Case has really nice cooling, if you don't use standard hdd cage. 180mm fan producing airflow through entire cpu+gpu chamber, it has relatively short distance to get out of the case through rear panel. Psu is also hidden, so if you want to make it look neat, no need to pay for expensive full modular, because you can't see power supply in this case anyway. There is interesting layout of this case, that has multiple advantages.
after a longer time viewer of this thread, I thought I'd FINALLY post my Rig. Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
marezmichael it looks awesome. Love the open bench style. I just cant tell if your keyboard is hanging out in thin air
look nice BUT it's damn dark! could you up the light maybe and take some more pics please?
Please excuse my crappy camera/photography skills and the dust.
Quick phone pics...
found homeless on the side of the road adopted it
What is that? Hex core, 8GBs DDR4 and Raid 0 SSDs? Looks like a power house!
looks like a good candidate for a pair of voodoo2's... go retro!
It isn't that old. It has a sata rom drive.
looks like a Core 2 Dell Optiplex or something similar, which was probably hot. Don't hook up ethernet or wifi to this, as most of these have a "Phone Home" rom chip on the motherboard once it's connected to the internet.
our server machine at work looks identical to this
My Portable LAN Rig:
The case seals, rolls, and manages to keep my baby cold
Case is a Rosewill RSV-L4000 inside of a tough box, the model of which I'm unsure of
2*E5520 Quad Xeon CPUs @ 2.27Ghz
500GB HD OS, 500GB HD Games, 4*1TB HD's RAID 0 for multimedia encodes
AMD 6850 1GB Crossfire driving a 1080P display
^ That's very cool.
I guess the term 'portable' is relative Awesome mod!
Wheels make anything portable.
that is a new one i had on hand the old one was ide dvdrom drive that work some time
check no rom chip it had a intel pentium 4 at 3.00ghz in it upgrade it to a pentium D 3.00ghz
I dont think it was hot being its age and how damage the case was
Haha, soooo true. I went from a CM Stacker 810 (on wheels) to a Corsair 550D (not on wheels) and my LAN life has gotten MUCH easier. Just strap on my Gear Grip case carrier and away I go!
what was in the harddrive, sandman?
there was no hard drive in it had to use my hard drive from my PlayStation 2 to make it work it dose have a windows xp coa on the case
lol, that's all I got to this...
Durrrr durrrr herpa derp
All in a nice big NZXT Phantom 630 full tower:
You seriously need to turn that "Oreck XL airfilter thing" into a badass retro HTPC case mod.
I thought the exact same thing.
Building a mini version of my current PC, ordered 3 video cards (both will have GTX780 Ti, Full size tower will have 780 Ti SLI) Small case has a 4770k ordered for it.
Okay, as someone who used to LAN-party on a weekly basis that thing is HELLA SEXY!
Okay! Found out who made it by dint of my MAD-ass Google Skillz!
The cases are ECS Composite cases.
Here's a link to a 3U on EBay.
Here's a link to a 5U that looks pretty frackin' familiar.
The version you have is one of their legacy cases (no longer in production). Though they still do produce rolling rack cases.
They start at about $1700...
Found a black version of yours (4U) on EBay for about $320.
And, the seller's name is a coincidence (i.e. it's not me).
The 5U linked above has a couple listings in the $375 range.
Been running this rig 6+ years upgrading/replacing parts as needed.

Nice Rig! How do you like the HP monitors?
Nice Rig! How are you likin' those HP monitors?
thanks, appreciate it. actually in the process of building myself a Galant Style Desk, as they are waaaaaaaay to expensive here in Germany
But the monitors are great, just purchased 3 Vesa Adapters to mount these. I will be posting pics as soon as the desk is complete and monitors are mounted.
