SuperMicro's 2U rackmount server chassis gives you the space you need for a large corporate server. It is designed to hold EATX motherboards up to 13"x13.68" so you can use today's advanced multi-processor architecture. Seven full-length, low profile slots allow for system expansion. The redundant 700W power supplies maximize uptime.

The front panel is taken up by 8 hot swappable 3.5" SAS/SATA drive trays. There is also a slim DVD-ROM to load system and data files. A slim 1.44MB floppy can be added if necessary. In between the system board and drive bays is an array of three 80mm fans.

Once the system is built, installing it into the rack is extremely easy, as is servicing the system later. Instead of having to hold it in place while trying to tighten the mounting screws, you simply install the sliding brackets, drop the chassis in, slide it into place, lock it down and that’s it - turning a cumbersome job into an easy task that takes mere moments!

  • newegg Excellent Expandability with 9 Drive Bays Featuring eight 3.5” SAS / SATA hot-swappable drive bays and one slim optical drive bay (for the included DVD-ROM drive), the CSE-825TQ-R700LPB provides excellent expandability.
  • newegg Efficient Ventilation The SuperMicro CSE-825TQ-R700LPB features three 80mm 6300 RPM fans for efficient ventilation and effective system cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsDelicious

Pros: This is VERY nicely designed but I've pretty much switched to SuperMicro for my servers. So, my Supermicro server boards fit beautifully. This is a machine with 12 bays, 10 are hot-swap and the OS drives that I mirror are slick. There's a squeeze clip at the end that allows you to push the tray out the front. You just insert the drives, screw-em in and you are done. It came with a slim CDROM too.

Cons: There's an issue with the distance to the backplane connectors from the board. One of them is 18". Problem when they only include 5 various size SATA/SAS cables. Where's the other 5? I'm happy I have an assortment of cables in-house and this didn't cause me problems.

Other Thoughts: This thing is a bargain at the price. I used the SuperMicro AMD dual proc C32 board with the integrated LSI SAS connector. Very, very, nice.

4 out of 5 eggsI have always liked these Cases

Pros: I have always liked the way these cases were designed with the Had slots. I have always used the super micro boards in the cases as well. The cooling fans pretty much out perform anything else I have used and you can swap them out while the system is running. Out of 5 systems I have only had one power supply go out on me. We had a backup so we got to swap that out while it was running.

Cons: While super micro stuff seems design pretty well. They are really a pain to deal with. I had 5 motherboards lost the network interface all at once. It wasn't even worth dealing with them or the down time, I had to order network cards to get the systems up and working. Otherwise with them it can take up to 1 month to get things replaced.

Other Thoughts: The people are smart and I have had great phone support. To replace the hardware or any type of replacement they will ask for a credit card to cover the full cost then refund it back to you. I really don't like this.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plenty of room
Good cooling
Redundant power supplies
Seems pretty high quality and is relatively inexpensive for what it is.
This case is great for what I needed. I would definitely recommend this case!

Cons: It's pretty loud. It does a good job cooling everything and I can't hear it with the IT room door closed so it's not that big of a deal.

2 out of 5 eggsSuperMicro Power Supply doesn't work with Asus Board

Pros: Well-built case. Plenty of room for drives in a tiny 2U size. Easy removal of fans, drives, etc.

Cons: Got 2 cases and returned them both. The PSU would not work with an Asus Z8PE-D12 board. Used a generic competitor case with a similar power supply and it worked fine. Apparently SuperMicro wants you to use their own boards. When I've used a SuperMicro board with the case, it works fine.

Other Thoughts: Support wanted me to send the ENTIRE thing to them so they could test it (meaning the board, case, drives, CPUs, RAM, etc). Fat chance. Not buying another SuperMicro case again, and I build about 50-100 of these things a month. Bummer.

