Nice inexpensive case for 6 HDDs

Post by ChriZathens » 19 Jun 2015 13:27

Recently bought a case for my linux server...
The case is an Aerocool Qs-202 Black - purchase cost was around 40 euros
Thought I should post it here, in case someone wants to house their NAS in a small case
It has good airflow, easy trays for up to 6 HDDs, nice cable management abilities and it is really small at <38cm height
It also has one 140mm Aerocool Shark intake fan and one 120mm Aerocool Shark exhaust fan. Also has ability to mount 2 more fans and the existing ones are quiet ones. All have dust filters.
A photo of the inside below

In the following days I will try to take a few pictures with all my hardware installed to show you how it looks like filled with stuff
