Our IPC 3U-30240 is a very compact and cost-efficient 3U server-chassis, which - in spite of its small size - supports mainboards up to the standard ATX form-factor (also: mini ITX and micro ATX / please see "notice" above). The body of the chassis has a depth of only 40cm - plus approximately 3.5cm for the retractable 19-inch handlebars on the front-side.
Six front-side 5 1/4 inch drive-bays are available and divided into two areas with 3 x 5 1/4 inch bays on each side. In the left area, the chassis is equipped with a module for the internal fixed installation of up to five 3,5 inch harddisk-drives and a pre-installed 120mm fan. The module can be replaced with backplanes and standard 5 1/4 inch disk-drives. Please note that the 120mm fan in the module is quite important for the cooling of the system. Apart from the 120mm fan, there are two standard 60mm fans included at the rear of the chassis. Optionally, it is also possible to install up to three further 40mm fans in the grid of the 5 1/4 inch front-plate of the second installation-area.
Between the two 5 1/4 inch installation-areas, the central area of the chassis offers four drive-bays for 3.5 inch harddisks or 2.5 inch harddisks /SSDs (appopriate holes for both formats are available in the bays). On the front-plate there are two USB 2.0 connectors available next to the control-buttons and LEDs of the chassis.
This chassis supports full-height PCI / PCI-E expansion-cards. Please note however, that - depending on its size - the mainboard might partially extend under the power-supply, so that certain PCI / PCI-E expansion-ports might not be usable in this case. The chassis can be equipped with standard ATX power-supplies if the power-supply has an 80mm fan for backward ventilation and a maximum depth of 14cm. It is not possible to equip this case using a standard ATX power-supply with big 120mm fan and sideward ventilation (as the fan would blow against the enclosure).
We offer this case also with a matching pre-installed power supply. Optionally, a lockable front-plate and fitting telescopic sliding-rails are available from us. If you are interested in a complete server-system based on this case, we can send you a tailor-made offer according to your specification-needs.
