Love the building, appears effectively engineered. Incredibly straight-forward. At initial site I was surprised by the size. It doesn't come across from the pictures. It was double-boxed. My ATX board match ideal. Who complains about mounting studs in the incorrect spot? Just move em! The front paint had peeled a bit. No instructions, but then it was enjoyable deciphering how to open the lid and install the drives. I saw 2 other reviewers who have been removing the middle fan bulkhead, I virtually did. A bit of instructions would aid. The brackets that hold the drive cages in don't stick, keep falling off. The four recessed screws to hold the front screens are difficult to get to. Description says four fans, but truly 5, fine, but I had only ordered 6 high-excellent drives and now require another. My Tower 120 Extreme CPU Cooler with a stated height of 155+/-2.0mm stands 158.5mm off the surface of the motherboard installed. Getting the dolt I am, I tried to force the cover on. As well tight, not excellent, but no harm completed. I removed 4mm plastic washers, and possibly ruined the heat sink, but got two mm clearance and enough to fit the lid. Just FYI - 155mm heat sink won't fit in this case as well effectively.My beef: Why do folks gripe about missing factors like hot-swap drive bays when it was by no means offered in the item?

Decent size. Straightforward to set up. Great deal for the income. The incorporated fans on the unit I received had been high performance PWM fans so they can be quieted by plugging into a board with PWM help and nonetheless get the benefit of higher airflow when the technique requirements it unlike all these uber-quiet but do practically nothing fans on the market nowadays. Edges can be sharp. Want there was a lot more believed put into vibration manage for the fans and the drives but you get what you spend for.

Lots of space for motherboards with front-facing SATA ports. 5 internal fans included. Nice drive bays when you get the hang of them. Very good all round worth. I had problems with the case-access buttons sticking from the beginning. Most of the time I could get it open with a small patience. Sooner or later, it got stuck so that it wouldn't open at all. I ended up applying a small "manual correction" with a screwdriver on the side to bend the catch out of the way. It seems this is a identified problem, as the Norco service guy indicated that they will be removing the feature from future versions. For now, I'd suggest avoiding the problem by bending the metal tabs for every button so that they don't catch at all, and just use a couple of the screws on the side to keep it closed. Taking the plastic off the cover was a pain. In retrospect, given that I won't be employing the access buttons, I'd have been far better off leaving it on.

Huge quantity of space inside, I dare you to come across a computer system element that will not match in a case this massive. Black powdercoating on the front looks wonderful. Lots of expandability. Case is powerful, solid steel. Spots for 9 fans! You can make a critical wind tunnel with this case. The fans they employed have a high pitched squeal to them, they really annoy you right after only a couple of minutes! I highly suggest obtaining replacement Scythe or Zalman 80mm fans if you strategy on getting this case inside earshot. I liked it so considerably I bought the 2U model 鵎) for a different project I'm developing

I'm re-reviewing this immediately after receiving to know a bit a lot more about the case.To remove the drive cages you take off the prime cover, undo 1 screw and press in two clips and you can slide the drive cages/fans out the front with no obtaining to eliminate anything else the 4 screws on the front are just to hold the front fans in spot and nothing at all else. This is quite easy once you get the hang of it.Plenty of Space!Light!Moves AIR!(stock fans are Delta brand 2-ball bearing 3000 rpm 80mm fans that move 35 cfm) Stock specs indicate a noiselevel of 31 dB. These are quite very good stock fans! Area for ten drives in the cages, and if you use all 3 drive bays you can match a different 5 in for a total of 15 3.5" drives. Wants fan guards. Suggest you choose up a few ƕ) if you will be operating on it when its in operation, mainly because the fans are extremely easy to hit when you are plugging/unplugging drive cables.. You want to spend particular interest to zip tying cables and routing if you strategy on going without having fan guards, simply because its a close 1! If you strategy on utilizing an expansion card for your Hard Drives, be sure to get 24" SATA cables (with 1 side being correct angle), due to the fact 18" is also brief to reach all the drives. 18" may possibly be fine if you are making use of motherboard connectors that are close to the edge of the MB, but be positive to get the ones with proper angle drive connections mainly because they stick out close to the fans when plugged in.If you are going to use a hot-swap bay in the 5.25" bays get 30"+ cables because its a quite lengthy reach to a RAID card. There is around 9" of depth to the five.25" bays so most hot-swap bays will match with about an inch or two of clearance to the fans.I zip-tied UV blacklight cold cathode tubes ྫྷ") to the prime and bottom of the fans (via the exposed screw holes) and it looks quite imply with UV reactive sata cables.

