Cons: no instructions and only 2 sata power leads I have 4 sata hdd and 1 sata dvdrom, I need to buy 3 molex to sata converters. on a deadline for this build and it doesn't help having to run out to get stuff you expected to be in there.
Pros: This case is well built. You can add additional fans and hard bays. I am using this case with the Intel DX79SR, intel i7-3930k and 64GB ram kingston HyperX two sets of (2 x 8GB) N82E16820104316. This case also supports with USB 3.0 Power supply has plenty of power.
Cons: You might need a SATA power adapter if you add more than 2 SATA drives.
Summary: Basically, if you literally want a plain case without anything fancy this is the case for you.
Pros: A case and PSU for the price is very comparable. Plenty of power cables for nearly everything you might want to plug in.
Cons: Of course it's not the "coolest" case around but if you only care about the hardware itself (which I did) then it's a great case. It also had a problem with shorting out my motherboard so I had to put some material down in between to stop that.
Summary: Used this to build a Windows Home Server with upgrading/expansion in mind down the road. I should have paid attention to the number of hard drive bays before pulling the trigger, though. Caveat emptor!
Pros: Cavernous case, great for building servers. Would be capable of swallowing motherboards and expansion cards of any size that I can fathom. Good quality on the 500W PSU, and both the PSU fan and case exhaust fan below it are frankly inaudible when fired up. Ample internal cords and connectors from the PSU, and lots of room to tuck the extras away. Looks very much like a high-end HP/Compaq tower server, with the angled vents running up most of the front. Nice HDD cage t...
Cons: For the size of this case, the number of 3.5" hard drive bays is rather meager! (4). There is tons of room in this thing, and I think most people in the market for this type of box are intending to use it for servers and mass storage. There is room ahoy to rig something up, but only four official bays is dumb and a letdown. Mine had no manual, so I don't know what some headers are, like "OH LED" and "POWER FAIL". Where do these go? Must be something on more serious se...
Summary: I tossed my sc743 chassis in exchange for this one for 3 reasons.
Pros: *Solid construction.
Cons: never was able to test drive the chassis. I hit the power button and nothing happened. I looked inside the case to make sure everything was hooked up correctly, and realized that the onboard LED on the mobo was off. The board must have suffered ESD during transfer... To bad the warrenty has expired.
Super Servergehäuse, speziell für Supermicro Motherboards
25 May 2013
Summary: Ich habe das Gehäuse zum Supermicro X9SAE Motherboard bestellt. So ist das optimal abgestimmt. Das Gehäuse ist gut verarbeitet mit schwenkbarem HDD Käfig. Das Netzteil ist 80Plus (genaue Last-Charts etc. sinde auf der supermicro-Homepage verfügbar!) und die Kabellängen mehr als ausreichend. Den Preis finde ich mit dem Netzteil sehr fair. Empfehlung!!
