Inside the Asustor AS-604RD

Inside, we found a 250-watt Delta power supply.

The inside components are nice and tidy, free from cable clutter, so the airflow is decent.

A single DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM ships in the system, but you can add a 2GB module to increase the DRAM to 3GB total.

The backplane has vents behind each drive, but two 40mm fans don't cool all of the bays equally.

Here we see the two 40mm fans that are behind drive bay 3 and 4. SATA drives with 4 platters or less shouldn't be an issue, but new 5TB and 6TB drives might have a problem in this environment.
