Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 10TB Helium

This solution, as I stated in the introduction, has an entirely new design. As you can see, even the stickers are much different. Capacity is listed at the very bottom right.

The backside of the enclosure leaves room open for more PCB. Perhaps an SSHD version in the future?

Seagate has chosen to flip the connectivity with this helium solution. We now have the pins on the PCB and the pads on the drive itself.

Pulling off the PCB, we have a Seagate-branded controller in the center with a Smooth motor driver at the top. 256MB of cache comes from Winbond.
