3 out of 5 eggsTook a chance ... and lost

Pros: It is inexpensive and has great reviews

Cons: The standoffs are too short for the mother board I bought - another reviewer posted the solution and I can move on with the build

Other Thoughts: No documentation included ?

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case for the money, would buy again!

Pros: 3U, supports standard ATX PSU, Micro ATX MOBO and full height cards.
I really like the 5.25" slots, they allow for front Hot Swap bays, though behind them might be tight with the PSU.

Cons: Tight fit with 3.5" drives, can fit 2-3 comfortably, but not idle for air flow given that two of the drives will block the 120mm fan, though there's a 80mm fan next to it.

Though this isn't a biggy, it support a ATX PSU, the bracket at the front pre-installed won't hold one on place and you'll have to remove it to fit one. No biggy in the grand scheme but would be nice for added support.

Other Thoughts: I really like the 5.25" slots, they allow for front Hot Swap bays, though behind them might be tight with the PSU. I would go with this configuration unless you plan on using 2,5" drives as there is limited space in the case for the drives.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the quality, fit of my components, and

Pros: Really love iStarUSA products. This is my second case from them, my first was a 2U model that looks very similar to this one. I wanted a 3U one because I got tired of trying to find low-profile graphics cards for my 2U one - yet loved the case I had and how well it was constructed. This 3U fits my needs well. If you are shopping for a data center and doing custom builds, these will work well. For my home use, the SFF of this works perfectly. It is just slightly longer in depth than the 2U one.

Like any micro atx case, things will fit snugly. I like the ability to connect up so many fans if needed. I went with 2x 60mm ones for my needs and that provides ample cooling. I'm replacing a Silverstone htpc case that had 2 120mm fans (was apprehensive at first, but the design of this case facilitates air movement). My PS vents towards the bottom (there is an air gap for me so it in turn vents out the back through the holes based on how I pull air in).

Cons: The blue LED on the front is very bright! Definitely lets you know its got power ;)

Only thing I wish I could find in a case of this style (or the 2U variant) is front accessible 3.5 slots so you could use trays or in general, have more flexible mounting options. In mine I ended up filling the available external slots with a 5.25 bluray, ICY DOCK 6 bay 2.5 enclosure, and a media reader in the 3.5 slot. So even though I can fit everything nicely now, it would be better IMO to have more front-facing areas for mounting stuff (same for my 2U enclosure - I prefer externally accessible slots - you usually see these in ATX or EATX-based rack mount enclosures only though). Not enough to take away any eggs... I know what I was buying based on research and pictures here.

Other Thoughts: Looks great in my living room lol :) you don't need a server room to appreciate a good rack case and the higher degree of construction you get ;)

Be sure to pay attention to the bag of parts you get in the box!!!!! I mounted my motherboard in (just like my iStarUSA 2U) and noticed things didn't look right - I then noticed in the bag there are "risers" I had to use to elevate my motherboard so it would be the right height. Struggled with this for a long time, even went to open up my 2U case since it was similar. The 2U one didn't need those risers, the 3U one does and it wasn't till after taking things apart for the second time (two different motherboards) I thought, hey... where is that bag of extra stuff I got with this thing.... duh, didn't feel so smart after that and when I used the risers, my MB fit beautifully.... maybe I can save someone else the frustration if they read this....

5 out of 5 eggsGood rackmount case for custom server build

Pros: Uses standard power supply. Room for extra fans. Plenty of room for hard drive storage. 3U build allows for aftermarket CPU cooler and/or video card.

Cons: The front fan mount bracket was missing out of the box. Also, some of the screws that hold the rackmount brackets on the left side were loose and damaged. Tightening them stripped the threads. The threads were fixed by chasing them with 8-32 and using new screws. I called iStarUSA tech support and they sent me a fan mount bracket and I had it in a few days.

Other Thoughts: This is not the first iStarUSA case that I have bought and it will not be the last. I think the problems that I had were a fluke, since my previous cases never had any of these problems. I expect things to break, but a company that supports their products deserves my business. I appreciate the prompt support. I didn't take any eggs away due to the support and how easy the fix was.
