    Thanks.
    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.

    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

    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!

    You seriously need to turn that "Oreck XL airfilter thing" into a badass retro HTPC case mod.

    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.

    http://www.ecscase.com/loadmastertm-rackmount

    They start at about $1700...:eek: :eek: :eek:


    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.

    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.
