    Chenbro ES34069 Mini Home Server Case

    http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_1201.html

    Has anyone on here used this case ? Am thinking of it to replace a Sugo SG03 for my home server setup. Quite pricey though but holds 4 3.5 + 1 2.5 drive.

    yeah I thought that too.

    I tried to justify it to myself as:
    currently have Lian Li I am using, could sell for £40 + 2 * bay covers for £10
    bought a Sugo SG03-B to replace it and could sell that for £50
    have a Corsair 520w PSU in there I could sell for £50 so £120.
    So by that logic only costs £50 !!

    What did you go for in the end ?

    went for a shuttle k45 with a celeron e1200, 2gb ram. already have some esata enclosures so i can get past the 2 drive limit pretty easily.

    basically spent £115 on a "just add harddrives to taste" setup, which i think is rather good
