RPC-230 Rackmount Server Chassis

This case is a 2RU high x 387mm deep rackmount case. It was the only one of three rack mount cases under 390mm deep that I could find available in Australia. It can easily accommodate 2 x 3.5 drives, although filling all drive bays can be quite tight and requires goof cable management. individual drive trays are held by two screws and are quite easy to release. They only have holes for 3.5 drives, and then only for the bottom ones and not for the side mounts. There are no anti-vibration mounts but this is not an issue. The case fans are very loud and I swapped them out for Noctuas. It also only has USB2 ports on the front of the case and no USB3 ports. It doesn't come with a manual, but is pretty easy to figure out. To replace the fans or install the motherboard the whole hard drive shelf has to be removed. This also involves removing the rack mount ears so that the screws for the shelf can be accessed. The coating to the outside of the case does chip and scratch easily, and you need to be careful with tightening the screws as they are quite soft. The screws are also quite small as well, so you need to be careful not to lose them. It doesn't come with a manual, but is pretty easy to figure out. One thing to be aware of is that the case can only accommodate a PSU which has a front-to-back airflow path (ie air is draw from the front of the PSU and exhausted out the back). The vast majority of all PSUs now have a perpendicular airflow path (ie air is draw in from the top or bottom of the PSU and exhausted out of the back). The case has no air intake for the PSU on the bottom or top, as most server cases are designed for front to back airflow. This severely limits PSU choice two one model. Rackmount rails are available for the case but at 20 or 26 inches in length, they kind of defeat the purpose of a short depth case. Overall it achieves the aims of being a short depth rackmount case. Replace the fans and its perfect for a small home server build.
