Introducing the RM-1U122ITX, it is the second 1U model from Athena Power's new Mini-Server series. Designed to be compact in size, this 1U chassis can house two 2.5" HDDs (or one 3.5" HDD), a Mini-ITX motherboard, and three 40mm fans. One of the new features the 1UITX122 has incorporated is its new HOT-swapping feature, with the BP-2221 backplane built in it allows more flexibility to server builders who wish to have the mobility to swap out hard drives. With its ultra-compact design the 1UITX122 allows the 1U122ITXs to be daisy-chained and fitted on one single rack! For small businesses and office use, no other chassis is this compact and convenient.
What a little rock!
This review is from: Athena Power RM-1U122ITXH2122 Black 1.2mm Steel 1U Rackmount Server Case w/ 2-in-1 2.5" HDD Backplane Unit FlexATX 220W
Pros: Absolutely perfect for a simple, low-power, software-only based rackmount server. I used it with an ASRock E350M (newegg sku N82E16813157228) to just run a viewer keeping tabs on an offsite DVR, but just imagine coupling this little badboy with any one of many 1155 or G32 ITX mobo's and a souped-up CPU for running a multiple VM server for things like terminal services and enterprise management, where RAM and CPU are more important than storage capacity; it makes the mouth water.
Cons: NO drive options besides the single 3.5" external bay that is occupied from the factory by a 2x2.5" backplane. Like I said above, this case is for software workhorses, not data storage.
Other Thoughts: I can imagine some CPU/cooler combinations being too tall to fit inside of this case, so be sure to do your research.
