Enthoo Pro Quiet case
We have a choice of two quiet cases for our 2011 Pin systems. The most commonly chosen is the Enthoo Pro case. This is a larger than average case which gives the powerful 2011 pin processors plenty room for cooling whilst letting you have several hard drives and, if needed, two graphic cards inside the system.
The alternative case is standard Antec case used in our Skylake systems. The Antec is smaller so may run noisier than the Enthoo because it may need the fans to run faster to keep the processor cool.
Drive Bays: 6 x 2.5" Internal, 1 x 3.5" External, 9 x 3.5" Internal. 4 x 5.25" External
Case dimensions :
235 mm wide
480 mm high
500 mm deep
The Antec P100 Case
This case is designed to run as quietly as possible, whilst having as many drive bays as you can for reasonable expansion. The door can be opened and left completely flat against the side of the case if preferred and doing so does not increase the noise level too much.
The case includes 2 drive bays which face the outside world - so you can have two optical drives or one optical drive and a card reader, as well as 6 internal drive bays. It has two USB 3 and 2 USB 2 sockets on the top of the machine as well as a headphone and microphone socket. More USB sockets are available at the back of the machine and another USB3 socket will be available on the card reader which is normally mounted inside the case. We use a USB3 card reader is all our system specifications, unless you have asked us to remove it for some reason.
Height: 484 mm
Width: 220 mm
Depth: 523 mm
Please allow some extra space around the sides of the case to allow proper air flow. Monitor cables and USB wires will require slightly more space at the back of the computer. For example, the depth listed is the physical size of the case itself so there will be extra cables hanging out of the back that will need some room. The case is a fairly normal size and actually slightly smaller than other quiet cases we have used.
