This review is from: ARK 3U550PS Black 3U Rackmount Server Case 420W 4 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: 3U heights Solid, well made construction Nice lay out, allows for many different configurations Front mounted PSU
Cons: Very difficult to work with. All the drive cages are bolted down and you have nearly disassemble the entire case to get your drives in their respective places. It is not hard, it is just tedious.
PSU bay is only designed for PSUs with a flow through cooling designed (air flows from front to back only). Most PSUs that have the intake fan on the bottom an the exhaust out the back will not work without significant modification to the case. I had to get my Dremel tool out to cut a hole in the bottom of the PSU tray for the PSU to breath as the one included did not have enough power for the system I was using (did not have to cut a hole in the bottom of the case itself, just the PSU tray). If you do this, you will lose the 5.25 bay below the PSU to allow for airflow.
Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice case. I had to take off two eggs due to the difficulty to work with it. If Ark were to make the case easier to use PSUs with different airflow designs and adopt a sliding rail system for the cages, this would be a much better case.
