SEED MA-280 - Physical Details

Without any visual references for comparison, the MA-280 could be mistaken for a much larger case. An old style VCR comes to mind.


The main intake air vent is directly above the CPU area. There are only a few small air slits on the left side.


The optical drive bay cover is of the pull-down variety — it is not properly stealthed.

The cutout at the back for the I/O shield is nonstandard — the stock back plate is designed to fit Intel's Atom boards only. There is a 40mm fan on the right side for cooling the DC-to-DC power board.



Under the cover. The product literature mentions an adapter to mount a second hard drive above the CPU area, but it was missing from our package. The power supply provides one floppy, one slimline SATA, and two full-sized SATA connectors.



Interior layout.
