5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Inexpensive yet high quality. With a Supermicro motherboard everything fit together nicely. Very quick assembly time.

Cons: The pictures are a bit deceiving, in that the backplane for the optical drive wasn't included. The fake floppy drive on the front is a bit ugly too.

Other Thoughts: You can't beat it for the price. I am very happy with the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsSlick low-end case

Pros: I'm very impressed with this tiny little case. It works great as a small server. Comes with enough hot-swap bays. It comes WITH a PSU. Just pretty slick all around and only $250? Sweet deal.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Be conscious that a LOT of Supermicro cases require a Supermicro board! I've had great luck with them when building small servers.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat choice for Intel S1200BTLR application

Pros: Near-perfect fit for Intel S1200BTLR motherboards. Reasonably roomy, quality construction, no modifications required. No blood sacrifice required during assembly (no sharp edges). Sleds for hot swap storage work well. Rack rails and all fasteners (including motherboard standoffs) included.

Cons: No SATA power supply connectors, but largely irrelevant as storage backplane is compatible. Storage sleds do not have key locks. Short fan and power cables. No option to use riser card (all PCI cards will need to be low profile).

Other Thoughts: Near perfect fit for an Intel S1200BTLR server motherboard using an RMM4LITE. All cables except case fan #4 reached (get a 12" extension). Power supply cables are a tight reach, though did work out okay. No unusual modification required for standoffs, and IO shield supplied by Intel fit perfectly. Supermicro's storage backplane has six individual SATA connectors; will need two more (70cm) cables in addition to those supplied by Supermicro and Intel to cable storage backplane.

5 out of 5 eggsReally nice performing chassis

Pros: Versatile, Nice working hot swap bays, nice cooling system, nice two button lid instead of screws to hold the lids on, comes with p/s and cable management is decent enough.
Case is Satisfactorily modified by snipping down motherboard mounts that are not going to be used to use the case safely with non-supermicro (GASP) motherboards.

Cons: Motherboard stand off mounts are non-standard and for non-supermicro boards have to be snipped off. (Should be snipped off to prevent arcing / touching on non-supermicro boards)

Other Thoughts: Wish the case actually didnt have the supermicro screw mount standoffs in the first place so non-supermicro motherboards would natively fit without having to modify the cases. OH WELL. Life goes on, they work great for me... i have multiple units and not at all discouraged by such a thing.
These units are great imho because they come with basically everything you really need and fit our OEM re-purposing very well for the money, its a better case for a bit more money and that quality more than makes up for its shortcomings with the mount standoffs.
I just wish i could find a vendor for glass paper cheap enough to pad the bottom layer under the motherboards for an extra layer of safety.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Solid construction and power supply included for a great price. MB Tray easy to configure. Drive trays and backplane work well.

Cons: Case Fans have short connections, I ordered two 6" fan power splitters to get all 4 plugged in, not a lot of extra money but a required add-on to utilize all 4.

Other Thoughts: I mounted this case in a StarTech 4POSTRACK25 and there is some friction/pressure on the rails. They still work fine, but they're just a tiny bit too wide to fit in comfortably. I have mounted these in Dell rack cabinets before with no issues. So keep exact mounting width in mind when pairing a Supermicro case with provided rails with a lower tier rack. I'm still happy with it.

4 out of 5 eggsNot perfect but good for tight budgets

Pros: Despite some issues, this is an excellent value for the money, considering that it includes a stable power supply AND the rack rails. At maximum load my system doesn't even come close to maxing out the 400W power supply.

The construction is solid for a chassis of this price.

Despite what some people say, I find the fan noise quite reasonable compared to screaming HP rack-mounted servers. The fans are easily popped out for cleaning or replacement.

O/S: Windows Home Server PP3
5 WD Caviar Black disk drives (various sizes)
Samsung TS L462 CD-RW/DVD-ROM
Nvidia Geforce 7300GS low-profile video card
Scythe KM01-BK fan controller
SIIG SC-SAE212-S2 eSata card

Cons: Documentation is sparse.

