Question

Posted

Hey Guys,

I'm planning on building a new server soon with approx 15 Hard Drives, I'm looking for a fairly decent case with 9 x 5.25 slots which I can fill with these suckers: [url="http://www.scan.co.uk/products/supermicro-black-cse-m35t1-5-bay-sata-hot-swap-rack-fits-into-3x525-bays?utm_source=google+shopping&utm_medium=google+shopping"]CSE-M35T-1B[/url]

Does anyone have any recommendations for cases I should buy?

Additionally any personal recommendations for RAID Cards / Motherboards?

Thanks Guys,

Chris

I thought it would look like a mess, but that's actually pretty cool. :D Nicely done.

It looked much better after I moved to the Lian Li PC-343B as that had tons more room. Also I used three cable ties on each bundle of SATA cables (3 bundles, each with 5 cables) [url="http://i.imgur.com/MEvhE.jpg"]http://i.imgur.com/MEvhE.jpg[/url]

That is before the 24GB RAM upgrade ([url="http://i.imgur.com/KqtM8.jpg"]Picture After[/url]) but after I put in the Gigabyte UD5 and changed cases to the Lian-Li PC-343B. I don't have any pictures currently of the newest setup where I changed RAID cards and fitted the expander but I'm intending to change some of the backplanes I'm using in the summer when I can get my hands on the 4TB Hitachi's and I'll be fully documenting it at that time with pictures. I'll probably post a build log on here like I did for my water cooling build.
