Packaging and Accessories
Here, we get our first look Mach Xtreme's MX SATA DOM. This is officially the first DOM we've ever reviewed on TweakTown. As we mentioned in the introduction, it's not like we haven't tried. The Mach Xtreme DOM is actually fast enough to live through our benchmarks.
Mach Xtreme also makes a horizontal form factor, but all three of the samples we have on hand are vertical. The vertical drives will not fit in a 1u form factor case if the SATA connectors are also vertical.
The drives plug right into a SATA plug on the motherboard.
SATA does not provide power, so you need to power the SATA DOM with either a 4-pin Molex connector, 3-pin fan header, or a special DOM power header on the motherboard. Mach Xtreme only includes a 4-pin Molex power connector in the package.
The power cables are very cheap, and the connector is standard, so they are easy to find on Amazon.
Our Supermicro 1u system (my future Pfsense router) has a SATA DOM power connector onboard, right next to the SATA connector.
Sometimes you want to write data to your SATA DOM, and other times you don't. Flipping the switch on the top of the drive enables write protect mode.
Inside the retail package we found a tested paper, the SATA DOM, and a power adapter.