The 12V ATX power cable is too short, but a inexpensive extension cable fixes that easily.

The drive sleds are very tight, requiring some effort (and care) in inserting and removing them.

The front-panel LEDs don't work but I'm not sure if this is a defect or a voltage-mismatch issue with the mobo.

My CD-RW/DVD-ROM drawer sticks because the case front cut-out for it is slightly too small.

The 5.25" bay had an incomprehensible metal factory insert that was obviously designed to be used in some way after reversing it but I could never figure out how to make use of it so the Scythe fan controller I have in this bay is unsecured on one side. No big deal here.

Other Thoughts: If you're limited on cash and need a rack-mount chassis and are willing to put up with a few issues, this one may be for you.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well but very long

Pros: I bought this to use with a Supermicro motherboard and everything connected fine. The hot-swap drives are sturdy and work well. The included power supply works with the case and allows you to use all 6 Sata bays along with using a disk drive or/and a 7th hard drive. The case opens with ease, no unscrewing just two push down tabs and pops open making it easy to work on.

Cons: The four fans have very short cables, impossible to connect to a micro atx motherboard. I disconnected two of the fans and cables to daisy chain the cables as extenders to plug in just two of the fans. The case is very very long and if you have an enclosed cabinet make sure you have the room for such a long case.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to buy 4pin fan ext. cables if you want to use all four fans.

4 out of 5 eggsA decent midline case

Pros: Good, solid case. Comes with rail kit. Airflow is good. Fans are easily removed and are of good quality. So far, PS failures have been rare.

Cons: Tight. Very tight. The cases are built as big as they can get them, which means they tend to interfere with other equipment.

The big drawback is that they don't take the standard ATX I/O port back panel. If your motherboard does not fit the I/O panels provided, you may have to leave it off or have custom ones cut (we've started leaving them off in our data center when we remove a motherboard for repairs).

Other Thoughts: We have 128 of these cases. Calling a 400W power supply "inadequate" is hardly fair. This is more than we need for most of our machines which are number crunchers, not running a dozen hard drives or multiple gamer-grade video cards. We would rather have a smaller efficient power supply than pay for a giant one we don't need cranking out heat.

Supermicro cases seem to be built to a metric standard and therefore don't fit quite perfectly into industry-standard racks, which are actually made to an inch standard and were only "kludged" into metric.

These 2U cases fit fairly well, but the SuperMicro 4Ucases end up taking "4U and one extra hole" if you don't want them grinding the finish off each other or getting hopelessly stuck in the rack. This is the case in our newest Middle-Atlantic racks or our old DEC pdp11/70 Racks (one on each end of spectrum, you see). If we buy enclosures from CalPC, Antec or several other manufactures, they all fit fine in all racks.

1 out of 5 eggsA Headache.

Pros: The drive bays are nice, with slide out bays available for easy mounting for a RAID.

The rail, ball-bearing racks are awesome, once you find their install guides online.

Cons: DO NOT BUY THIS! First off, the power supply is a bit ridiculous. Everything about it screams imperfection. The watts are ridiculously low at only 400W, and for a server, there is a need for more power than that. I had to buy a separate power supply, and thought it's my fault for not knowing my motherboard's needs, it's a typical wattage for a server motherboard. I have to find and purchase a 550+ watt power supply that meets the dimensions for this chassis. Wish me luck.

The system fans, though excellently mounted and constructed, have 6 inches to give on the cords, thus making it nearly impossible to plug in. I have to buy extensions for them.

Though the main 24-pin barely reaches, the other two power supply cords are also about 6 inches long, and therefore 4-5 inches too short. I have to buy extensions for these as well.

Their Engineer/QA either never had previously installed a motherboard or took the day off.

Other Thoughts: If I wasn't so stubborn with returning this pain of a package, I would just have upgraded to an Intel chassis.
