Hello all. Just finished setting up my ZFS nas server it's ALIVE muhahaha. Anyway now i am on the lookout for a good air flow rack monted PC case. I will basicaly transfere everything from my main rig.
The case components:
CPU: I5 760 2.8GHz @ 4.1Ghz Mobo: ASUS p7p55d deluxe RAM: 16GB of ddr3 ram GPU: KFA2 GTX 980ti HOF @ 1500mhz Storage: none... or just one SSD PSU: CM V700
I know the CPU belongs to a freging museum... i am holding of for Kaby Lake because of thunderbold 3. But for now i will have to live with it.
Keep in mind that i don't need any drive bays. The front should be populated with fans. Other than that thank you for posting.
Outside of some enterprise equipment I don't know if you can get a 4u case with zero drive bays. Following is a link to a rosewill case that has 3 external bays that are optional(and I am sure a quick mod can make those bays into a fan mount though)
Sorry guys i was away life happened. I bought the x-case 4000. It actually arrived already. I guess i can make a mini review. - X-Case is already a good pick because they are in UK so the shipment is not through the roof for us EU guys. - The build quality is solid almost no flex and there is no plastic. Everything is out of metal. - Like they advertised no HDD bays it's a clear bow through the whole case with fresh air. But there is a bracket installed where you can put up to 6 SSD. - Speaking of air there is only one 120mm Fan. Additional 1x120 mm on the front and 2x60 mm mounting options on the rear - A standard ATX Motherboard will fit in with no problems - The GPU witch is a freaking giant Galax/KFA2 GTX 980 ti HOF fits too. A flat 6,8 pin power cable is required thou
I will report on the thermals when i get noctua fans only then i will know if it's generating enough pressure to pull heat out of the case fast enough.
