This review is from: Athena Power RM-1U164A4 Black 1.0 mm Steel 1U Rackmount Server Case 400W with 80 PLUS 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: Decent quality build on the chassis, and comes with all the required screws and parts.
Cons: The motherboard standoff holes are non-standard. I have a 12" x 13" Xeon motherboard which is listed as supported on the description (ASUS Z9PE-D16/2L), but many of the holes don't line up, leaving parts of the motherboard unsupported and resting on misaligned standoffs. Also, the motherboard I/O shield size is non-standard which is not listed anywhere in the newegg description, and thus won't fit with the shield that comes with the motherboard. I e-mailed the manufacturer and they have their own shields available for a few specific motherboard models, but not for the one I needed. So now I'm stuck with a chassis that has misaligned motherboard screw holes, and no I/O shield.
Other Thoughts: It seems like a decent quality chassis, but just designed for very specific motherboard models and is not compatible with all motherboards. It'd be helpful if the specific list of compatible motherboards was listed on the description so customers are aware before purchasing.
