Features    [ Edit | History ]

What's new?

The Array R2 is a slightly updated version of the Array Mini ITX NAS case. The new features/upgrades are;
  • Two expansion slots instead of one, enabling support for Mini DTX M/B
  • Improved HDD cage
  • Improved front fan module

Exclusive Storage!

The Array R2 Mini ITX NAS case is setting new standards for the Home Server/DIY NAS market. With it's whopping six(!) hard drive bays in a very small enclosure, hardly bigger than your average bread toaster, it's certainly creating a new niche.

Built in high quality aluminium straight through with a nice touch for details, the Array R2 case provides a very exclusive way to store all your important data. The hard drive cage with room for six 3,5-inch HDD and one SSD, is removable and fitted with silicone anti-vibration grommets to minimise noise from the hard drives. In the front our award winning Silent Series 140mm is fitted, together with a washable filter. It takes in air from the side ventilation holes in the front panel. This ensures an efficient, but yet silent, cooling over the hard drives.
Furthermore, there is a SFX 300W PSU included, rated at more than 80% efficiency, with a silent temperature controlled fan. We have decided to include this PSU in the package, since it's fairly hard to find quality SFX PSU's in the market that is also silent, and not too expensive.

You can fit a Mini ITX or a Mini DTX motherboard into the case and there's also room for two expansion cards, for example a RAID card which you'd typically want to get the most out of your six hard drives. All necessary components and software naturally needs to be purchased separately, but we can recommend to use specialised NAS/Home Server software such as FreeNAS or Windows Home Server. Please note that there is no room for a 5,25-inch drive, we deliberately left this out since you don't generally use that in a NAS/Home Server environment, and it saved us a lot of space which we could use for fitting hard drives instead.

Pros
Size, HDD Capacity, Looks, Build Quality
Cons
None
Summary
I built a NAS box out of this a year ago, was extremely easy to build and setup. It looks fantastic and the fit and finish is second to none.

Pros
Small, sleek, Quality fan, holds 6 hdds + SSd
Cons
Expensive, annoying to dissasemble
Summary
This is the perfect case for a home server or media box. It is one of the few mitx cases that will hold 6 HDDs plus an SSD. It looks great sitting out on a tv/entertainment stand and most people actually ask me "what kind of audio receiver is that?"

I ordered a Noctua 140mm fan to replace the stock one, but it turns out the stock one is high quality and very quiet. I had to use a small washer as a shim under the hard drive cage so that the cage wouldn't hit my raid card.

Pros
Stylish, minimalist, tons of drive bays
Cons
Not easy to change air filter
Summary
Two things attracted me to this case - it's minimalist styling and large drive count (in a small case). Nothing else detracted from those pros.
I fit an Intel DH61DL mITX board inside with a G530 on board and two drives (to start). The included PSU, drive cage, and filter fit well and fasten securely. Rubber mounts for each drive as well as on the drive cage are appreciated. Large, quiet, well supplied fan intakes on the sides at the front. Front panel consists only of a backlit power button. Brushed black aluminum looks great. No sharp edges, screw holes consistent, front panel and fan leads reach anywhere in the case.
Only minus (and a small one) is that almost complete disassembly of the case is required to clean the air filter. But since this is a WHS box for relatives, and the box is out of the way, that won't have to happen often, and it'll be by me.
I'm getting two more.

Pros
- Small Form Factor
- Beautiful Finish
- 6 - 3.5 Bays + 1 - 2.5 "Bay"
Cons
- Price
- Fasteners
- HDD Cage & Power Supply Location
Summary
I bought this case for my home NAS server. The main selling point was the amount of drives it could hold. It can hold 6 - 3.5 HDD in the cage, and you can mount a 2.5 on the bottom of the cage (SSD).

First off, the quality is excellent. Awesome brushed black aluminum outside. All the fasteners are countersunk so nothing protrudes.

Unfortunatly the trade off for all those HDD's in there is space. There isn't much left for anything. The cage itself is difficult to get in with the PS attached. It can be done, but it's a bastard.

Due to the location of the cage & the PS the drives power & sata cables on 2 of the drives will but up against the PS. Like I said, it's tight.

The cooling could be better, but with that many drives what can you do. They all operate well within the heat spec for the drives. The front fan is audiable in a quiet room, so if you have this out in your living room you might hear it.

I'll be swapping out the Fan for one of my own, I'm, guessing that will eliminate the noise.

Overall, this is a must have if you want alot of drives in your enclosure.
