This review is from: NORCO RPC-4224 4U Rackmount Server Case with 24 Hot-Swappable SATA/SAS Drive Bays
Pros: Can't beat the storage potential. Rack mountable. Price.
Cons: This is my second Norco case, first being 4220. Both come with "broken" parts.
The first had one of it's backplanes not working. This one, so far as I can tell, has a broken front handle bar, the one that holds the USB ports. The inner plastic thread is broken and the handle is held by just one screw. Hope that Norco can address this as I do not feel like RMAing the entire case.
Otherwise, like the last case, plenty of sharp corners, but you do not get this case to go into it frequently.
Pros: Easy BIOS. Stable. Nice layout.
Cons: About 4 months into light use, with never overcloking and being kept in a cool room, HDMI output started failing. Images are washed out and sound is dead. Tried everything. Narrowed it down to the boards HDMI port. Did not expect it to fail so quickly. So much for this board. Time to RMA. Painful.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lot of connectors and great reputation.
Cons: Smells really bad when burns.
Other Thoughts: I've had this PSU for about two years as a backup and have never really needed it till a day ago when I decided to put together a new system. The PSU has been running for a little less than 12 hours when suddenly the system completely shut down and there was a puff of smoke coming from the PSU. I hope that it is under warranty and that no other part of the system fried as a result of this "wonderful" unit. Gave it one egg for the reputation and plethora of connectors.READ FULL REVIEW
