Here we get our first look at the actual card. Areca cools the dual-core ROC with a thin heatsink and fan that is much quieter than you'd expect from a small fan. The two SFF-8087 ports, each using four channels are located at the back of the controller.

 

Connectivity is through a PCIe 2.0 eight lane connector that can be used in an eight lane or sixteen lane port.

There's not much going on other than several surface mount components on this side.

No, the ARC-1882i does not double as an Ethernet controller, but you can manage your arrays through this out-of-bandwidth port.

Being a half-height card the ARC-1882i is quite thin. Here we see the back where the connectors are located.

Under the heatsink we found the LSI SAS 2208 dual core SAS controller.
