NORCO RPC-2212 Black 2U Rackmount Server Case with 12 Hot-Swappable SATA/SAS Drive Bays
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -12 hot swap bays
Plenty of room in the back section for your motherboard, -CPU, add in cards, and power supply
-Fans are reasonably quiet, yet move quite a bit of air
-Fans all wired together and have only 1 plug
-Sturdy construction
-I ordered it the day before a price hike
-LEDs bright enough to see, but not so bright that they illuminate the whole room

Cons: -Not too much room between the backplanes and fans for routing of cables. Everything fits, but it's a bit tight
-Wires to the fans seem a bit thin

Other Thoughts: If you're going to use this case with regular SATA connections from your motherboard/add in card, be sure to get a REVERSE SAS/SATA breakout cable. Looks just like a regular breakout cable, but is wired differently. A regular breakout cable will not work. Norco sells just the product you need, S-CFF8087-4S. Newegg was nice enough to take back the cables I incorrectly ordered, but it cost me return shipping, shipping for the right cables, and at least a week. Learn from my mistake!

I currently have 6 WD Red drives installed. I got this case with the future in mind - I can expand with 6 more disks when it gets full.

SeaSonic SS-400L2U 400W Single 2U Server Power Supply - 80PLUS Gold
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Very efficient
-Fit perfectly in my Norco 2212 case
-Plenty of connectors (see other thoughts)
-It's Seasonic, so I know it'll last forever

Cons: Not really any

Other Thoughts: I looked and looked and looked for the connector count before purchasing this, and I could not find it anywhere. In case anybody else is interested, here it is:
1 24pin ATX connector
1 8pin EPS12V connector
1 4+4pin ATX12V/EPS12V connector
5 4pin molex HDD/ODD connectors
4 SATA connectors
1 4pin floppy connector
1 6pin PCI-E connector

Rosewill Green Series RG430-2 430W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS Certified, ATX12V v2.3 & EPS12V v2.91,Active PFC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Absolutely wonderful. Replaced a old clunker that blew its Current Inrush Limiter. This one weighs about 3 times as much, uses fat 16 and 18 gauge wire, instead so the skinny 20 gauge stuff, runs much quieter, and puts out cleaner power. Exhaust air is barely warm, due to the high efficiency. Got it for 30% off, with a free toolkit and free shipping. Can't beat that!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Powering a dual Xeon system:
T*an Tiger i7501R
2x I*tel Xeon 3.06GHz
4x K*ngston 512MB Registered ECC DDR400 DIMMs
A*I Radeon 7500 PCI VGA Card
and some old hard drive I found in my basement
