1 out of 5 eggs Should have done more research before buy this unit 07/06/2012

This review is from: iStarUSA D-213-MATX-25P3 Black Aluminum / Steel 2U Rackmount Compact Server Case 250W 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays

Pros: Very nice and study case. Good craftsmanship and design.

Cons: The unit came with a cheesy $10.00 Power Supply, has no power for SATA drives. The 24 pin and 4 pin power cables are to short. You will have to buy extension cables to reach the motherboard. The CPU fan is a 1/4" from the top lid which will cause the CPU to over heat. I monitored the CPU temp and it had reached 47C / 116F and was still climbing. My room temp. was 72F. The two fans in the front blow the heat from the hard drives on to the motherboard and CPU.

Other Thoughts: MODS: I reversed the front fans to blow out, I cut a hole in the top cover above the CPU and mounted a grille. The system ran at a steady 31C / 87F. I had to purchased extension cables $15.00, and a new power supply $45.00. So this case actually cost me $198.00 with shipping. Not worth it. I would have returned this unit for a refund, but I ran out of time to ship a different one because of my dead line I had to meet.
