4U atx server rackmount case

Post by kuun » Thu Nov 25, 2004 12:40 am

i am currently using my 4u rakmount case for y main computer.

i have my ecs k7s5a(the second one) with my amd xp 2200+

i love it, there is LOTS of room, the case came with a 120mm case fan intake on the front and 2 80mm fans mounted on a bracket across the middle of the case blowing backwards.

cooling is not a problem. the added ability of locking the front panel. and with a hdd caddy with my main drive installed with the ability to turn it off by key makes it a wonderful thing when you have meddlesome kids around.

i'll get some pics of it soon

Hey Kuun, glad to see you posting a bit more often again!

Just a word of warning. I have been using the K7S5A as well and I have loved it for the stability that it has brought me for so little money! However, I changed it the other day for an ASUS A7N8X-X (needed USB2). When I removed the K7S5A I noticed it had four bulging caps :(

I was very disappointed. Now I have two motherboards with bulging caps that I have to work on. However, I was expecting more from ECS, and since the board isn't that old, I am very irritated that this is still happening today.

But otherwise I would recommend a chipset from SIS anyday over the VIA stuff.

Looks like the "Stolen Cap Juice" story continues.
There are *almost* no bad BP6s. There are mostly bad caps.
