Most Excellent File Server Case

Jason V., Newegg
20 February 2015
  • Summary: This is a server case, not one you want to use for your gaming rig. Its power supply is perfectly sized to handle a CPU (or two) and 8 drives. Don't think you're going to drive 2 big nVidia or AMD graphics cards with it because it's not adequate for that.

It has multi...
  • Cons: The cables for the case fans are relatively short, and you will need extensions depending on your motherboard. You will also need 4 PWM fan connectors on your MB: there probably won't be that many on a typical consumer motherboard, so verify the number and location in advance. The fans are extrem...
