- Economical- Sturdy- Basic, utilitarian style - 98% of sheet metal edges are rounded off. The remaining 2% could catch a builder off guard. Be careful.- Best cover is wider than the chassis by about 2 mm. This causes some deflection when it is secured in place.- One of the motherboard standoffs won't grab a screw. For the cash, this is a wonderful case. Seems to have the anticipated top quality deficiencies. Manufacturer Response:Dear Newegg Consumer:We sincerely apologize in advance for any inconvenience triggered by this practical experience, but do rest assured that we will do all that we can to win your trust in iStarUSA brand. In regards to chassis's high quality, it is unlikely that the metal edges are unfinished because we used precision tooling in the manufacturing procedure. Nonetheless, we are committed to method improvement, so please send us photographs of exactly where you assume the chassis may be rough on the edges.Thank you for choosing iStarUSA.

Second case I purchased. All okay except... Power supply cutout in back panel reversed prime to bottom from the very first case I bought.

Inexpensive, strong construction, well produced,excellent airflow. two USB on the front is nice. Two fans. It's an appealing case. Drive cages are a tiny odd. As other people have talked about you can only match 2 three.5 internal drives. It's a tight match. Also you will surely not be in a position to use high profile DIMMs if you have two drives. Fans use molex connectors so no fan speed manage is obtainable, they run full out all the time. You will absolutely want a screwdriver with a magnetic tip for acquiring the drive cage screws back in! In common you will want to program the order you place items in this case to keep away from thrash.

Strong building, good type aspect, operates with desktop boards, energy supplies, and normal CPU heat sinks. none It's a half depth case for significantly less than 贄. It works great. As for the persons complaining about tight fits and loud fans, please get real. Its half depth, of course its going to be tight. MicroATX boards differ in size. Desktop boards are typically a little shorter, server boards are normally longer. can match four drives if you have a desktop board.

Really tiny footprint, shallow depth. Extruded aluminum front panel and mounting flanges are really desirable and robust. Good painted finish. Straightforward to perform on 2U chassis. Cool blue power LED. Dual USB front ports. Good case airflow. Got the case for a excellent deal when it first showed up on newegg. As other individuals have noted the bottom tray will not fit 3.5 drives if you are using a mATX board. Loud and low cost Fans, I replaced mine with LED form that are significantly quieter. Working with in a tiny HTPC build. Making use of an Nvidia ION ITX motherboard. If working with an ITX board case allows for maximum amount of 5 - three.5" drives (using optical drive also).If there is a huge concern about drive space, use 2.5" drives given that you can match eight - two.five" drives with a mATX board.

Good small case, performs completely for a Mini ITX motherboard, has mountings for four 3.5" drives suitable in front of the fans. Massive problem to remember when selecting a power provide: The power supply is mounted on the opposite side of normal (when looking at the case from the front, power supply is mounted on left side) It is also mounted upside down and has no clearance top rated, bottom, and the side against the case. When picking a energy provide be certain to grab 1 that is vented to the back of the power provide case, otherwise you will be running into cooling concerns!!!Also, my case came with only two fans, not three, even so since they are cheep fans I will be replacing them with quiet-running fans anyway so it's no big challenge. For low-power applications this is a gorgeous case, it appears nice, and is especially sturdy. Very advised for Mini-ITX applications, will be working with once again for certain.

Nice appearance. Quite beneficial internal layout. The cover is poorly made, so it is slightly wider than it wants to be. As a outcome, when I tightened the screws on the left side, the cover shifted rightward, causing the screws on the proper side to pull out. I attempted repositioning numerous approaches, and nevertheless wasn't capable to resolve this problem. Am returning to Newegg for a refund.

In the appropriate price range, excellent size and produced for a great housing to an low-cost improvement web server. Particularly quick shipping by NewEgg as usually.I can vouch the MSI G41M-P33 performs properly in this chassis, which at the moment has a excellent combo deal going on with memory and a 64-bit CPU (all hardware such as this chassis was below 跾). As mentioned just before... comes with two really loud, inexpensive fans that can pump quite a bit of air. There's room for 3 fans and I'll be replacing these soon. It may possibly have been at one time, but this chassis isn't advertised to support four drives, so I don't see why people are trying to make it do one thing it's not meant to do. I easily got two 3.five drives in there. I'd really like it if iStarUSA just removed the junk fans altogether... we're all replacing them anyhow. And as extended as you're not buying memory with friggin enormous heatsinks on each and every stick, you'll be fine in regards to clearance.A few recommendations:- As I have a two-year-old regularly entering my workplace it'd also be great to have a cover that flips or slides open/closed over the energy buttons. Would be nice to hide that vibrant blue light also.- Hot-swappable drives would be sweet.This is my initially iStarUSA chassis and I'll undoubtedly be finding more.

