I’m very pleased with your case. It’s the second one i get from you. It’s well built and I love the horizontal bar reinforcing the structure. It was a bit tough to get the pci cards in - too tight at the end of the bracket, but I managed. The sledges are a weird, but I hope I don’t have to swap drives too often. I also wish I could also mount the power supply horizontally and that you would sell a chassis top with vents. I love the front screen and the quality of the finishing, the paint job is great and the shipping was fast and well packed..
This case is probably the best you can get for a rackmounted audio build without getting a custom case; the depth fits a rolling audio rack case and overall this required minimal modification compared to most rack cases. I had to cut out some slots and drill some holes for extra fans as these cases generally have poor airflow, which is to be expected. A build in a case with so much already in it requires some pretty good planning, noting that the maximum GPU length is about 240mm is quite important; luckily I had planned to purchase all my innards only after receiving the case and taking appropriate measurements (The pictures are with a stand-in GPU, which is too long, and so the leftmost hotswap module is temporarily removed to accomodate its length). Additionally, I replaced all the fans in this case with either lower-profile or quieter fans, because noise is a significant consideration for a studio PC. The included horizontal bracket (for PCIe stabilization and sidewall strength) can act as a cable management channel, as I have used it. The only negative points I have to make is the poor quality of hotswap bays; each tray is primarily pretty flimsy plastic and tin, which will not support heavier HDDs for long, I would expect slightly better quality here for the cost. One other thing is that the standard profile fan on the rightmost hotswap module may interfere with the Motherboard ATX power cable and connector, I replaced it with a lower profile fan accordingly.
the case overall is ok but what i noticed is that holds more heat the the tower case i use to have and the HDD led on that case do noting, once in a while i see them flickering
This is a great case to build in with standard parts. The 8 Hot swap bays are nice for home use and the short depth of this case was perfect for my home cinema cupboards. I would recommend this case to anyone looking to build a home server
Pros: Nice design and colors. Handles Fits ATX powersupplies LCD temperature 8 hotswaps bays!!! Cons: HDD hotswap bays won't last longue if I want to change the hdd every month, they don't look strong but who changes them every month ? Same for the power button, sometimes it stays pushed and don't come back. => Those "problems" are ok because once it's settle, we never touch them again but I took out one star for that, it doesn't mean I wouldn't buy from you again, I pretty sur do.
