4u Rackmount Cases and Power Supplies... which do you use?
#994870 - 26/06/12 05:41 PM
I'm looking to build a music PC from scratch. Components I'm in the
midst of researching... just need some recommendations on a case and power supply- budget
£100ish for the case, and however much it's going to cost for the power supply - 650
Obviously there are loads of choices for these - but as it's a music PC,
quiet fans would be nice. I'm thinking 4u rackmount as I've got 4 units left in my rack -
and it'll save a bit of floorspace.

I'm using a generic 4u case at the moment, one thing to watch out for is cpu cooler size.
If you're planning something that will need significant cpu cooling be aware the largest
coolers won't fit. On my case the limit is a height measurement of about 150mm.
I ended up using a thermolab trinity on my i5 2500k @ 4.7Ghz, it works well but can be
heard if the machine is working hard.
