Here we get our first look at the LSI MegaRAID 9280-24i4e. On the top is a large heat sink that keeps the controller and accompanying chips cool. There are six SFF-8087 ports that each carry four channels and on the back is an SFF-8088 external port that carries an additional four channels.

The back side of the controller is fairly uneventful other than a few surface mount components.

Here we see the external I/O panel that has the SFF-8088 port for connecting the 9280-24i4e to an external storage array.

The controller connects to your server through a PCIe 2.0 x8 lane port. You can also install the controller in a full length x16 port.
