The product: On the back we see a 60mm fan, cooling the hard drives because heat is often the cause for hard drive failures. The fan is pretty noisy though and it’s not possible to turn it off completely.
We also see the two USB ports, the Gigabit Net interface, the reset button and power connector. And all the way to the left it’s possible to lock the server (K-Lock)
WARNING; performing the following steps you will loose the warranty.
As the enthusiast I am, I’ve chosen to dismantle it to see if there’s anything interesting inside and to see if there was a normal ram DIMM, so that you could install extra ram beside the standard 128MB DDR2. As the picture shows the shell has come off, but that didn’t make us much wiser, so I’m continuing.
The hard drive mounting frame was pulled off and we’ve reached the motherboard. As seen, in both ends of the motherboard there is normal SATA plus.
The motherboard was pulled out and turned around. Finally we can see that it’s a little PC, we’ve got RAM, bios (flash) battery, CPU and all the other stuff you’re used to in a PC, these parts is just smaller.
Closer look of CPU and RAM. And we see that it’s actually Hynix ram modules.
Just a quick picture of the server when it’s assembled with the nice high gloss front.