I purchased two of these situations. They don't really feel flimsy regardless of being sheet metal. Compact but with very good airflow. Very good for people with not a lot of space. Tight fight when adding elements. Not the most intuitive when it comes to assembly. I would buy this case once more for future systems.

Attractive 2U situation looks wonderful with the rest of my A/V gear. Nicely-built, sturdy situation. Included fans had been a bit noisy. I popped them out and installed a couple Enermax fans. Now it's whisper quiet. Screw place for some of the mounting racks is awkward. It is typically required to eliminate additional than one to install something. Technically it has room for 4 internal three.5" difficult drives, but realistically you can only install 1 even with a microATX mobo. To install additional than 1 you would have to use a modular PSU or it would be incredibly tricky to route all the power connectors. Plus if the drives were not solid state it may possibly be tricky to hold them cool in such a modest enclosure.

It's cheap and works in my rack. The 2u profile is in a position to home a typical power provide, plus several low profile components. The smaller footprint doesn't overcrowed. The system is light enough to mount on a relay rack, or by it's ears in a regular rack. I'll probably buy a different one particular to replace a 4U box. As other individuals have talked about, I'd suggest altering the two front fans. The present stock ones create a huge amount of noise. For house users this gets annoying rapidly. I'd recommend purchasing a low dBA / high CFM fan if you're NOT putting this in a information center. As mentioned use a power provide with a rear fan. A Scythe "Big Shuriken" heat sink will fit in the case. The stock AMD heat sink wasn't cutting it.. I designed a air tube from plastic and use a single front fan to blow air in the direction of the CPU. Otherwise it'll get a bit warm in the case.

- Inexpensive- Hassle-free form aspect - Insufficient airflow- Noisy fans- No air filter- Sharp edges- Screws tend to unscrew from vibration I bout this eclosure to move handful of servers from mid-tower to rack mount and the initially thing I did I tested fans and they are loud. Normally it would not be a challenge but our workplace rack is in the middle of the office and noise level is crucial.Yet another issue I noticed in the procedure that vent holes in front panel are as well smaller, so no matter what kind of fans you place in there they will never be able to deliver enough airflow.There is no air filter. Technically there is a space for it and I could install it myself but it would constrict airflow even more (I wonder if this the cause they did not put it there in a initial spot ?)Be cautious when handling this case it have some sharp conners, and what is surprising they are mainly on front handles :-) So, I ended up "filing it to taste" :-)I'm giving it "so-so" mark largely because of poor ventilation. I would rater spend added then danger overheating my servers, but it appears like this is the only selection offered in this form f Manufacturer Response:Dear Newegg Customer:We sincerely apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by this experience, but do rest assured that we will do all that we can to win your trust in iStarUSA brand.

Great cooling, utilizes standard power supplies, mATX principal boards, etc. Simple to perform on, rugged construction. Effortless to mount the motherboard and power power supply. Drive cages are difficult to take away and replace due to location of screws. Should use a distinct mechanism to hold them in place. Removing/replacing drives is tough. I will replace the fans with quieter ones. I would not expect better ones at this price point.

Review Date: 11/06/11
This case is awesome. Extremely solid construction and I recommend it. none Be careful if you obtain soon after industry vans. It does fit 3 80mm fans but since of the fan housing is narrow in width 80mm x 25mm fans will do. It does fit common ATX Form Factor PSU and Would advocate purchasing a modular PSU due to the smaller size of the case.

Review Date: 08/31/11
Bought mainly for size as it is only 15" deep. Built reasonably nicely. Drive cages are a discomfort! Says it has space for 4 31ǘ drives...Ha! Drive cages have space for 4 drives but would not fit with motherboard installed. 2 would be max. Extremely bright blue energy led. Does what i need it to installed MSI 890GXM motherboard with AMD Athlon II X2 Regor - 4 GB ram dual mirrored sata 80gb drives for OS with external estata box for data.

Review Date: 07/20/11
It's a superior case for the cost, but you have to know what you're obtaining into.- Tiny- Built reasonably well- Price - 4 internal drive bays is false advertising. Only two are usable simply because the motherboard interferes with the bottom two bays.- If you have tall RAM, the challenging drives interfere.- The hard drives also interfere with the 2nd DIMM slot, so you can only have 1 DIMM (uATX board) It's a really tight fit in there. Greater to have a power supply with shorter cables, so you don't have a major wad of cables you have to stick somewhere (I put mine under the DVD drive).
