The card is comprised of two cards. The main card plugs into your motherboards PCIe slot, and has the Comay RAID controller, and half of the controllers and flash. The daughterboard holds the other half of the flash, and two controllers.

To spread heat around, Comay put the flash and controllers on opposite sides, and faced them to the outside.

There are thirty-two NAND flash packages in total, and four SATA III flash controllers.

With the heat sink removed, we see the mysterious Comay SBC208 RAID controller. We never found a way to get into the controller to change the stripe size, or see any advanced settings.

The controllers are LSI SandForce SF-2281 VB2; the new lower power controllers.
