After removing 4 screws on the rear shell of the SSD, you need to be bit careful when you’re pulling the plastic cover since there’s a large strip of the thermal pad. The PCB is not screwed on the other half of the shell, but it is stuck on it with a help of another large strip of the thermal pad.  The adhesive is bit strong so if you have any intention to void the 3 years of the warranty period, exercise some caution.


As you can see, there are 6x NANDs on each side, with 2 empty space on each side of the PCB.


Kingston HyperX 3K uses Sandforce SF 2281 controller and Intel 25nm 29F64G08ACME3 NAND. This is a 8GB MLC NAND- so that 96GB ( Calculated as 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes) in total.
