Here we get our first look at the G.Skill Phoenix Pro. On the front, we see that G.Skill has listed the capacity.

Most of the real information is listed on the back of the drive. Here we see the actual model number as well as some performance claims.

On the side of the drive we see that G.Skill has kept the standard mounting locations.

The power and data connections are also in the standard locations. There is one issue with this, but it really doesn't have anything to do with the drive. The mounting bracket mounts the drive in the middle.

 

That leaves the power and data connections in the wrong spot when the drive is mounted in the bracket. It won't be an issue for most users, but if you are mounting the bracket in some type of enclosure the drive will not line up right.
