The SuperSSpeed S301 Hyper Gold comes in a sturdy 2.5" aluminum chassis with a 9.3mm Z-Height.

The SSD does not feature any power capacitors for host power-loss protection, and has a notable lack of thermal pads. The S031 is rated for 70C, likely due to the thermal envelope of the LSI SandForce controller. Intel 25nm SLC NAND is rated for 100C, providing great performance in high heat environments.

The LSI SF-2281VB1 controller is the only feature on the top of the PCB.

The bottom of the PCB is populated with eight packages of 29F16B16NCNE1 Intel 25nm SLC NAND.

There is no DRAM cache, which is typical of LSI SandForce based products.
