Icy Dock Announces MB080U3S-1SB Blizzard USB 3.0 & eSATA External HDD Enclosure

Icy Dock’s new MB080U3S-1SB Blizzard 3.5” drive enclosure is engineered for maximum cooling. The Blizzard integrates an 80mm fan to cool all sides of the hard drive and create consistent airflow from the front to the back of the enclosure.

The fan is integrated into the front panel which allows to swap drives without any screws or tools. Two concealed button ejectors detach the front panel. The rear panel has a single LED brightness dial to adjust LED brightness. A built in fan controller allows you to select low, high, and auto mode, which adjusts the fan speed as needed.
