iStarUSA D-213-MATX Black Metal/ Aluminum 2U Rackmount microATX Server Chassis 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays
  • Industrial Chassis with 15" in Depth
  • Supports Front Access USB2.0 x2
  • Power and HDD LED
  • Power and Reset Switch
  • Support ATX PS2 Power Supply
  • Support 4 x Low Profile Add-on Cards
  • $69.99
  • $6.99 Shipping (restrictions apply)

Pros:

It's cheap and works in my rack. The 2u profile is able to house a standard power supply, plus many low profile components. The small footprint doesn't overcrowed. The system is light enough to mount on a relay rack, or by it's ears in a normal rack. I'll probably purchase another one to replace a 4U box.

Cons:

As others have mentioned, I'd suggest changing the two front fans. The current stock ones produce a large amount of noise. For home users this gets annoying quickly. I'd suggest purchasing a low dBA / high CFM fan if you're NOT placing this in a data center.

Other Thoughts:

As mentioned use a power supply with a rear fan. A Scythe "Big Shuriken" heat sink will fit in the case. The stock AMD heat sink wasn't cutting it.. I created a air tube from plastic and use one front fan to blow air in the direction of the CPU. Otherwise it'll get a bit warm in the case.
