Looking inside the TS-EC1279U-RP is quite a treat. There are several custom trick pieces in the unit.

QNAP zip ties the 4GB ECC DRAM so it can't wiggle free during shipping.

There are two PCIe 8 lane ports, one filled from the factory and one ready for your 10GbE card.

One of the nicest pieces in the NAS is something you wouldn't expect. The NAS has a removable, hot swappable fan cage that you just pull up on to release.

The fans inside are pretty beefy and cool everything inside other than the power supplies.

Speaking of the power supplies, they are made by Delta Electronic, Inc and are 600 watt models.

A Marvell 88SE9125 SATA/SAS controller takes care of the storage duties.

The drive sleds are configured for both 3.5" and 2.5" form factor drives.
