Been keeping an eye on this case for a NAS I've been planning to build. Best price I've seen in a while!

I was able to get Walmart to price match this for me to take advantage of their free shipping, but YMMV.

Just reach out to fractal design. They will send you the adapters for the big capacity drives. You can get 8 pairs.

Bought over the summer on a 100$ offer, never looked back - it's awesome. At 70$, it's a no brainer if you need a new big NAS.

Only thing to be careful is the length of the SATA power cables from the PSU, mine hit against the top of the PSU because they are too long, making the "caddy" harder to pull in/out.

I have this case. It is huge but can fit a lot of drives. Cable management becomes tricky as you start filling all the slots. Pretty quiet and fits a 1660 super. I never really found a well-priced slot drive for it.

I love this case. I've been using mine for a few years now and a home server for my IP PoE cameras and to store photos.

I agree with the other comments on cable management. I think using an SFX power supply with modular cables would really keep it clean.

The fans are excellent and the entire unit stays quiet and cool. I love that it's able to hold six hard drives (combination of 3.5" and 2.5").

I'm putting the 14 TB easy store drives in this rig and since there are too many platters to fit a middle screw on the side of each drive the caddies don't fit. Anyone have an easy solution to keep the drives from sloppily hanging. I was thinking of trying to design a bracket that holds four or five drives together on the bottom screw for each drive but my 3D printer is temporarily down and I was hoping to find a solution that's a little bit easier.

Got this one for $100 something year back.

Despite of having enough padding and thermocol sheets. front panel hooks broke while I was moving this box from one place to another.

Overall great case, it's comfortably holding my 10x 3.5" 10TB and 1x 128GB SSD with 10GbE ethernet. Using it headless with Proxmox and k3s.

This is tempting. Glue or Buy This?!

contact fractal support. they sent me adapters for free + $8 shipping.
i would not let them hang on one set of screws. the harmonics and rotational mass of the platters will shorten the life of the drive.

I've been looking at setting up my own NAS for quite awhile, and with this price I'm tempted to start.

With this Fractal case, does anyone have any recommendations or tutorials of how you could mount HDs within?

I am building a couple of new i7-9700 systems based on Asus micro-ATX boards. This looks like a nice case, but some of the reviews I read suggested replacing the stock fans to improve the thermal performance and noise if running systems under a heavy load. Do you think that is a valid suggestion for systems that will mainly be used for video and photo editing?

Also, does anyone know how the thermals and noise of the Fractal case compare to a Thermaltake Core V21?

I assume the clear panel is made of plastic, not glass. If so, does it hold up okay against scratches?

Maybe something like this [amazon.com]

EDIT: Good chance you will find something better for your needs if you search for "hard drive rails" and look through the results.

Anyone using this as a giant external that houses multiple drives? What would be the best way to get this up and running so the drives show up in a windows based machine? Can it do this without a motherboard or does it require its own motherboard? If it needs a motherboard I'm guessing it would be better to just load up windows, or a FREENAS type OS.

How's everyone using theirs for storage? I have tons of 3.5 drives I'm looking to consolidate and was hoping I could get a bunch into something like this and access it from my main windows machine.
