In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

Gigabytes and Gibibytes

If you've used a computer for any duration of time you'll have come across the terms “kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte” and so on. Then there's “kilobit, megabit and gigabit” to add a bit of confusion and to top it all off you've maybe heard or read terms like “gibibyte” on occasion.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Little on the expensive side but high quality, great for space optimization. I've been wanting this for quite some time but was a bit put off by its high price. Only recently (after having purchased a Corsair Carbide Air 540 which is an excellent case, but low on drive bays) have I actually made the plunge and bought a Pioneer BDR-TD05AS Blu-ray drive with it to replace my older LG Blu-ray drive that took up an entire 5.25" bay to allow me to easily replace the two Sandisk 128Gb SSDs I have for my OS volume in a RAID 0 config when I want to 'test' an upgrade or perform a clean OS install without having to open the "cable chamber" of the 540 to get to my drives. The Icy Dock MB994IPO-3SB takes any standard slim SATA ODD which is secured by four tiny screws (one of which you'll need a long and thin screwdriver to fit) and can also be replaced just like the hard drives: Slide the caddy out, swap the drive, slide it back in. I do note that although it allows for hotswap, you won't be able to do so unless your SATA/SAS controller also supports hotswap (not all of them do). This one takes both SATA and SAS HDDs so if you have a RAID controller with SAS and you have the SAS drives to support it there is nothing stopping you from utilizing SAS if needed. If you just want it for SATA though, just plug your SATA cables in to the "PRI" SATA socket and leave the "2ND" socket empty. SATA is the config I chose as I do not yet have a need for SAS in my rig just yet. Drives slide in and out with ease, and the quality of the unit is great: It is made completely of metal, and build quality is brilliant. In the box you get the unit itself, 4 screws for the ODD bay, two plastic unlocking keys to allow you to eject the ODD bay (although if you lose them a 2mm screw driver will work), 8 screws for the drive trays, and screws for fitting the unit to your case which have to be very short otherwise you will have trouble fitting the drive trays, although fitting in to the quick-release mechanism of the Corsair Carbide Air 540 I have found no problems (can't say the same about any other case's quick release). Yes, it's a little on the expensive side, especially without an ODD included, but it is high quality and for space optimization a good investment. I've added the drive I purchased to use with this (works great) in to my recommendations, as well as the Sandisk SSDs I purchased and use with it too. 26 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great design and build I was very pleased to find a caddy that had a slot for a slim dvd drive (like a laptop drive), these dvd drives lock the disk in place,one of our new case builds is robotic rotating 360 degrees on two axis so the drive is upside down sometimes , this caddy fits the design lovely and the build quality and functionality is grade 1 04 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compact and efficient for matx build for hot swap boot + slim optical drive Product worked well in placing in a prodigy M case - space at a premium - so optical drive and 2 ssd bays keeps usage at premium - happy but mounting drives can be a little destructive - scraping whilst getting depth of screws just so; so the unit and drives are secured. Improvement would be a roller or slide caddy; but once in and settled this isn't an issue. 04 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice idea, pretty well executed. If you need to fit an optical drive and two 2.5" SSD's or laptop drives into a single 5.25" bay then this is for you. I'm not aware there's anything else on the market to do this. Build quality is pretty good, although the drive trays are made from softish grey SECC steel and you must use the supplied screws to mount the drives into the frame. Same goes for the enclosure itself, problem being that these screws may be too short depending on the thickness of the material your case is made from. In my case the screws were useless, but had some slightly longer ones kicking around. Bear this in mind if you don't have a stock of variable length screws available. Just make sure they are not too long otherwise you could bend some internal components. On the upside any laptop hard dive will just slide in and work - no SATA or power adapters needed. And the 40mm fans are very quiet. 19 February 2014
