Pros -16 Hot swap bays with LED indicators -Low cost for server gear -Super powered fans
Cons -Do not remove plastic film -Motherboard support (not enough holes and supports) -None Hot-swap HDD placement -Cable management -Fan bracket placement
Summary This was purchased for a friend who wanted to build a home server in his closet. It will have to go there as the fans are loud and turbo charged. Whoever designed this case obviously did not care about cable management because this thing is a nightmare. The fan mount gets in the way of all the cables and even prevents some from being attached. Had to remove one of the fans just to get a S-ata cable plugged in. The none hot-swap HDD sits right under the PSU so only a PSU with a rear fan can be used without blocking air flow. We used a 2.5 HDD instead to keep that area clear. Whatever you do, do not remove the plastic film that surrounds the case. It's hard to remove and leaves the case all sticky. Just cut holes around it to keep it functional. Used a m-atx board for this and found out there was not enough holes drilled to cover off all the screw holes. I had to put my thumb underneath the board when putting connectors on. Once you get the thing built though and never want to touch it again, the case is very functional. The hot-swap bays slide in and out very easily. Each bay has its own LED indicator. Using 4-6 screws to mount a HDD in each bracket. The brackets are pretty sturdy. Not bad. Not great!
