4 out of 5 eggsGreat 3U server case

Pros: Uses standard ATX Power supply, lots of room and four 5.25" bays.

Cons: While it accepts a normal ATX power supply, not all fit easily and the air flow is backwards for a normal ATX power supply. I was a bit concerned about this at first, but the power supply has stayed cool so far.

Other Thoughts: I was able to fit an OCZ ZX 850W supply in this by stacking two brass motherboard stand-offs between the powersupply and the case bracket.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than identical AthenaPower

Pros: Longer cord/wire lengths on these cases than the AthenaPower. Better PSU mounting bracket. Otherwise, its the same case as AthenaPower, but allows for a better power supply to be used.

Cons: NO PSU supplied. This case is ten dollars cheaper than the Athena Power equivalent case because there is no power supply.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 AthenaPower cases initially, needed PSU extension cables for those cases. Have purchased 6 ARK cases since and will be getting 7 more with preferred PSU that doesn't need extra cables.

3 out of 5 eggsnot too bad

Pros: Lots of room & cheap. It has plenty of rail mounting holes, so I was able to use some leftover SUN mounting rails with it (had to drill a few holes in the SUN rails)

Cons: Front Bezel fell (half) off within 2 days. I didn't really like it anyway, so I took it off-brackets and all.

Other Thoughts: You will probably need to buy a 4-pin CPU power extension.

4 out of 5 eggsNice roomy case

Pros: Lots of room, takes regular atx power supply

Cons: 5 screws to remove the case cover, case can get out of square

Other Thoughts: Nice that it takes a regular atx power supply, but kind of annoying that it mounts in the front and exhausts through the front of the case. Doesn't follow the standard front to back airflow

4 out of 5 eggsLots of room

Pros: Lots of room for plenty of drives. Recieves larger mobos and power supplies.

Cons: Overall construction was great but I noticed that chassis was out of square from factor and some holes/slots took some slight modding to get them to line up perfectly. Also one screw was stipped out (prob. b/c of alignment problem).

Other Thoughts: I managed to mount my thermaltake 550w power supply upfront and still had tons of room for harddrives (currently 5--and still more bays) Fans move a lot of air (which is good) but they are really loud.
