Re: [PLUG] Computer case

What I like from this case is that it really looks professional. That's definitely something you can put in a small/medium company. I might give it a shot for another setup that has an atom cpu and 4 HD in a RAID5.

Can you fit an additionnal PCI network card in it ?

I wouldn't trust the user comments 100%, The reason people are most
likely having issues with the supply is that it's an open DIN supply,
very easy if you loose a screw for it to get wedged between
components. I know of three others and then myself who all have this
case and have nothing but good things to say about it. I'm using
similar hardware to what you are using (Atom 330). This might not be
the solution for you, but good luck in your search.

Nice idea indeed. But:

1. Come with a power supply. Not something I want.
2. user comments....


I've never tried hot swapping sata drives used in a linux soft raid. Might
be an interesting experience though :)

Check out Mini-box, unless you are looking for a 19" rack mount which
do not tend to carry:

I remember looking at those a while back. I really like the M300 with the
LCD display. Any idea how to control that from linux ?


Also check out Travla (carried by multiple resellers), which does offer
rack mount enclosures although they tend to be a bit above your stated

Nice too. From what I see, I will need to bring back my 2 3.5" and get 2
2.5" instead. Oh well....
