Rosewill RSV-L4000: A Nice, Sub-$100 EATX Server Chassis

With the transformation of a basement into a large Linux server room (50+ computers), I previously wrote about the sub-$50 4U ATX server case and 2U micro-ATX server case commonly used for housing the many Linux systems in this lab running continuous performance benchmarks. For the EATX systems, here's the server chassis I've gone with and experienced great results out of this EATX/SSI rackmount chassis that can be found online for as little as $80 USD.

Logisys 4801: Spending Just $50 On A 4U Server Chassis

Yesterday I wrote a bit about the 2U server chassis I've been using that cost just $69 USD a piece. Meanwhile for fitting standard ATX motherboards and larger full-size graphics cards, there's a 4U chassis I've bought several of thus far that retails for just over $50.

StarTech 42U Rack Cabinet Make For Nice Low-Cost, Rackmount Setups

In the process of building our new open-source, Linux benchmarking test farm the server racks I settled for are the StarTech.com 42U rack cabinets. I've bought three of these StarTech.com 42U (4POSTRACK42) racks in the past few weeks and have been happy with their quality for low-price and it includes casters, levelers, and cable management hooks.

SilverStone Raven RV05

We're finally starting to reach a state where case manufacturers are doing away with the seldom-used 5.25-inch drive bays! With computer enthusiasts not often needing optical drives these days in their desktops, SilverStone introduced the Raven RV05 this past summer that does away with all 5.25-inch drive bays (though there is a slim slot-loading optical drive bay slot if you really need it...). With Linux users especially being rarely reliant on optical drives given that most Linux distributions can be installed in a "live USB" manner and most software obtained over the Internet via distribution package repositories, the Raven RV05 we're looking at today should be efficient and attractive to many Linux users.

After spending $30~60 on an APU, and as low as $30 on a motherboard, you are probably looking for an ultra low-cost computer case / PSU to go with a new budget AMD AM1 build, right? If so, the Rosewill RS-MI-01 is a very cheap mini-ITX enclosure that also includes a 250 Watt power supply, but its $45 price tag may raise concerns over quality.

SilverStone Raven RVZ01

When opening the box to the SilverStone Raven RVZ01 there is a disclaimer printed on the packaging in multiple languages about being a "unique product" and recommending users first reading the included manual. This statement isn't just some marketing verbage to build up hype or purchasing confidence in the product, but with being able to accommodate up to a 13-inch PCI Express graphics card and four drive bays within this petite mini-ITX chassis, it truly is a unique product. Today at Phoronix we're looking at SilverStone's Raven RVZ01 mini-ITX chassis, the SFX 450W ST45SF-G power supply, and SST-CP11 SATA cabling for building a great Linux HTPC or your own Steam Machine/Box Linux gaming system.
