Pros:

Anti-vibration mounting for (10) internally-mounted 3.5" disk drives. The 10 drives are placed in special carriers with rubber shock-mounting grommets. These grommets dampen all vibrations, similar to how suspension bushings in cars work. Less vibration extends drive life.

Highly efficient cooling design for (10) internally-mounted 3.5" disk drives. The mounting tower for the 10 drives has a four (4) 120mm fans in a push/pull arrangement blowing outside air over the drives then drawing the air out through the side of the case, so that the air that cools the drives never reaches the motherboard or CPU. My average drive temps dropped from 50C to about 30C on average when I switched cases. Lower temps extend drive life.

Fantastic air flow over the motherboard and CPU. I run an 8-core AMD at full throttle on certain database operations, with all 8 cores pegged at 100%. CPU temp never rises over 60C with the OEM cooler at 75F ambient room temps.

Well-designed power distribution block for the cooling fans.

Cons:

Not so much acon as a suggestion. With a slight bit of re-engineering, this case could easily support 16 internal 3.5" drives. For database servers, these is no need for a 5.25" drive mount. I do not know of any well-designed cases that support 14 to 16 internal 3.25" disk drives.

Other Thoughts:

The case weighs 70lbs when fully loaded with 13 3.5" disk drives and one 5.25" DVD ROM, . The supplied wheels are absolutely necessary for moving the case. The case should be placed on a hard surface, and not on a carpet.

I bought two CoolerMaster HAF 932 cases for database servers prior to purchasing these cases. The Rosewill case outclasses the CoolerMaster case in many, many ways. The only thing I like better about the CoolerMaster is the way that the side panel opens -- it's sort of a hinge-type arrangement, much easier to deal with than the more common slide and lock arrangement.
