PRODUCT COMPOSITION & SETUP
The ICY dock comes with few other objects aside from itself.
One of the few other objects is a one page manual, which gives an "Installation
for Dummies" type description of how everything works, how to install
the hard-drive and how to set the Master and Slave settings. Also included
are screws for the 5.25" bay in your PC and a key, to lock the bay in
place so that it can't be removed while running.
As you can see the front of the ICY Dock features an LCD
display (on the left) and 3 blue buttons (below screen) to scroll through
the menus on the screen. On the right is the locking mechanism which
allows you to slide the dock out of its tray. Directly behind this locking
mechanism is the ball bearing fan which provides ample airflow through
the dock keeping it "ICY" cool.
Inside the tray itself, you can see the fan, the circuit
board that controls the LCD display and the cables for connecting the
hard-drive. On either side of this tray are mount plates for the hard-drive
to keep it from vibrating when in use.
