    iStarUSA D-3100HN reviews

    D-3100HN 3U Compact 10 x 3.5" HDD Bay Trayless Hotswap microATX Chassis (Blue HDD Handle) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Compact Chassis I purchased this chassis for a few reasons, first and foremost because my "rack" is actually an old network cabinet and thus limits the depth of components for me to around 20".� This chassis was designed to fit in an AV rack or stack of AV components (it even comes with feet that would make it blend in perfectly with other 19" AV components in a stack) and is thus much shorter than most rackmout disk storage chassis out there.� It was perfect for my application.� The other reason was that this was used in the build of an Unraid server, and this 3U chassis was the closest I could find to matching the custom 3U case (also by iStarUSA) used by LimeTech in their 10/4 storage server. Inside, although this is a short case compared to the 25"+ most rackmount cases come in at, I never felt cramped while building inside it.� The case material is aluminum, so its lighter than you might expect, but the fit and finish are fantastic. The only negatives I can think of for this case (and they're minor) revolve around the fans and the drive bays.� The fans are frankly what I'd expect, but they're loud, I replaced them with Noctua PWM fans.� Though this is a breeze for the 2 case fans, its harder for the 2 fans mounted to the HD cages.� Those cages are essentially a seperate component, the BPN-DE350SS drive cage by iStarUSA.� The fans mounted to them use a shallower than average depth, and use a proprietary connector to connect to the backplane.� It took some modification but I was able to attach my Noctua fans directly to the back of the cages using shorter screws and removing the fan shroud.� I then connected them to the regular PWM ports on my motherboard.� The backplane on the cages does NOT use the standard mini SAS connector, it instead has 5 sata ports corresponding to each drive bay, and 2 sata power ports.� The other holes on the back of those cages you see are switches to control fan speed if you use the included fans. The only other thing I'd mention, and this is neither a positive or negative, is that the front 2 USB ports are USB3, so in order to connect them you'll need an internal USB3 header on your mobo.� The IvyBridge era mobo I used had external USB3 but not an internal header, so in my build those ports are unfortunately not connected. In conclusion none of the tiny annoyances were even worth me removing a star, I was delighted with this case during the build, and now in use. Pros: - Fantastic Build Quality - Unique short depth - Spacious interior - Great disk density for 3U - Professional look and feel Cons: - Just average fans (fine in a closet, but not for a rack sitting 8 feet away from your desk.) - No mini-SAS on backplane (will need to use mini-SAS to SATA breakout cables from most HBAs)
