ARK IPC-2U2055 Black 1.2mm SGCC 2U Rackmount Server Chassis 2 External 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fits up to ATX mother board
4 x 80mm fans /w grills (and molex to 4pin distributor)
Uses ATX power supply

Cons: To fit the ATX motherboard I was using I had to switch the fans to the other side of the central fan spire. I also learned the hard way that the best way to swap the fans is to remove the central spire and then install/uninstall the fans (there are sharp edges).

A similar method of installation should be used for mounting the ATX power supply.

Cables will run through one of the hard drive bays lowering the maximum amount of hard drives that can be installed in this system by one or two drives. You may be able to regain the HDDs by removing the 5.25 drive tray.

Other Thoughts: This case works very well for my use case but does have draw backs.

Intel Xeon E3-1270 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 69W BX80637E31270V2 Server Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good balance of features and price. Just a note that this processor does not have an integrated GPU.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wanted the Xeon E3-1275 V2 because I wanted to take advantage of OpenCL computing on the integrated GPU but during my research discovered that the OpenCL drivers for Intel's integrated GPUs only work on Windows and I am using this processor in a headless Linux system.

The integrated GPUs from Intel have display drivers for Linux.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy rack server rack to construct with nice and clear labeling.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am using this server to build a personal computer cluster and I wanted more space to place stickers.
