iKoolCore R1 Internal Hardware Overview
The top is just held in place by four pins and pops off.
Under that top, there is a NVMe M.2 2242 SSD slot.
Here we have a 512GB NVMe SSD. The other options are no SSD and a 128GB SSD.
That 512GB 42mm m.2 NVMe SSD sits atop a double-decker internal PCB structure.
The set of three network ports are on the top PCB while the fourth is on the bottom.
The two USB Type-A ports are on the top PCB.
The USB-C and TF (microSD) ports are also on that top PCB.
The top PCB and bottom PCB are connected via two cables.
Here is the bottom side of the top PCB. Here we can see the three Intel i226-V controllers.
Undoing the screws around the standoffs allows one to open the stack.
In the middle is the CR2032 battery. The connectors on the right of the below photo are for the cables to the top PCB. Under the battery is the fourth i226-V controller.
On the other side, we can take off the heat pipe copper cooler. We can also see some of the main chips.
The cooler was contacting the Intel N6005 CPU. There are also two LPDDR4 DRAM chips. The 16GB is soldered so it is not upgradeable.
Next, let us look at the performance.
