Ah, our first look at the HyperX and she is a looker. A majority of the case is made of aluminum, but as you can see, Kingston has added a nice touch of blue to the drive.

The back of the drive has the model number and capacity size listed on the sticker. The four mounting points are present and where they should be. Also, it pains me to say it but I couldn't get the drive apart. Kingston used security screws with this drive and I don't have any 1.5mm Torx security tools - they'll be here next week.

The side mountings are where they should be.

The SATA power and data mounts are where they should be and the included 2.5" to 3.5" offsets the drive so these points line up with standard drive bays that are in workstations or desktops.
