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!

Available Now - New Model for our Aluminium Chassis Family

Published by Richard Parry on 7th Nov 2013

We’re pleased to announce a new model for our very popular aluminium chassis family.



This new chassis is 2U in rack height, 400mm deep, so is perfect for installing in wall cabinets or small comms-cabinets and as a result is ideal for applications such as NAS, Firewall, Router or simple workgroup server applications.

Internally the chassis has support for 6x 3.5” hard drives (or SSD’s when used with a suitable bay converter), 4 low profile PCI-E expansion slots, standard ATX PSU Support (80mm fan only) and Micro ATX motherboard support.

On the front bezel, which is entirely manufactured from CNC machined aluminium is a simple but effective look. The bezel has an open area for 2x USB ports, and the usual Power and Hard Drive LED’s, plus push switch power and reset buttons. The entire front bezel also acts as a discrete air-vent, as it has louver’s throughout to allow air through into the case. Airflow is aided by 2 front mounted, quiet running 80mm fans. These are directly in front of the 4 hard drive bays, allowing excellent forced cooling.

Also on the front bezel is an area where a custom sticker/logo/branding can be affixed. Ideal for our customers who are marketing a product range using this chassis. 

We can also offer OEM on this as well as all of our other cases. This could include subtle changes such as making the front a specific colour, or the entire chassis, to making adjustments to the metalwork internally. Just get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Finished in an industrial quality, black paint finish this chassis wouldn’t look out of place in any companies comms rack or server room.

SAS 3 12Gbps Drive Support - Now Available

Published by Richard Parry on 1st Nov 2013

It’s here – 12Gbps SAS 3. The latest batch of chassis we have coming in are now fully SAS 3 12Gbps enabled, allowing the next generation of 12Gbps SSD’s to be used for lightning fast data transfers – twice the speed of SATA III/SAS II 6Gbps.

We've found an excellent chart giving the SAS Roadmap;





These backplanes are still backwards compatible though, so will continue to work with existing SATA I/II and SATA III Drives, as well as SAS I and SAS II.

Not all of our current in stock chassis have the new backplanes fitted, so if 12Gbps is a requirement for you and you intend to use a compatible HBA or RAID Controller and drives please get in touch to ensure the chassis we supply have the 12Gbps backplanes fitted, otherwise the existing standard 6Gbps would be fitted.

We would recommend LSI controllers for 12Gbps drive connectivity. Please take a look at their offering at; http://www.lsi.com/products/host-bus-adapters/pages/default.aspx#tab/product-family-tab-1

 

If you would like to discuss your storage server requirements, and unsure if 12Gbps can be beneficial to you please contact us or call us on 0800 652 1649 (+44(0)1827 303670 from outside the UK)
