This side of the SSD is covered by a manufacturer label. This label has a thermally conductive copper layer that covers the controller, DRAM package, and two of the drive's four flash packages. We chose not to remove the label as doing so could compromise the thermal layer inside the label.

This side of the drive has a conventional label covering two of the drive's four flash packages.
