Over the past few months, I have been slowly building up and adding onto my test regiment for network storage and switches alike. After ramping up to five systems, I quickly came to the realization that using a desktop ATX chassis just wouldn't work. As anyone who has built multiple systems knows, typical ATX cases can take up a lot of vertical space, and this quickly leads to cluttered desks and tables.
The solution to this is to build your systems into a rackmount chassis. Server racks, like most things, started in the enterprise arena. They allowed businesses to maximize space, and build for the future. This has started to slowly trickle down to the average consumer.
Today, we have a 4U rackmount chassis from InWin: the R400. The R400 is compatible with ATX, CEB, and EEB form factors, and allows PS2 and 1+1 mini redundant power supplies to be used.
Features, Pricing and Availability
The InWin R400 rackmount chassis features a typical 4U rackmount footprint at 22" x 19" x 7". Additional features include a locking front door, adjustable PCI card retainer for full height and low-profile cards, in addition to a tool less drive bay design with optional storage kits.
Without the kit, you still have six 5.25" bays, and two 3.5" bays, along with another two available internally. Cooling of the chassis is maintained via two 80mm fans placed at the rear of the chassis.
Pricing of the InWin R400 at the time of writing sits at $129.99 at several online retailers. Warranty of the chassis is listed at two years.
