Unleash PCIe Storage Potential

Unlock the full potential of your desktop computer’s storage capabilities with the ToughArmor MB111VP-B by utilizing your unused PCIe expansion slots. This storage solution allows adding a U.2/U.3 NVMe drive to your system, effectively exceeding your computer’s usual drive limitations. In addition, with the PCIe interface, you can take advantage of fast transfer speeds of up to 64Gbps.

Designed to fit the PCIe x4 card slot, the MB111VP-B is also compatible with PCIe x8 and x16 full-length PCIe slots, providing you with added flexibility and versatility.

The Protection You Need

Get the protection your data deserves with the rugged and durable ToughArmor MB111VP-B. Its full-metal chassis, tray, and mounting bracket ensure a long product life and excellent heat dissipation. The built-in anti-vibration mechanism helps to reduce noise and protect against environmental damage.

In addition, large ventilation holes on both sides of the enclosure work in tandem with your system’s cooling system to maintain optimal temperatures for your NVMe drives, even under a full load. 

Packed with Features

The MB111VP-B is a feature-packed device that leverages the PCIe interface to simplify cable management in PC cases. Additionally, the drive tray comes equipped with a LED indicator to display drive power and activity, while an optional 2-pin HDD activity signal output (cable not included) allows for easy transfer of the drive activity signal to the front of the computer.

EZ Slide Nano Trays

Using the EZ Slide Nano trays makes drive interchangeability and maintenance completely hassle free. For drive security, the Eagle-hook lock system on the tray makes sure your hard drives will not eject when not needed. The trays are designed to accommodate 7mm to 9.5mm height hard drive and SSD, creating a 2.5" hot swap bay for PCIe Slot.

Enhance Security with Our Lockable Drive Tray

If your application demands added physical security to protect valuable data from theft, you can upgrade with the compatible lockable drive tray MB996TK-B for an instant security boost to your MB111VP-B.
