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.


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.


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.


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.


To order this product or discuss your requirements in any further detail please contact us or call us on 0800 652 1649 (+44(0)1827 303670 from outside the UK) and we would be happy to help.

1U and 2U Server CPU Coolers - Now Available

Published by Richard Parry on 19th Sep 2013

We are happy to introduce our new range of high quality all-copper CPU coolers designed for 1U and 2U Server applications.

Our fantastic range consists of Active (with a fan) and Passive (no fan) Intel and AMD socket CPU coolers.

Both the active and passive coolers are an all copper construction for excellent thermal cooling of the CPU. Our cooler ranges have been tested to Intel and AMD standards.

Our 1U coolers use a squirrel/blower style fan, which pushes very large CFM of air over the CPU but keeping the noise level to a minimum, compared to that of traditional fans.

All our active coolers are 4 pin, allowing for PWM to the motherboard. This allows the motherboard/BIOS to dynamically control the speed of the fan and is a huge leap forward compared to previous’ models of 1U active coolers that were 3 pin only.

Storage What's New

Published by Richard Parry on 4th Sep 2013

August has seen some brilliant new product lines and technologies being introduced in IT. There was the introduction of the new Supermicro 10th Generation (X10) motherboards and 12Gbps SAS was announced.

September is shaping up to be a fantastic month – with Western Digital releasing their 4TB Red NAS drives and Intel finally releasing their new Core range of Haswell based CPU’s. Also towards the end of September Intel will release the new range of E5 Xeon CPU’s, with core counts up to 12 cores, 24 threads and 30MB of L3 Cache – blimey!


If you’ve not already tried the Western Digital Red drives we suggest you do. They are 24/7 NAS suitable. They are full-on, so are not green – but that’s how most people want them – especially for RAID where powering-down would otherwise cause damage to a RAID array. Most new RAID controllers and motherboard SATA controllers should support this new 4TB disk size.

Also some good news is all of our chassis with 6GBps backplanes (either Discrete SATA or SFF-8087 MiniSAS) are fully compatible with these new 4TB hard drives. You should however check with your RAID controller, HBA or motherboard that these will be. A lot of manufacturers are checking compatibility with their hardware, so please check with your vendor first though.

12Gbps SAS is still a very new technology, with currently only LSI leading the market with their new 9300 and 9311 series of controllers that support this new technology. As soon as we have 12Gbps backplanes we will publish a new blog article and will contact our individual customers to let them know – Exciting stuff!

Interactive Product Finder

Published by Richard Parry on 15th Aug 2013

We’re proud to announce the successful launch of our very own interactive product finder.

The product finder has been designed to allow for a quick and easy way to find your ideal chassis, based on a number of search parameters – always returning one or more available products or chassis.

You can for example select the chassis height (1U, 2U, 3U, 4U etc) and then select the Depth. This would then show the available chassis and saves you the time hunting through cases to try and find the right depth for your application.

You can also search by the drive bays, so if you wanted 12 hot-swap 3.5” bays – not a problem – just select from the dropdown and it will instantly show you compatible chassis.

Also on our product finder is a PSU finder. Just select the wattage of PSU you need and it will display the available power supplies that we have available for your search. We stock both industrial and standard type power supplies so have plenty of choice to suit your requirements.

Why not give it a go – Click here to access our Product Finder!


Compatibility Woes? Try our Chassis, Storage or Power Supply Matrix's

Published by Richard Parry on 15th Aug 2013

We’re proud to announce we’ve built some fantastic product matrixes on our site that integrates real-time with our product database.
We’ve got 3 matrixes setup – Chassis Matrix, Storage Kit Matrix and Power Supply Matrix.

The Chassis Matrix will allow you very easily see in a simple list all of our rackmount chassis and what they include, such as the rack height, order code/product SKU and more importantly depth, height and how many internal or external drive bays. It also accurately advises what PSU options are available for the chassis which will hopefully help customers find their ideal chassis very quickly.

The Storage Kit Matrix shows our storage options and what chassis they will fit into off the shelf.

The Power Supply Matrix shows our full range of power supplies and what chassis these PSU’s fit into.

Of course if you have any questions about compatibility or would like to discuss your exact requirements please call us on +44(0)1827 303670. Our team would be happy to help with recommendations on chassis, power supplies and options for your exact needs and requirements.


New Product Line Introduced

Published by Mark Jarvis on 1st Jul 2013

We’re pleased and excited to now be stocking a fantastic line of “family” server chassis.

The family consists of a 1U, 2U 3 and 4U chassis, matching in both their functionality, internal look and feel and the external/front bezels. They have aluminium louvered front bezels which give an excellent look and feel and compliment the family of chassis.

The chassis are already a firm favourite with our customers who want to manufacture their own server products to specific markets such as for appliance servers, VoIP and IP telephony, CCTV and Rendering Systems.
The four models in this family are;


This is a fantastic 1U short depth chassis, only 250mm deep. It supports a Mini ITX motherboard, single PCI slot and uses an energy efficient, low power Flex ATX PSU. The chassis can either have 1x 3.5” hard drive installed, or 2x 2.5” drives. This chassis is very popular with our customers already for uses as rack server appliances, such as firewalls, VoIP servers and CCTV recording systems. It is lightweight, compact and looks great in a rack cabinet with other telecoms equipment.


This is a 2U short depth chassis. It is only 380mm deep, so perfect for wall mount rack cabinets, or back to back installations in 4 traditional 800mm deep server cabinets. The chassis supports an industrial 1U Single PSU, a Standard ATX motherboard. Internal expansion is superb with 5x 3.5” hard drive bays.