4 out of 5 eggsMe Likey

Pros: 8 3.5" hot swappable HDD bays & 2 3.5" fixed/internal HDD bays + slim SATA DVD drive. My SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SBE mainboard fit this case just fine. Redundant PSUs. My build was fairly painless and quick. Chassis seems very sturdy. The 3 large fans between the BP and the mobo are pretty strong and I can't imagine anything overheating in this box.

Cons: Fans are loud but that is to be expected with a chassis of this type (large rackmount server). The manual seemed a bit lacking to me. This was my first from scratch server build that included a backplane and there seemed to be little info on the BP or the info was somewhat confusing. I still don't know where some of the cables should terminate but things are up and running.

Other Thoughts: I would have liked to have seen some more in depth info on the different ways to hook up the backplane. I also would have preferred to pay a little extra and have Supermicro include a few cable extensions for things like SPGIO, I2C, etc.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case, One annoyance.

Pros: Sturdy Construction, Rails. Cooling/airflow is suprisingly good. I'd say its about 20-30% quieter than comparable 2U HP servers. All cables and connectors plugged right into the SUPERMICRO MBD-X8DAH+-F-O motherboard and everything worked the first time the power was pressed. This model also includes a SAS/SATA Backplane that supports SGPIO or IC^2.

Cons: Power Cables!! The power distribution unit comes with cables that are approximately .5m login, but on Supermicro motherboards the power connector is right smack next to where the cables come out. I had a horrible time trying to route the cables and ended up having to remove a break out section of the air shroud to get it on. This is after bundling them all as tight as I could with zip-ties.

Other Thoughts: Great case still. They should have made the cables short so they fit cleanly with a SuperMicro Motherboard and then provided extensions.

I would've gave it a 4.5 egg if I could have.

5 out of 5 eggsOne more thing

Pros: One of the reviews states that it only has 1 8 pin power connector. All 4 of my cases came with 1 short 8 pin (with an extension included) 1 long 8 pin and 1 long 4 pin power plug so I am not sure if this is a new revision or not but I have all the PSU connections needed. So if you are buying now, I would imagine it will come like mine did.

Cons: See previous post

Other Thoughts: See previous post

3 out of 5 eggsQuestionable...

Pros: Excellent construction, built in slim DVD, solid, dual PSU for redundancy, 8 hot-swap bays. Good case if you want to save money on building your own server and want redundant PSU's and 8 drive trays

Cons: No manual included, I bought 4 of these and all have no documents. Went online found PDF manual, horrible, very vague and no description of extra or general parts that are supplied with the case! I am not a Supermicro expert, but there seems to be a ton of extra parts that I have no clue what they are for. Also the specification on newegg doesn't specify that it comes with an IDE DVD drive, I already bought SATA dvd drives and motherboards that don't support IDE.. Had I known, I would have bought mobos that have IDE headers. Overall, seems like the case is primarily designed to work with Supermicro motherboards. Fan shroud barely fit on the asus P7F series and the ATX 24 pin power connector JUST barely made it to the socket. Case comes with an 8 port backpane and yet they pack 4 sata cables?? Go figure, for this kind of money, I am sure they could afford to actually provide 8 sata cables with locking tabs.

Other Thoughts: We considered buying D@LL servers and having 8 hdd's in raid 6 on a quad core xeon with 12gb ram was going to cost us well over $8 grand each. We bought 5 servers total (1 different supermicro case) and we got a xeon quad core 12gb server with 8x74gb 15k rpm systems for about $2600 each. Well worth the money despite minor headaches. Now we have a whole new rack of servers for less than $20k in comparrison to $40k+ for other pre-built companies. Only drawback is the warranty, since only the parts have individual warranty, we bought 1 extra set of everything to swap onsite.

This Case
Asus P7F-C/4L
3 x Kingston 2x2GB DDR3 ECC REG (12GB Total)
Areca ARC-1220 Raid Controller
Intel Xeon X3450 Cpu
8 x Seagate 74gb 15k rpm @ Raid-6
