This review is from: iStarUSA D-118V2-ITX-30FX8 Black Metal / Aluminum 1U Rackmount Compact Server Case 300W 80Plus
Pros: Sturdy. Buttons work.
Cons: Had to flip the power supply over so the ATX power connector would reach. That required a little metal work on the back panel of the case.
No fans included. No ducting from chassis fan location to CPU heatsink. That is important, as there are not CPU heatsinks/fans which are low enough to fit.
The back panel EMI shield for ITX motherboards does not fit the case. I had to cut the top off the shield to make it fit. Not sure how it can claim to be an ITX compatible case when the backpanel opening is too small for an ITX shield.
Basically, this is a box where all the details are left to sort out. If you don't have to worry about cooling, then it should work for you. However, given that it has a 300W power supply, it is hard to conceive of a system that won't have some cooling concerns.
These 1U cases need a more complete solution. The room is so constrained, it is hard to find CPU coolers that will fit. As it is, I run the system without the cover on it. That is fine for a development system, but we won't be using this case again.
