In addition, while working together with numbers of ventilation holes around the enclosure, each drive tray is equipped with a high efficiency aluminum heat sink to ensure all the M.2 NVMe SSDs remains within their optimal temperature even when it is under full load.

Ultimately, your drives will be well protected within this full metal drive enclosure and a barrel key lock to prevent any unauthorized physical access.

M.2 Drive is No Longer Hidden

A typical M.2 drive is installed on a motherboard or a riser card and secured by a tiny screw, and it can be a very troublesome and time-consuming process to install or remove the drive physically. However, with ICY DOCK's ToughArmor MB833M2K-B, M.2 drives are brought into the front of a computer case and makes M.2 NVMe SSD installation and removal a more
straightforward and efficient process.

State-of-art Tool-less M.2 Drive Installation

M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD drives are most often inserted at a 45-degree angle then screwed down onto the motherboard. When using ToughArmor MB833M2K-B, the user can simply place the M.2 SSD in the drive tray, adjust the drive locker to the correct length per M.2 drive type, and push down the drive to lock in place. The whole process will only take users less than five seconds to complete, avoiding the hassle of tiny, easy-to-lose screws while bringing a more efficient and innovative way in installing M.2 drives.

Being a truly tool-less drive installation, installing and removing of the extra-large high-efficiency aluminum heatsink does not require any tools as well. Simply push your thumbs down against the two buttons located at the underside of the tray and the heat sink will simply pop out for you to remove. To install it back, you simply cover the tray with the heatsink and with a little downward force, it will snap right back onto the tray.

EMI Grounding Technology

Grounding your M.2 is very important through many swaps, to ensure your data and drive are always safe. Without grounding, when swapping drives, there is a high possibility that there may be static shocks, possibly damaging the data on the drive. With our innovative M.2 drive installation design, the adjustable M.2 locker act as a ground and once the M.2 locker clips into the SSD screw hole, the drive will be grounded by the tray and the housing of the enclosure. The grounded connector design protects your drive from static electrical surge, ensuring your data is always safe during drive swapping.
