My WHS1 Needs A New Case

Recommended Posts

I just changed out one of my hdds on my WHS and realized that the case is way over crowded. For 250 or less what server case would you recommend?

 

 

Thanks

Here is my two cents. If you have 5 or less drives, get the Lian Li Lancool PC-K7B, good dust filters, good cooling and great prices.

If you want a case that will hold, 6-10 or more with adapters, here are some good options from the Lian Li that are all under your budget. As I have one similar to these I can vouch for the quality of their cases as well as their cooling designs which is important in a server case. Things like dust filters adds to the experience and they are all very very quiet. I do not get a commission on Lian-Li but there is a reason why I have 8 of them. They are absolutely outstanding.

I currently have 6 drives in my WHS. So I would like to have a large case. I will check out your suggestion and post. TY

 

What size mobo are you running? And how many HDDs?

Like those suggestions - think its time to pull out my smoking Amex card....

 

OK just purchased the LIAN LI PC-A70F Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case and 2 of the 2tb EARS drives on sale today for $99 thanks for the help. I really need to hide my Credit Cards when I use this forum!

Awesome choice on the case. This is almost identical to mine and I love it. There is even room in 5.25 bay to add an adapter to add three more drives for a total of 13. Room to grow...

Lian Li, Lian Li! That's all I wanted to say. Well, that and the fact that I own 4 Lian Li cases and just love 'em. The way the HDDs can be inserted without tools, and the way I can pull my video card out for testing in another system without tools, is really nice. You get what you pay for. B)

Lian Li is not the only case manufacture that provide those features. But than again I only own one Lian Li case which is great although pricey:)
