Size and cost are important. It has a great sized energy supply to help dual core CPU's and two tough drives. It also does not demand the use of rails, it can be mounted utilizing the ears only. Have to acquire adapter cable to use front panel or make your personal. Even though made for supermicro mobo's you can use just about any micro-atx board. I have applied each MSI and Gigabyte boards in these and know of an integrator that operates for my data center that uses ASUS boards. The rear IO panel is removable by means of two little screws. Remove panel and throw in the scrap metal pile. My data center has actually hundreds of these cases getting employed for every thing from mail servers to firewalls.

Excellent cost and fantastic airflow. None actually. Just have to acquire some other stuff to go with it. Somebody already described the split cable for the front panel and correct angle cables were described for SATA hard drives. But in actuality you require left angle cables. Newegg sells the left angle SATA data cable but not the energy cable. Search for "left angle Serial ATA signal energy device assembly" and you will discover left angle information and power combined.

Great case, one particular of the handful of I've identified with area for two drives (see cons nonetheless), and a complete ATX mobo to boot! Fan performs well, and keeps the entire system cool. Drive bay clearances are Really tight. You'll want to get leftangle satacables and power adapters from a retailer such as sata-cables.com (sorry newegg, but you don't sell them anyway). Excellent value for your dollars in .5u depth space. We've got 63 of these babies with Core2Duos in them in a 42u rack, and they all perform excellent, kept at about 50 degrees Cel, under load.

Modest, sturdy, affordable, elements fit inside properly. My Untangle firewall was up and operating in about 30 minutes. A riser card would have been icing on the cake, but wasn't required. I really should have purchased a couple much more. Newegg continues to impress.

Top quality cost-effective server chassis. I presently use this situation for five servers, and quickly it'll replace several of the remaining servers. The case is extremely light: carrying four completed servers with this case isn't a large challenge. Effective fan. The brief profile permits for mounting straight to the front of racks with no the require for rails. Tough drive is a little tight, but fits. You'll will need an adapter to attach the front panel to a non-Supermicro board. (one of the other reviewers references the needed parts). Overall, this is promptly becoming the new staple of my future server builds.

Really slim and brief chassis, this is a large space saver.Low profile chassis. Really loud blower fan. Not for property use unless you don't thoughts the sound. Also will need unique motherboards and supermicro heatsink for CPU. Only particular supermicro motherboards fit. I purchased this as an attempt in generating a central file server for household use, but this fan is pretty loud. Ended up placing inside colocation cabinet. Know in advanced what M/B and CPU heatsink to buy ahead of time.

- Very Space Excellent- I/O Plate Matches Most SuperMicro Motherboards- Quite Very good Price - No Fan Redundancy- Extremely Loud Process Fan What can I say, it's a great case. The only thing I don't like about it is that there's no fan redundancy. While that can be replaced, it's difficult for a person like me who lives � from the data center. Just as a side note, be positive to get left angle sata cables or it won't perform at all. Also get a P4 to sata power connector as effectively (right angle). I haven't noticed any on NewEgg but do some browsing. These cables are definitely crucial or your configuration won't operate.

No expenssive rackmount rails necessary, mounts employing the intergrated ears, extremely good airflow for such modest case. Very nicely built, fairly solid for cost range. Really loud systm fan, but won't matter in a colo cabinet! For Non-SuperMicro Motherboards you need to order these cable(s) from SuperMicro:Long = Component # CBL-0068L ( 16 Pin Panel Split Cable )Short = part # CBL-084 ( 16 Pin Panel Split Cable=================================For SATA Drives you need to have:Proper Angle SATA Connector(s)Proper Angle SATA Energy Cable(s)

Tiny, lightweight case. Comes with a bracket to hang on the wall. Good LED information with overheat and LAN activity. Quite tight spacing for tricky drives. The style has not been updated for SATA drives, so like other people have said, get some 90 degree power adapters and SATA cables. Not a enormous concern, but a a lot more modern day design would save on parts and pricing for me. I would give it five eggs if it had been "SATA compliant" Most 90 degree SATA cables want to point downwards, so make positive you get some that go upwards like this item number: N82E16812189198Get a 1U heatsink or fan/heatsink combo. There is a fantastic fan/heatsink for Intel builds right here: N82E16835114075. I located a copper SuperMicro heatsink elsewhere and I'm going to try that for my subsequent construct.Many people today complain about the noise of the fan, but if you couple this with a SuperMicro motherboard (probably others), you can turn down the fan speed in the BIOS and it is essentially very quiet.

