SUPERMICRO CSE-512L-260B Black 1U Rackmount 14
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Good quality and price, but needs additional accessories 06/02/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO CSE-512L-260B Black 1U Rackmount 14" Mini Server Case Thermal control 260W AC power supply with PFC

Pros: - An inexpensive 1U case

- Sturdy and well built.

- Comes with a 260w power supply.

Cons: - Needed a couple extra accessorizes that drove othe verall price up:

Railing system - $35

Molex HDD Power adaptor - $2

- Limited compatible motherboards for the i/o sheilds provided.

Other Thoughts: Though it appears possible in the owners manual, I was not able to re-position the chassis mounting ears from the front of the chassis to the middle (only 1 screw hole is present, when 3 are needed). This prevented mid-mounting the Chassis onto a Telco rack.

I did not trust front mounting, and with the absence of rear mounting holes, I decided to purchase the additional rail kit.

I was able to completely remove the i/o shield provided, and this allowed me to use a variety of motherboards (originally I used an Asus i7 board), but ultimately I decided to stick with a compatible Xeon motherboard for the i/o shield provided.

All in all, it was still a good deal and I've continued using this chassis for my other render nodes.
