Packaging for the 6414AS is a simple brown box with black graphics.

The scope of delivery includes the enclosure seen in the back, along with the RocketRAID 4522 HBA and mini-SAS cable pictured to the right.

Our first look at the enclosure has us noticing the single piece aluminum design covered by the plastic front bezel. The four drive trays include a locking mechanism with two LEDs per tray.

The rear of the enclosure is pretty simple. We have the mini-SAS connection followed by a 92mm cooling fan and the power supply at the very bottom.

Here we have our first look at the HBA, which is the 4522 from HighPoint that features two external mini-SAS connections to the far left.

Removing the copper heat sink from the HBA, we find the Marvell 88RC9580, a PCIe 2.0 x8 eight port SAS RoC (RAID on Chip) controller.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