This case is uncomplicated but has an extreme amount of functions. This chassis can hold 10 tough drives, quickly accessible with integrated drive rails. I like the design and style of the power button and front panel and also how the four incorporated fans move A LOT of air and there is a location for two 80mm fans in the back, 1 suitable in the middle and a location for two 120 mm fans in the front. When taking the really hard drives out, you have to take the whole tough drive stack (of 5) and then when out, take away the drives. The drive brackets are on the back side of the drive trays so they open away from the front and towards the back of the case. This way you need to take the stack out to get any drives out. No directions had been incorporated and a box inside the server chassis had all the misc. further components had opened throughout shipping, causing all those components to go around on the inside of this case. The handles on the front are smaller to hold when the front cover is closed. There are two screws on the top rated of each side that you need to take away to open this case (took me a even though to come across out whilst I was just attempting to push the two huge buttons on the prime to open it.

* LOTS of drive bays.* Lots of area for fans.* Lots of space to operate* Quieter than my HP ProLiant DL380 G3* Excellent construction* Include air filter* performs with normal 26" sliding rails* Great value for money * No integrated hot-swap drive bays* drive cage mounting can be a little finicky* Front door/fan filter don't remain closed when unlocked.* Doesn't include things like two x 12cm fans for drive bays This is a fantastic case if you need to have lots of space for drives. Add an adapter to convert 2 x 5.25 to 3 x 3.5 drive bays and you get 13 internal 3.five drive bays.

Cheap, but nicely built. Has 5 middle fans and came with space for two front and two back fans. Supermicro e-atx server motherboards fit perfectly. Recently built 9 on these machines with no major difficulties. You can not take drives out very easily but we don't will need to. Cooling is superb. We place the similar motherboards in a Lian li server case and it is 20 degrees larger. For the value it is an excellent purchase.fans are quiet for a server space. Only a couple of minor points: the major cover has two push buttons to slide it out. On the other hand, they bend simply and you can get stuck. It is hard to open the situation if you get stuck. We bent the button pins to disable them since the top cover also has screws.Even even though some edges ate rounded, there are nevertheless sharp areas in the situation.The front cover does not stay closed without having locking it. The paint can also come off if you are not to cautious on the front handles or cover.It does not come with sufficient motherboard screws. We necessary 10 for the server motherboards, and the instances came with six. Other screws are a lot. In spite of the cons, provided the exceptional cooling abilities, and the price, it is an superb buy.

Cons: Quality control (too much variation between units, everything from missing screws to stock fans mounted on the wrong side). Space usage and layout of the chassis is not very efficient. The chassis is not well documented, and it's not the typical process to install hardware in, so it can take some time to learn and discover.

Pros: Very big, very roomy, very big, very heavy, very sturdy, very big. Fans are included

Too damn big for my purposes, but bigger looks better so I keep.

-This case is Huge!!! There is a lot of space even with everything installed.-You can fit so significantly in right here.-Solid Construction (with center fan supports).-Low cost, this case is worth at least twice the price!-There are extra spots to screw in additional challenging drives than provided/advertised.-Front filter does aid cut down on pet hair, my other computer systems are filled with it and this one particular is clean. -Included fans, although they may possibly move a lot of air, they are LOUD. I was planning on replacing them but with two 120mm fans in the front, they are not required. Instead of removing them, the bracket appears to provide structural support for the case so they are just sitting in there.-Front cover doesn't stay closed. I added Velcro and am happy with it.The black paint scratches effortlessly, handle with care. -Make positive you have extra extended sata and IDE cables.-Mine came with free rackmount slide out rails which are heavy and good excellent.-For this price, you can\'t go incorrect, I am preparing on ordering another a single strictly for drive storage (with modifications).-A user manual would have been good for removing cover and internal fan separator as effectively as drive bays (they pull out the front, not inward).

The two cages that hold the 10 3.5" disks can be removed, every single is the size of three x five.25" So this case actually has 9 five.25" bays. A lot of room inside for substantial heat sinks and motherboards, room for regular ATX energy provide or a redundant energy supply if you wish. The five 80mm fans are Delta brand element AFB0812H which according to specs I found are Ball Bearing, 3000RPM, 35.31CFM, 31dB-AThe filter on the front door is a good plus.Newegg threw in the rails for cost-free on my order, nice added bonus.Bottom line: If you want a 4U case, get this one, with 9 x five.25" bays it need to be in a position to accommodate whatever you want it to do, plus it is cheap and roomy. Did not contain two 80mm fans for the rear. Require essential to lock door, would be good to have a separate latch/lock so I do not need the essential to close the door. But it is affordable so I'm not taking off any eggs for either of these. I installed a single SNT-SAC2131TL 3x3.5" on the appropriate, two SNT-SAC3051TL five x three.five" in the middle and left for a total of 13 host swap bays. The remaining ideal top five.25" bay received a areca ARC-1000 LCD Manage Panel with three SNT-SAC3051TL(or related) you could have 15 hot swap bays.

