Inside the Thecus N8810U-G




Inside, we found that the redundant power supply is nearly as large as the motherboard.




A Sure Star SS-400R8P with dual 400 watt units keeps the system up and running. Sadly, this unit is not 80+ certified.




The system can accept up to four DDR3 ECC RAM modules. One ships in the system.




Five SATA cables head to the SATA backplane and expand to eight SATA ports.




The Thecus N8810U-G is very quiet in operation. The Intel dual-core CPU is actively cooled and helps keep the system noise down.




An undocumented mSATA port inside the system may or may not have a future use. We've seen these in other Thecus systems in the past as well.




The Thecus 10GbE NIC uses a Marvell controller.






Four 80mm fans in the front of the NAS pull cool air over the HDDs and push it to cool the other components.




The fans are actually hot swappable with each in a carrier.




A quick detach connector keeps administrators from fumbling with connectors in the system. You just pull and replace.
