ARK ITX/CS-CI04 Black Server Case Internal 300W 1 External 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small NAS/HTPC case with 2 hot swap bays, one internal bay, and an optical drive bay.

Cons: The fan on the front is a facade - literally a false front. After installing the drives, there is only a 1 sq. in. sized opening for air flow from the front.

The description says there is ample room for CPU coolers - the is completely untrue, there is about 2" of clearance between the board and the hot swap bays.

The front door is designed with the closure tab oriented backwards so that if you try to open the door by putting your fingers on the indented handle, you will not be able to open the door. The door has to be opened by grabbing any place other than the handle.

Other Thoughts: I removed the fan from the front door.

I had to return a CPU cooler that wouldn't fit, and ordered a Silverstone NT-01E in hopes that it will fit.

The stock cooler from Intel fits (barely) in this case, but I don't believe it will be efficient enough given the air flow issues of the case.
