Your M.2 Becomes Mobile
With the help of the external USB 3.1 Type-C™ enclosure IB-1816M-C31 you can take one NVMe card with you quickly and easily. It allows access to M.2 SSDs of up to 2 TB no matter to which host you connect it. The IB-1816M-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.
Lightweight Aluminium - Acts as A Heat-Sink Too!
Weighing less than 40 g, the IB-1816M-C31 features a sleek, compact, and crush-resistant aluminium enclosure that safeguards the M.2 SSD against shock and vibration. Its grooved finned heatsink design supports heat dissipation for an excellent cooling effect and protects the SSD from overheating and thermal throttling even under heavy use.
USB Type-C™ Controller Based on NVMe - Fast USB Gen 2 Speed
If you wanted to connect an external case with an M.2 SSD via USB Type-C™ in the past, you were limited to SATA models. The new chipset allows NVMe M.2 SSDs to be connected to a USB 3.1 (Gen 2) Type-C™ host computer and enables the full data transfer rate of up to 1000 MB per second.
Fast on the Move
With USB 3.1 (Gen 2) Type-C™ even higher data transfer rates can be achieved. The high transfer rate of up to 10 Gbit/s is ensured by the supplied USB 3.1 Type-C™ cable and only needs a matching end device in the form of a PC, tablet or similar with Windows® or macOS®.
• Supports PCIe 3.0 x2 transfer rate of up to 1000 megabyte per second.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.
