The all-metal door latch offers stable and smooth drive ejection action and protection to the installed drive.
Full Metal Structure
To ensure enclosure reliability for many years, the TurboSwap can hold up in the harshest and roughest environments. The housing is made of a full-metal construction that is suitable for rugged-edge applications and industries that require a flammability rating.
Maximum Heat Dissipation
The open-air structure and air vents all around the device offer maximum heat dissipation. It works perfectly with your computer's cooling system and keeps your drive cool even under heavy workloads.
Optional Fan Mounting Holes
The TurboSwap MB171SP-1B includes four optional mounting holes for an 80mm cooling fan. Install a compatible cooling fan (80x80x10mm) and connect it to your power supply if extra cooling is needed.
Drive Power Button & Activity Light
The TurboSwap MB171SP-1B features an easy access drive power button that allows users to shut off the drive to reduce power and drive usage or prevent a hacker/virus attack. When a drive is fully inserted in the enclosure, the drive activity light will begin to light up and indicate the drive is powered and accessed.