This chassis is wonderful its small affordable and the blower truly does a very good job of cooling. front panel connector is a proprietary supermicro connector so other boards may well not have the proper pin layout, not critical to me because it will be in a data center where no one particular will ever see the lights or ever need to have to use the power button. general fantastic chassis, might not be the greatest for household users but great for uses where it will never ever need to have to be touched once more.

Fits on our oddball 16.five" deep rack intended for audio equipment. Low price. Fits normal ATX and micro ATX boards. 20Ʋ pin power. I'm worried about airflow over the tricky disk places. I have not owned it lengthy adequate to see if this is a difficulty.There is no room for a 5.25" optical drive, get a USB external if you ever need to have to read/write optical media. Has no SATA power, will will need to get a molex->SATA power converter.Desires break-out cable for switches and LED's, as noted by other poster. I did not uncover this cable at Newegg, but they are Ů-บ each and every, Ű-ผ with shipping, from other suppliers. No riser card. No ears for attachment to rear rail. Only solution I have for my shallow rack. Could fit two in a single rackspace on a 30"+ deep rack. I'd happily spend far more for a more ready-to-go package containing: 1) ears/brackets for rear rackmount rail 2) molex->SATA power converter 3) chassis switch/LED breakout for non-SuperMicro mBoard

Cheap excellent make excellent for the price. Incredibly little. I enjoy Newegg shipping. Tight cable routing. Description is incorrect this does not contain rails. My colo calls for them so it was a challenge for me. Verify your motherboard the power provide in this case only has a four pin 12V connector. If you are using SATA drives cabling is tight. You will most likely need to have appropriate angle sata information and power cables.

Wonderful tiny size 1U rackmount chassis if all you require is a modest case with only one difficult drive. There is space for two difficult drives, but it's quite challenging to fit two drives in there. One drive fits fine, but it's still a bit of a challenge to get it in, specially if you have large fingers.Component of the problem with acquiring a second drive in there is the old style Molex power connectors for the tricky drives. I had difficulties with the Molex to SATA power adapter acquiring in the way of at least one of the mounting screw holes for the difficult drive, creating it practically impossible to seat the drive adequately. It seemed the only way for the power wires/adapter to go was beneath the difficult drive (which isn't such a excellent concept anyway). It also produced it so the case would not close effectively. Others have talked about that the front panel connector is proprietary Supermicro, meaning that it is a single connector that fits the panel pins on Supermicro motherboards perfectly. This is only a drawback if you use motherboards other than Supermicro. Due to the fact I use Supermicro motherboards exclusively for my servers, I consider this an benefit rather than a drawback.

1U chassis with decent power provide. two 3.5" bays (see beneath). Chassis fan moves a considerable amount of air. Requires molex energy adapters for HDDs (requiring molex to SATA adapter if employing drives manufactured immediately after 2003). Even with appropriate angle SATA power and data cables I had to removed the fan assembly in order to mount the drives. Far to cramped in my case to use the fan although mounting 3.5" drives. PSU has 4-pin motherboard power adapter. Utilizing a Supermicro MBD-X7SLM-L-O I still neede the 4 and 24 pin extensions in order to hook power to the MB. Fortunately the HDDs I utilised with this chassis run very cool, so among the active CPU cooler and the PSU fan I don't anticipate overheat in the rack. If you were utilizing a passive cooler, counting on the chassis fan to cool it you would be in a negative way. Perhaps if you applied 2.five" drives with an adapter it wouldn't be impossible.

Compact. Easy to achieve access. Has two drive bays. Does not need rails. 1) Hard to wedge 1 three.five" SATA drive in, let alone two. With correct adapter brackets, 2.five" drives may possibly perform superior.2) I advise this be applied only in a data center, not a household or workplace atmosphere due to noise from case blower and CPU fan.three) When rack mounted, will droop devoid of help from other equipment. Could be a issue when a number of of these are installed together.

Compact, low expense, reliable, no mounting rails expected. Dual drive bays good for RAID 1 setup. Somewhat loud fan, no wiring diagram for special front panel connector. I have numerous of these in service. The oldest has been running 24ǝ for three+ years making use of a inexpensive desktop assortment MSI motherboard. Expect to create your own connections to the front panel if using a non-SuperMicro motherboard. Not also difficult if you're handy with a multi-meter and soldering iron.

