With today's current technology, you can build a PC from scratch that is fully customized to your specific needs. As a passionate gamer, you know that building a superior PC is not too difficult. You've already picked out your Asus P6X58D Premium Desktop board and Antec Twelve Hundred computer case...so now it's time to decide on a type of data storage! If you're a serious gamer, you'll know that a solid state drive (SSD), such as the Crucial RealSSD, would be the most optimal choice considering its impressive read and write speeds. However, the only problem with a SSD is that they are usually confined to the 2.5" form factor size. You hate dealing with the inconvenient brackets and mounts so what do you do?

The ICY DOCK MB990SP-B dual bay drive bracket allows you to mix and match two, yes we said two, standard 2.5" size SSD, IDE or SATA drives in an internal 3.5" drive bay. This EZ fit dual 2.5" to 3.5" HDD bracket features a state of the art "screw less" design that will save you time and frustration during installation. Rather than dealing with six to eight screws and multiple mounts for each drive, the MB990SP-B allows you to install up to two drives within seconds!
Installation Time Comparison: MB990SP-B 30 sec no tool require; Other bracket 300 sec+ require tool
The MB990SP-B is also constructed using lightweight plastic and utilizes an open air design allowing maximum air flow for superior drive cooling. Since most computer cases are not set up to use 2.5" form factor, the MB990SP-B allows you to make a huge upgrade to your system with very little effort and at a very affordable price!
