The problem you will face is that with a 2 U cases such as this is you have to use a riser for any PCI cards which limits the slots to 2 or 3 and you won't be able to use an AGP graphics card.

The best case so far I have come across that we put into our customers racks are

http://www.digitalconnection.com/pro...es/sr4u35x.htm


I have NO INVOLVEMENT IN THE COMPANY! so its not a sales pitch. They also have full blown HTPC's.


Just is a real quiet case that doesn't have doors. It works well

in the dark and fits into a rack real easy. Price is a little high but the quality and finish is top notch. The nice thing also is they have BLACK face dvd's and floppy drives which are hard to get in our area

The picture shown are 3U cases. There are 7 PCI slots and have enough height for all standard size cards (including AGP graphic card). If need to be I'll entertain the 4U.



John and Karnis

I already looked at the 4U and the desktop cases from Digital Connection. Specs are very good, a little pricy, but the most important thing is they only has 3 open bays. I need more open bays, 1-Toshiba combo drive, 2-SB Live drive, 3-Two mobile racks (removable Hard drives), and 4-An open bay for USB/Firewire front mount. As you see, I do lots of video editing and transfer, don't want to pull the sucker out every time I need to hook up something.


E. PUNK,

Dashing towers, but I am not looking at towers in this case (pun ;)).


Thanks for the replies! Anyone have suggestions please free to drop me a line.