I've been trying to convert all my stuff to rack mount and general this is an amazing case. Space for lots of challenging drives and even 3 five.25 drive bays. Lots of cooling, could make a wind tunnel out of this issue if you wanted. So so so substantially space to run cables and retain things neat and orderly, not shoved wherever you can uncover space. Adapter included for 3.5" card reader or floppy drive.Tool-much less rails make installing drives a breeze. Integrated air filter doesn't do a great job. My front panel was covered with dust right after just a day (this thing moves a lot of air, even without the front 120mm fans). I reduce up a furnace air filter and shoved it in the filter bracket, making use of the included 1 as a "pre-filter" and subsequent to no dust seems to be finding in. Lost some air flow but not a big deal. Lots of fans = noise no matter how good they are but overall I don't really notice it over my Television (system is in my bedroom).Middle fan bulkhead typically has to be removed to install drives (requires access to screws on sides and bottom of situation). Install all your drives at when or be prepared to have to do some operate. You need to be able to install or pull drives from the major space in the cage devoid of removing the fans. C2D E8400 desktop system. I replaced the 5 middle 80mm fans and added two rear fans with MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4. Make positive you have long adequate SATA cables, 18" and 24" based on where you're installing drives and where you're SATA ports are. May possibly want extensions for power provide cables to reach drives farthest from energy provide. I also need to locate a USB header extender to reach my card reader.Make positive you have enough room (depth) in your rack, this factor is Very deep.

This case has lots of space inside and for drives, ten HD plus three x 5 1ǚ drive slots. Lots of room for motherboard as nicely as flowthrough fans integrated. Lock came damaged and took some carrying out to get it opened. One particular standoff screw hole was in the wrong spot and I had to rig a plastic standoff for assistance of the motherboard corner. Every little thing went in genuine effortless except for the lock and support for motherboard.

I just migrated my UnRaid server to this from it's old Bitfenix case. I added a couple Noctua NF-P12s to the 2 HD cage mounts, and overall it dropped my HD temps by almost 20C. It took a bit of figuring, but I managed to reslot the HD cages to have them mount the way I'd wanted. Some documentation would've been appreciated as there's at least 3 different ways to mod the setup depending on preferences. Over all a really good bang for the buck case that does what you need it to without being flashy. Or light. (That sucker is heavy!)

Thing is massive. a lot more space than you could ever want. I am slowly filling the three.five bays and put hotswap into the 5.25 slots for backing up drives. All my drives are running 3c cooler than my old tower situation. This point has a TON of airflow. two fans came bad, like truly loud. NORCO was Far more than prepared to give me new fans no concerns asked if I mailed them the bad two (which is completely understandable) but why pay บ to ship the fans when I am just going to order new ones anyway Even with only 3 fans it runs super cool. I was going to order new quieter fans anyway considering that this monster is in my residence.

Excellent case. Extremely roomy, fits an E-ATX board really nicely. Lot's of fans. Lots of space for disk drives. Front ought to be locked, or it will fall open. Removing the drive bays is a bit of work. No Manual.The real kicker is the removable board with the fans on it. The 4 fans are connected to a single Molex power connector, which is connected to six fan headers on the board. As soon as we powered the server on for the very first time, smoke poured out and the fans did not operate. I pulled the board out and took out the power connector pcb to uncover that it was fried mainly because of some sloppy soldering. The board had a brief circuit where the solder had bridged a good point with a negative point, and the metal tracings just burned away from the juice operating via it. Ten minutes with s solder iron and some wired fixed it, but I would recommend checking for this upon receiving this situation. Even with the burning pcb situation, I'd say it is a wonderful value.

Wonderful case for spending budget builds, lots of space and case is effectively created and light.-Light-Stock fans are very quiet(for a server) however move a lot of air-lots of room for cable management-Lots of space for drives-accepts any ATX PS-accepts nearly any MB and GPU mixture, this factor is huge!-feels very sturdy, from the handles to the PSU mounts. -Front door desires to be locked to be closed, but this is quickly remedied by some velcro fasteners.-Installing/Removing drives can be a pain due to the fact of the 4 recessed access screws for each and every front drive bay. Suggest a magnetic screwdriver to assist with re-installation, otherwise you need to really stand it up to be able to get the screws back in place b/c they are recessed.-1 more front USB port would be seriously helpful Good case! superb cost/performance
