Pros: Fits up to ATX mother board
4 x 80mm fans /w grills (and molex to 4pin distributor)
Uses ATX power supply
Cons: To fit the ATX motherboard I was using I had to switch the fans to the other side of the central fan spire. I also learned the hard way that the best way to swap the fans is to remove the central spire and then install/uninstall the fans (there are sharp edges).
A similar method of installation should be used for mounting the ATX power supply.
Cables will run through one of the hard drive bays lowering the maximum amount of hard drives that can be installed in this system by one or two drives. You may be able to regain the HDDs by removing the 5.25 drive tray.
Other Thoughts: This case works very well for my use case but does have draw backs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good balance of features and price. Just a note that this processor does not have an integrated GPU.
Other Thoughts: I wanted the Xeon E3-1275 V2 because I wanted to take advantage of OpenCL computing on the integrated GPU but during my research discovered that the OpenCL drivers for Intel's integrated GPUs only work on Windows and I am using this processor in a headless Linux system.
The integrated GPUs from Intel have display drivers for Linux.
Pros: Easy rack server rack to construct with nice and clear labeling.
Other Thoughts: I am using this server to build a personal computer cluster and I wanted more space to place stickers.READ FULL REVIEW
