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 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 thermal pad. The adhesive is bit strong so if you have any intention to void the 3 years of 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.
The formatted capacity of the drive is 83.8GB. After you install Windows 7 64Bit Home Premium+ SP1+ All the updates+ MS Office, Avira Security Suite, U-Torrent, Gimp 2.8+ atleast 5-6 softwares more (not games), you have about 52.8GB left.
