Best Case? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to build my own WHS but I cannot find a good case for it. I am looking for a case similar in size to the HP Media Smart Server. I also want the case to have externally accessible drive slots.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?

  • This looks like an awsome case.  Where does the PSU go?  Does it come with one or do you have to purchase it seperately?

    Does anyone have this case, I would love to see a picture of a buildout with it, just to see how everything fits.  How big of a CPU cooler can you fit into the case?

  • Roger, if you will read the manual (available from the site linked above) I think you'll find an answer for your question.

    Hi Roger,

    I believe Terry (MVP Mod, wegotserved.co.uk maintainer) is going to post a review of the case soon (tm).

  • http://www.crystalfontz.com/forum/showthread.php?p=24453#post24453 is what I set up.  Might give you a few ideas.  The case and cage I both got at Newegg.  A real cheap case, but great quality.
