1 out of 5 eggsARK IPC-2U238 - DOES NOT MEET SPEC

Pros: Use: Small Business File Server
Configuration: ASUS H97M-E/CSM uATX Motherboard
16 GB RAM (2 x 8 GB)
Four 4TB HGST NAS SATA 3 hard drives - RAID 1 with hot spare, 4th drive used for backups
Nice, well made case.

Cons: Cannot screw down 1 of the 2 hard drive brackets. Lower hard drive presses against ATX 24-pin power connector on motherboard and bends the motherboard.
Case is NOT USABLE with 4 hard drives.


Other Thoughts: Power supply MUST have vents on the ends of the supply - towards the front of the case and the rear where the power cord connects. The bottom of the case and top of the case fit flush with the power supply. Power supplies with a big fan on the bottom, which is most power supplies (PSUs), will have the big fan inlet blocked.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect inexpensive case

Pros: This is a perfect entry level rackmount case. The quality is quite high for the price. I bought three of these and expect I'll buy three more in the coming months. I honestly expected some sharp edges, burrs and shotty workmanship at this price point but all three were not to be found! The front of the case is handsome and simple I was pleased that there was a plastic sheet liner included, to isolate the bottom of the motherboard from the bottom of the case. No trouble at all installing a ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX board, Samsung EVO SSD, Kingston HyperX RAM, and an Antec 380 watt Earthwatts PS. This case gets the job done well, for under a hundred bucks.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsNice smaller rack mount case

Pros: Low price, clean looks, rigid metal, rear mounted power supply option, plenty of ventillation, front mounted usb ports, plenty of low profile PCI expansion slot openings.

Cons: The 80mm fans were sleeve bearing fans, but at this price point thats to be expected. I replaced them for under 10 dollars with some longer life ball bearing fans. Not too big of a deal.

My first case came damaged in a perfectly packaged box. Must have been dropped in the factory?? Newegg sent out an advanced replacement. Service here as usual is second to none.

Blue light is obnoxiously bright. Not a real con to me, but for someone that might be using this thing as a home theater pc, they would most likely put a piece of tape over it.

No major flaws in my opinion that I would knock off an egg for.

Other Thoughts: I built a small firewall box (runnning PfSense software) with this case. I like the fact that the power supply is connected to the rear of the case, unlike some in this size niche that mount it in the center of the case. The case is pretty solid and very clean looking.

Overall, I am very happy with it and would recommend this case.
