Pros: 8 2.5" drives in a 1U! Fans are quieter than most, but hey its a server, who cares?
Cons: Only 2 USB connections, couldn't they squeeze in at least 4? The mobo has lots of USB headers that can't be used.
The air shroud for the CPU steals all the air from the ram modules. Could use one or two more of the small fans to cover the rest of the chassis including the PCI-E slot.
For a chassis that offers 8 hot swap bays, and a socket 2011.. 330W is REALLY LOW. I had to count watts to make sure all 8 drives and the 6-core xenon wouldn't overload it.
Other Thoughts: Given the popularity of SSDs now, and their importance used to accelerate SAN and NAS servers. I would love to see more of these 2.5" bay systems. One with preferably a redundant PS and more cooling. A little bit of redesign and they should be able to fit a second half-height slot, that could be very useful as well.
I'm having to RMA this one. It arrived with defective USB ports.. UGH.. I can't seem to get an order without defective equipment anymore. Cmon guys!
