The top of the drive's midnight blue colored aluminum enclosure features a manufacturer label.
The bottom of the drive's aluminum enclosure is bare except for two tamper evident stickers.
The PCB is held in place by one screw and two locator pins. Three foam spacers are affixed to the underside of the top of the enclosure. On this side of the PCB, both the ECO and MAX are identical.
We removed the 5100 ECO's PCB from the bottom of the enclosure, and it did not come apart cleanly. The thermal paste used is sufficient for thermal conduction, but difficult to remove. We decided against scraping it off to get a better look. We also decided against removing the 5100 MAX's PCB as it could negatively impact the thermal material.
Micron provided architectural details of the major components for both drives.
