is almost impossible to use a single 5.25 bay to create complex RAID storage until the MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5 SATA Hard Drive SSD Backplane.
High Capacity RAID Storage in Limited Space
Utilizing the standard 5.25 bay form factor, the compact design allows the enclosure to be used in various applications, catering to a wide audience. The MB996SP-6SB excels for use in advanced RAID applications such as building dual RAID 5 arrays or high performance 4 drives in RAID 0 plus RAID 1 array for back up, all in a single 5.25 device bay. The MB996SP-6SB is extremely useful for powerful small servers, gaming rigs, home servers or HTPCs due to its high capacity and space saving design. It is also perfect for users who needs non-RAID JBOD storage and save different contents in different drive locations. It supports wide-range of applications which is the true value of the MB996SP-6SB.
Rock Solid Construction
Making sure your drives or expensive SSDs are in good hands and last as much as possible is carefully considered to any build and design. The MB996SP-6SB is capable of holding up in the various environments, with the heavy duty full metal construction in the entirety of the body and its smaller components.
The metal material used grants heat dissipation transfer from the hard drives to the backplane cage. Lastly, Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT) and EMI grounding are used to ensure a stable environment for the hard drives or SSDs used, dramatically improving reliability.
