This review is from: NORCO RPC-240 Black 2U Rackmount Server Case 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: This case can support up to five drives which is nice. It holds computer parts. Good responsive support.
Cons: The layout of the case is not my favorite. The screws are soft and very small. Thanks to Mike at Norco for sending me new screws free. They don't have replacement screws for the handles so be careful. Front panel blocks air flow. I also had a hard time getting it into my rack. I had to mod the rails so after buying two sets to get it to slide all the way in. According to norco it is the standard size. I have three Dell servers, asus server, Linksys switch, promise DAS and two APC batter backups that didn't have any issues, but who's counting. I think the handles are causing the problem with the width.
Other Thoughts: I ran this for a while with the fans blowing air out the front instead of blowing air in. That's the only way I could keep it cool. After the fans failed for the second time, I took the whole front face off and left it off because it blocks so much air no matter how you point the fans. It may have been causing premature fan failure. I think I'll find a better solution in the future. Again I would like to mention that Norco was quick to respond and send me new screws. This was very helpful.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: All I can say is that It's been running since 7/20 2011 24/7 with no issues. I installed two 4GB sticks of ram, two 1.5 Hitachi Deskstar drives, Xeon E31220 and Windows 7. .
It runs an intranet page, Vipre Business server, GFI Events Manager. Only reboot it when Windows requires it for updates.
