Cooler Master N400 NSE-400-KKN2 N-Series Mid Tower Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support, Multiple 240mm Radiator Support, and Ventilated Front Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Plenty of room for the build I was doing (mATX, 1 HDD, 1ODD)
Included fans are quiet and move a decent amount of air. Also lots of extra vents for more fans/airflow
Finish is pretty durable and does not attract fingerprints
Comes with a nifty little socket to easily install the mobo standoffs. Also, two of the standoffs have little protrusions on the top that allow you to align the mobo and keep it in place while screwing it in.
Tool-less gizmos for the HDDs and ODDs are easy to use and keep the drives secure
Front audio, USB2 & 3

Cons: Given the price point, none of these are deal breakers:
Sheet metal is a little flimsy
Not many cable management holes for routing wires behind the mobo
Expansion slot covers are not the standard ones - they come attached and can be permanently removed with a screwdriver
Not all drive bays have tool-less attachment devices

Other Thoughts: Easy to build in, quite a few nice features without too many extra bells and whistles, very affordable

NORCO RPC-2212 Black 2U Rackmount Server Case with 12 Hot-Swappable SATA/SAS Drive Bays
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned 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
  • neweggOwned 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
