Rosewill RSV-L4000 Rackmount Server Case Review

Rosewill RSV-L4000 Rackmount Server Case Review

Today we're looking at the RSV-L4000 that's based on the same platform as the $199 Rosewill RSV-L4411, but costs less than $100. Let's take a look.

Introduction

Just days ago, we looked at the $199 Rosewill RSV-L4411, one of four 4u rackmount cases offered by Rosewill. The RSV-L4411 is Rosewill's flagship model with 12 drive sleds, but the same base case design and construction is used throughout the entire RSV Series.

 

The entry-level rackmount cases from Rosewill are the two RSV-x4000 models, RSV-R4000, a short depth case, and RSV-L4000, the deep depth case that we are looking at today. The RSV-L4000 is nearly identical to the L4411 we just reviewed other than the three drive cages that Rosewill sells individually for $49.99 each.

 

The L4000 ships with drive sleds, but they are internal, non-hot swap type and three 5.25" bays for optical disks or an aftermarket drive cage.

 

 

Specifications, Availability and Pricing

Designed for motherboards up to E-ATX standards, the RSV-L4000 provides plenty of room for large dual socket motherboards and the dual 120mm cooling fans provide adequate cooling for PCIe devices. The case has seven PCIe slots for RAID controllers and network adapters.

 

The inner drive cages provide enough room for eight 3.5" drives and the three 5.25" drive bays allow for additional components. Two USB 2.0 ports flank the front side of the case next to the power and reset ports. The RSV-L4000 doesn't ship with a robust accessory package, but Rosewill fills each fan opening from the factory.

 

At $89.99, the RSV-L4000 is a very low cost unit with a build quality that exceeds expectations. We've seen several rackmount cases and never ran across a 1mm thick steel case for this price.
