Where can I find a case like this? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
How about a case that measures 10.24" x 5.51" x 10.24", can hole an ITX motherboard, four 3.5" hot swap drives and a 2.5" boot drive plus even a slot for a slim optical drives and one expansion slot?

CHENBRO ES34169-BK-120

CHENBRO ES34069-BK-180

Difference is one has 120W PSU and one has 180W PSU. Enough for a bunch of drives and an Atom or Zacate. Oh yeah, the 180W version comes with EIDE adapter (useless) and mounting bracket (important) for the slim optical drive, plus it uses an external power brick.

AFAIK neither of them includes the slot riser card for the low profile slot. If your ITX motherboard has a PCI slot you need this part. If your motherboard has a PCIe x16 slot (like the Zacate with x4 electrical) this part might be the right one (I ordered one to try for mine).

Note that the CPU heatsink needs to be VERY low profile (probably 1U size) to fit.

^perfect. That is what I need. At that size I could put 4 of them together, and it would still be smaller then my setup now. Now to find that ITX, with a X16 pci-e. that a RAID card can go in.

Thank you.

^My concern stems from the 'Graphics' only PCI-E x16 slots of the old days. I think that is long gone.

Those boards have physical PCIe x16 slots that are electrically x4 lanes. I purchased the Sapphire Pure Fusion for my own CHENBRO ES34169-BK-120 because it has five SATA ports (I just won't have a port for the optical drive) plus one eSATA. I did order the PCIe x16 riser. Not sure it is the right size/angle, but at that price I took a chance just to check it out. I'm just going to be running JBOD so no need for RAID.

You've clearly never owned a Lian Li case...