Quite compact and efficient use of space. Can squeeze in four drives. Cabling can be tough. You need to have almost everything to be the right length. Count on to custom make energy cable/splitters if you use two or more drives. With non SM motherboards, the blower induces noise into the energy supply rails which interferes with SATA comms. Our "usual" MB has the fan energy jack proper next to the SATA connectors and tough driver transfer rates toggled all the way down to 1MB/sec. The fan genuinely wants a separate, direct off the power provide lead plus a couple of ferrite chokes.

More than the week i have found that the front mount fan interferes with the tricky drives. do now all fans are ripped out. difficulty solved.

Short, comparatively nice searching, sturdy. Inteneded mainly for SuperMicro motherboards. Quite loud blower. I got this for a residence application (firewall) due to the fact it is quite tiny. On the other hand the smallness poses troubles. It would only fit motherboards with no vertical sound connector, like all 1U enclosers. The biggest issues however are a extremely loud blower (close to 60dB) and the power/reset/harddrive connectors are in a block that is certain to SuperMicro. None of these is a showstopper with the appropriate determination but they price extra time or income.

This is a simple case for the "why spend far more" crowd willing to turn a screwdriver. Its interior layout is clean, with two separate cooling zones: 1 for the difficult drives and 1 for the motherboard, with an internal platic partition dividing the two. The fit is a bit tight on the hard drives, but the drives get reasonable ventilation due to the location of the blower which cools the motherboard compartment (the blower intake is in the HD compartment, which itself is ventilated from the outside, so there will be airflow over each drives). The case itself is sturdy and cleanly laid out, and there is no "sag" if you mount it by the brackets on the front only. While noisy in an workplace setting, by server standards it's not loud at all. The packaging is sturdy, too... it would take serious effort to damage it in shipping. Highest praise from me: not only will I get much more for perform, but I bought 1 for myself for my own hobbyist server with my own money. The power connectors are "previous generation": 4-pin Molex only for the challenging drives (you will need a SATA energy cable adapter if your drives do not have "classic" energy only), and no EPS-12V ྸ-pin Ʋ pin CPU power only). This will limit your motherboard choice a small, although in a case this smaller you don't want numerous CPUs anyway. Also, the front panel connector is Supermicro-proprietary, and the rear IO shield is not a conventional design (you can\'t use the typical pop-in shield that tends to come with motherboards). But given that Supermicro has a big assortment of motherboards with the suitable layout and front panel header, some for incredibly reasonable costs, this is not an impediment. Just make certain you get a motherboard with the proper back-panel layout and no audio headers, unless you're incredibly brave and equipped with a Dremel tool. My create, which has worked flawlessly and comes in at well under 5 hundred dollars, consists of a Supermicro PDSBM-LN2+ motherboard (Socket 775), an Intel "Allendale" 1.8ghz dual-core CPU, a Dynatron P168 active low-profile heatsink, 2gb of Kingston DDR2먳 memory (the above motherboard does not require ECC), and a pair of Western Digital 320gb SATA difficult drives. Yes, the M/B in question has an 8-pin CPU power header, but with the four-pin energy from the case' power provide in the initial four positions on the header it worked just fine. It all went together with no hassle, booted up the first time, took a CentOS install, and has been performing as well as the Dell servers above and below it... for a quarter of the expense.

-Economical 1U case that can fit mostly any ATX or M-ATX motherboard-Rack mountable -Power supply does NOT have SATA power connectors. Definitely SuperMicro??-Breakout cable for front panel controls/lights needed if not using SM board -If utilizing a non SM motherboard your IO shield won't fit on the back of the case. If this is going into a datacenter this isn't a problem, but for anyplace else it allows for excess dust to enter the chassis-H-U-G-E FAN Problem! Seriously, on the newest revisions of this case the case fan will interfere with your SATA communications and mess up your HDDs. Ferrite chokes didn't genuinely aid, nor did a direct lead off of the power supply. The fan generates some kind of interference when its on and wreaks havoc on SATA communications. That's why this case got 1 Egg...this problem is Merely UNACCEPTABLE! If you get this case and run into the fan problem I've described above you want to purchase SM component FAN-0038 or FAN-0038L. How do I know this? We had a few spare fans about the office from older SM instances. They don't interfere with SATA and FAN-0038 is the only model that you can nonetheless come across on the internet in significant quantities.It's sad that a business as massive as SuperMicro has not notice this issue. Maybe they are under the illusion that everybody nonetheless makes use of molex and IDE drives! (it's what the case supports out of the box anyways!)