Additionally the chassis is very versatile with the PCI slot expansion bays. The chassis accepts 3x Full Height PCI cards (when used with a suitable riser) as well as Low Profile PCI Slots. The beauty with this chassis is that a combination of Low Profile and Full Height cards can be used and the position of these slots can be easily adjusted by moving the full height cage to the left/right. This is incredibly flexible for customers who use unusual card configurations, for the likes of CCTV capture cards, VoIP analog/digital interfaces and more.


This chassis very similar to the SC-2380, but the noticeable difference being that it accepts a standard ATX PSU (80mm fans only), accepts a Micro ATX motherboard and has an external 5.25” bay. This bay could be used with a hot-swap drive module or a CD/DVD drive. Some of our customers use this chassis for CCTV whereby a DVD burner is installed for archiving/backing up video footage to be taken off site – as an example.


The chassis is the same as the SC-22400, apart from it doesn’t have an external 5.25” bay. Instead it has 6x 3.5” internal hard drive bays.


This is the bigger brother to the 2U, SC-2380 chassis. It is the same short depth, 380mm. It can however also accept a standard ATX PSU, which makes serviceability and initial purchase costs very low indeed.

As the chassis is 3U it will accept 7 full height PCI cards, has 7x 3.5” hard drive bays and takes a standard ATX motherboard.

The large number of drives that can be installed internally make this perfect for installations where a lot of data is stored and require permanent fitting (e.g. no hot-swap). As a result customers use this for CCTV video storage, gaming and web servers.


This is the daddy of the chassis. It is 4U in height, 390mm deep so is still perfect for a wall cabinet installation/short depth comms rack and accepts 5x 3.5” hard drives.

The benefit of this chassis over its smaller counterparts is that it will allow for multi processor motherboards and has plenty of internal cooling, thanks to large 80mm fans.

All models have fans installed behind the louvered front panel, drawing cool air in and over the internal components. The air flow holes are behind the louvered panels, which make the chassis look like it doesn’t have any airflow holes, and therefore making a clean look in any installation.

All models also have the usual front panel, including a power and reset switch, hard drive and power LED’s and USB sockets. The buttons are spring loaded, so cannot be accidentally pressed in, so reduces an engineer accidentally pressing a button.

If you would like to discuss your requirements using either this range of a similar range of our products please contact us or call us on +44(0)1827 303670

Hot-Swap Hard Drives the Easy Way

Published by Richard Parry on 12th May 2013

Do you currently have a chassis that you want to add hot-swap to, or additional hot-swap? There’s a simple solution – Our SC-H300 or SC-H500 hot-swap modules.

These modules are designed for installation into chassis with 3 or more spare 5.25” drive bays. You can use these modules in any kind of chassis and they don’t even need to be Logic Case chassis either.


This allows for 3x 3.5” SATA hard drives to be installed into 2x 5.25” drive bays.  There is an 80mm fan at the rear to cool the installed drives. The unit has front mounted LED indicators to show the status of each drive, both for its active state and also the disk activity. There is also an LED to show the fan status. If the fan fails or drops below a specific RPM the indicator will show and there will also be an audible alarm.


This is the same type of product as the SC-H300, but supports 5x 3.5” hard drives into 3x 5.25” drive bays.

On the rear of all of these are 2x Molex Power Cables and standard SATA connectors. The 3 drive model (SC-H300) has 3 SATA, and the 5 drive model (SC-H500) has 5 SATA connectors.

The hot-swap modules are SATA 6Gbps compatible and will also work with previous generation drives in a mixed combination mode, so you could use 6Gbps (SATA 3) and 3Gbps (SATA 2) drives if you wanted.

We have built a Storage Kit Matrix on our site so you can easily identify which of our own chassis our hot-swap modules will fit into, just click here to view this matrix.

If you would like to discuss your exact requirements or are unsure if these hot-swap modules will fit into a different brand of chassis please contact us or call us directly on +44(0)1827 303670.


Logic Case & Supermicro - A Perfect Marriage

Published by Richard Parry on 18th Apr 2013

We’re pleased to announce the marriage between Logic Case and Supermicro – May they function long term in rack cabinets all around the world!

That’s a bit too geeky – But thought we would share our excitement.

We have been working closely with Supermicro in the United Kingdom to ensure compatibility of our chassis with their motherboards and server solutions.

By using our chassis with Supermicro means a lower initial cost of purchase per unit.

Our chassis have full compatibility with a wide range of Supermicro motherboards. To discuss your requirements please get in touch or call us on +44(0)1827 303670.


SAS and SATA JBOD's the Easy Way

Published by Richard Parry on 18th Mar 2013

We’re pleased to introduce some new product lines. JBOD’s!

JBOD enclosures are purpose built for use as storage enclosures with SAS and SATA architectures.

The JBOD enclosures we have support a variety of drive configurations with in-built SAS Expanders. The models we currently have available and recently introduced are 12 and 24 bay versions.

These are JBOD’s with a built in single-port SAS Expander manufactured by Asus and a Zippy/Emacs Redundant Power Supply. This combination allows for an Enterprise grade hardware DAS (Direct Attached Storage) solution and is perfect for use as additional storage for single servers or for virtualisation environments.

Each JBOD has a single SAS Expander built in. This allows a single 8088 external cable to be connected to a suitable HBA/RAID controller that supports SAS Drives. Although the technology used is SAS, the drives you use in the chassis can be a combination of SATA or SAS. This does depend on your RAID card, but most RAID cards support both.

Our JBOD’s are also SAS II, so are SAS I (3Gbps) and SAS II (6Gbps). In addition they are SATA Compatible, so will work with SATA II (3Gbps) and SATA III (6Gbps) drives.

You can use a combination of SSD or traditional hard drives up to 3TB (as of our current testing and market availability) drives in each enclosure.

Please take a look at our JBOD selection by clicking here. To discuss your requirements or to get more information please contact us or call us directly on +44(0)1827 303670
