Installation & Testing
Installing the Max 4 is very easy. First before you put it in your case you are going to want to connect your power and SATA connectors. Then go ahead and slide it in your case and secure it on each side with screws.
Now you can go ahead and slide in your drives. You don’t need any mounting hardware for the drives you just go ahead and slide them in. When you close the bay doors they lock right in place.
So how do we testing the Max 4? It is pretty simple actually. We will be using 2 Samsung 128GB RBX series solid state drives. We will have 1 drive installed in the Max 4 and the other directly connected to the motherboard. Here are the results from our HDTune test.

Directly connected to the motherboard
As you can see the results are almost identical, so the Max 4 does not slow down your drive at all.
