Frequently Bought Together
Product Overview Fast and mobile
With the help of the external USB 3.1 Type-C™ enclosure IB-1817M-C31 you can comfortably take one NVMe card with you wherever you go and keep it accessible. It allows access to M.2 SSDs of up to 2 TB with any host computer.

Keep it cool
The patented cooling plate transfers the resulting heat from the SSD to the housing and cools the SSD optimally. This prevents the early reduction of the transfer rate to protect from overheating. With the IB-1817M-C31, data can be sent permanently from A to B at maximum transfer rate of up to 10 Gbit/s.

Time is valuable
The IB-1817M-C31 is compatible with M.2 cards of 30, 42, 60 and 80 mm length, operating system-independent and suitable for a variety of applications such as high-speed storage, cloning a drive or running a mobile operating system. All this happens with a data transfer rate with up to 1000 Mb per second. Compared to data transfer with a SATA drive, a data volume of 50 gigabytes is now transferred in 50 seconds instead of 1:36 minutes.

Click - Safe
With the IB-1817M-C31, sensitive data on the installed M.2 SSD can be protected from changes by a simple switch. The write protection switch can be moved to the desired position using the supplied mini tool and a small hand movement. Click - safe.

Reviews
ICY BOX IB-1817M-C31 Portable M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure, Aluminum 10Gbit/s USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C /A is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made, very quick external enclosure Performance in attached screenshot with a Corsair MP510. Connected to a MBP with included USB C-C cable. I originally bought an Icy Box IB-1816M-C31 - The black 'version' of this enclosure. Whilst it was fine it didn't scream quality and the drive rattled inside and had no direct connection between the chips and heat sink enclosure. This makes the black '6' version looks like garbage: It has a strip of heat sink compound to apply to the chips It has a metal strip to connect the compound to the enclosure It has the correct screws to mount the Nvme drive securely against the internal circuitry. It has a write protection switch, which protects against transference of virus/malware, can stop accidental deletion etc. The 6 version had none of these things. It is generally more weighty and premium feeling as well. It baffles me that they are the same price. Either way, this is an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, well made, effective cooling. M2 SSDs heat up during prolonged activity, such as writing a large video file. The firmware slows the activity to protect the disk, so performance is sustained only if the SSD can be efficiently cooled. This enclosure has excellent thermal properties, with an internal heat sink to attach to the SSD and make good contact with the case. Even so, the enclosure can become hot, so it is best to ensure there is good airflow all round during heavy use. At normal levels of activity it gets no more than warm. It is compact, strong, very fast: an excellent external SSD case.
