Logic Case Short Depth Storage Chassis - Available from 1st September

Published by Mark Lambert on 6th Aug 2014

With our SC-4316, 4320 and 4324 hot-swappable storage chassis going from strength to strength in the UK and European marketplace we are happy to say we expanding the range.

From September 1st the SC-4316, 4320 and 4324 chassis will be available in a shorter 550mm version whilst still retaining the ability to house a CEB (12”x10.5”) motherboard.  The four backplanes are horizontally mounted for better ventilation and each are mounted with 12gb/s SFF-8087 mini SAS connectors to support SATA 2, SATA 3, SAS and Solid State Drives (SSD’s).

Another new feature the launch brings is specific mounting points for internal 2 x 2.5” HDD/SSD for setting up a RAID based operating system setup.

The flexibility of our storage range is something that has driven the success of these chassis’ and we have retained this in the short depth versions as they are able to house ATX, 2U single, 2U redundant and 4U mini-redundant power supply options.

SC-4316S



The SC-4316S is a short depth 4U rackmount server chassis, at only 550mm depth. This chassis has 16x 3.5” Hot-Swap SATA 6Gbps ports. Connectivity is by 4x separate Mini SAS connections, to go to a suitable RAID or HBA controller.

The 3.5” bays also accept 2.5” drives, and have screw-holes for mounting an SSD or HDD.

This model also accepts 2x standard half-height 5.25” drive bays, so is ideal for use with optical drives and tape drives. Also using our SC-H250 you could install 4x 2.5” hot-swap drives – ideal for an OS or additional storage.

This chassis has options for with or without a fan wall internally, with support for either 80mm or 120mm fans.

This chassis also has excellent PSU options and will work with Mini Redundant, 3U Redundant and Standard ATX (either 80mm or 120mm fan versions) PSU’s. Brackets are included for all options.


SC-4320S



This is a similar chassis to the SC-4316S, but supports a total of 20x 3.5” (or 2.5”) hot-swap drives.

As this is still a 4U chassis and allows for an additional 4 drives over the SC-4316S model it won’t accept 2x 5.25” bays, but has a mounting for a slimline optical, as well as 2x 3.5” (or 2.5”) fixed drives, mounted securely above the hot-swap drive area.



SC-4324S



This is the bigger brother to the SC-4320S. It accepts 24x 3.5” (or 2.5”) SATA 6Gbps hot-swap bays. Internally there is a special bracket option to allow for 2x 2.5” fixed SSD’s (or HDD’s) which are ideal for use as the mirrored OS pair.

Due to squeezing in so many drive bays into a 4U rack chassis there is no option on this case for an optical drive.

Mini-ITX NAS Chassis - Available Now

Published by Richard Parry on 20th Apr 2014

We are pleased to announce the introduction of an excellent Mini-ITX NAS Chassis to our range of Logic Case products, the SC-N400.

The new chassis is ideal for home or office use, and due to it allowing any standard Mini-ITX motherboard it can be used with many combinations of internal components, allowing for excellent upgrade potential.


The NAS chassis is an attractive looking case. The front has a high gloss, piano black finish around the bezel. The actual front has a mesh filtered (matt black finish) lockable door too, which protects the drive bays within, and the power/reset switch and activity LED’s. The chassis itself is made from high quality steel in a black matt finish.

The case itself is only 7.75” Width, 7.5” Depth and 10” Height, making it one of the smallest hot-swap NAS cases on the market – smaller than many standalone NAS systems. It also weighs only 4KG in total (minus PSU and internal parts).



What sets this case apart from the rest is the 4-Bay 3.5” 6Gbps SATA hot-swap bays. This makes this tiny case one of the smallest Mini ITX cases on the market with built-in hot-swap. What’s more is the hot-swap will work with all motherboards – at the rear of the hot-swap module are 4x standard SATA connectors, which could connect either to an add-on RAID card, or directly to the motherboard.

In addition to the 4x hot-swap bays there is also room internally for a 2.5” hard drive or SSD. This makes it ideal to install a single drive for running an OS, such as Windows or Linux, and leaving the 4x hot-swap drives for the data storage.

To give an idea of the storage potential please see a quick chart below of the capabilities;





The actual casing of the system can be easily removed using thumb screws to allow full internal access to all components.

At the rear of the case there is a space for a Flex ATX 1U PSU, which we also supply in a range of wattages, including 80plus efficiency. The most popular PSU is 320W ATX and will be more than sufficient to run the most demanding of Mini-ITX Motherboard/CPU/RAM combination, an add-on card as well as the 4x hot-swap drives.

To add to the flexibility of the case it will also accept a standard single width, full height PCI card. This could be either a graphics card, or a RAID/HBA controller – or left blank for future expansion. Most Mini-ITX motherboards have a single (maximum) PCIe slot.





To help with airflow there is a single rear mounted 3pin 80mm fan. This is a very quiet fan, but could be changed-out for a 4pin or super-quiet fan without any modification to the chassis.

PC Cases and Home Server Cases - Coming Soon

Published by Richard Parry on 22nd Nov 2013

I thought I would let you in on a small secret – We’re expanding our Logic Case range to now include PC Cases and Home Server Cases.

Our new PC Cases range will include Tower (Mini ITX, Micro ATX and Standard ATX) and Desktop models, suitable for both home and business use. These models will range from simple cost effective models up to high-end gaming/enthusiast chassis, designed for massive expansion and suitable for water-cooling etc.

Our new Home Server Cases will include a range of quiet, home NAS style server cases. Most of these will be Mini ITX in form factor, and allow for standard ITX motherboards to be added. Some will be fixed internal drive bays, whereas we predict our best sellers will be with models that include 4+ Hot-Swap SATA bays. These small units look great in any person’s home network.

Watch this space!
