Packaging and the DS380 Continued
Starting off the third page of this article, we take our first look inside the chassis. As you can see, we have the hot swap bays to the left and the internal four bay rack to the right. The motherboard tray sits in the back of the chassis.
To remove the drive rack, there are two screws on the bottom side of the enclosure.
Now that we have the drive cage out, we can get a good look at it. Here we have dual Molex connections that fan out throughout the PCB and are connected to the caps to supply clean, ripple free power to the drives. Furthermore, we have 16 SATA connectors on the back of the unit, eight of which are used to connect SAS drives.
Now that we have the drive cage out of the unit, we can take yet another look inside. As you can see, we have quite a bit of room to work with here. Up front, we have the front panel wires coming through around the fans, while the fan wires, while not sleeved, follow the same path towards the motherboard.
The setup we are installing in our DS380 is an MSI Z87I Gaming AC motherboard, an Intel Core i7 4770 CPU, and 16GB of Patriot Extreme Masters.
