Ten64 Complete Kit

You get a a fully assembled and tested Ten64 mainboard installed in a custom metal enclosure with a fan, 60 W power supply with regional power cord, a USB-C console cable, a recovery microSD card, a SIM eject tool, and a hex key, as you'd expect with any good piece of hardware. RAM with ECC not included.



From the Crowd Supply Basics project.

This SanDisk solid-state drive (SSD) fits inside the standard Ten64 enclosure and interfaces to the mainboard via NVMe. The 128 GB drive (P/N SDAPMUW-128G-1022) is compatible with both the M.2 Key M and M.2 Key B slots on Ten64's mainboard, whereas the 256 GB drive (P/N SDBPNPZ-256G) and 512 GB drive (P/N SDBPNPZ-512G) are only compatible with the M.2 Key M slot. These drives are only available when purchased with a Ten64. User installation required.


NAS-grade SATA 2.5" SSD

From the Crowd Supply Basics project.

These NAS-grade solid state drives (SSDs) are rated to last much longer than consumer models, so are perfect for NAS bulk storage. Choose from 256 GB (AP256GPPSS25-R), 512 GB (AP512GPPSS25-R), and 1 TB (AP1TPPSS25-R) capacities. These drives are only available when purchased with a Ten64. User installation required.


Flexible SATA Cable

One flexible cable (3M part number 5602-44-0142A-300) for connecting a SATA drive to a SATA controller board. You will need one cable per drive.
