Packaging and a Closer Look

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.
