mITX NAS case? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
It's not out yet, but the Lian Li PC-Q25 might be worth waiting for. It's basically a Q08 sans 5.25" bay and with the addition of more and hotswappable hard drives. Has a cleaner look as well.

+1 for the PC-Q25. I actually just got wind of this case on another mITX server thread on OC.net today. It looks like a beautiful case, I was planning on going with the PC-Q08 but was a bit apprehensive about the size and the less than monolithic glowing mesh front end. But this thing is a tad bit smaller overall, trades the not-really-necessary 5.25" bay for a gorgeous solid front end, and completely revamps the HDD bay setup, which was always a chief complaint among people that loaded up the case but still swapped drives out from time to time. The hotswappable bays, while yes they could of taken it a step further with port multipliers, are still very intelligently setup and save you a few SATA power plugs, something that really comes in handy when your trying to go with a low power/high efficiency PSU like FSP's AURUM 80+GOLD 400W PSU. Or what I would like to do and do away with the full ATX PSU altogether and run something like a 150-190W picoPSU with enough molex/SATA connecters/expanders to handle 7/8 HDDs? x3-4 molex +1-3 SATA?
