    from completed build NAS Beast/Personal Server

    Had such great potential, but it definitely missed the mark in a few areas. Overall it's built with very high quality materials that feel very sturdy, build quality is immaculate. Unfortunately there are a few big flaws. For one, I can't believe that they didn't make the case 1/2 of an inch thicker in order to accommodate for low profile RAID cards. I can't use the 3rd drive slot in this case because my raid card BARELY goes into that 3rd drive bay which makes it unusable. I'm using a standard low profile RAID card, and if the case was literally 1/2 of an inch wider, there would be enough room for the low profile card and the 3rd drive slot. There's basically 0 room for cable management, although this is kind of forgiven since I realize how they tried to make this case as absolutely tiny as possible while still fitting 8 drives. It just makes for an interesting experience, especially when you have 8+ sata cables plus all your power and fan and front panel and etc running through this absolutely tiny chassis. When loading this thing up with all 8 (or 7) 3.5" HDDs, even with the 2 fans blowing directly on them, the drives get hot. Like really hot. A couple of the HDDs in mine reach over 60 C. Had they spaced out the drives just a bit more by adding a bit more height to the case allowing for more airflow between the drives, I think it would have been a lot better.

    Overall, this is an amazing case if you want the absolute smallest thing you can get that will hold 8 (or 7+PCIe Card) 3.5" HDDs plus 4 SSDs. I would have given this a higher rating if it weren't for the $150 price tag, although I understand that it's more of a niche product, I would really expect a lot of those little quirks to be worked out on such a high price SFF case. Regardless, it's still a great case, and if it's what you're looking for, you won't find anything else on the market like it, so yeah.

    To sum up my thoughts this $200 case reminds me of $50 case...and not the good ones...This case can work for what it's intended for, but it definitely does not do it well. For starters once you add the PSU and SSD cage you have what feels like 1.5in between the HDD cage and those which when you're plugging into power cables to both is a very tight fit. In fact I'd describe everything about cable management is tight. So tight that I didn't even have to zip tie or velcro my cables for cable management because the tightness of the case kept everything in place (for better or worse). Speaking of cable management there is 0 pre-configured cable management opportunities in this case. Without the HDD cage this is literally a metal cube and nothing else. Ok it does have some nice magnetized fan filters, but you're basically buying a glorified HDD cage that happens to support a ITX mobo as an after thought. If they would have just made it an 1-2 inches deeper, provided some cable management opportunities, and higher quality parts (full interior paint) then i'd say its worth $200, but as it is this case should really be worth $50. Sadly there's not a lot of options for SFF NAS cases and I really think its an under served niche market. If you have the space and $100 more dollars I'd consider Silverstone's CS381 which is a mATX NAS case with 8 hot swap that looks like its designed much better.
