One of the ongoing requests I've had from one school is to find a way to quieten their existing server as noise levels at present are definitely a lot higher than is comfortable for most classes.
All the obvious avenues have been investigated including finding a new location for it, replacing fans, etc... so I've taken a look at the only other alternative I can think of. ie: replacing the case itself.
After a fair amount of research I've stumbled across the Antec P190 which isn't technically a server case but has all the necessary fans and compatibility for the Intel Server SE7501BR2 motherboard which is an extended ATX format.
As far as I can see this case would probably do the job pretty well with plenty of cooling and alot of nice features like cable management behind the motherboard tray. The only thing it doesn't have is redundant power supplies (instead it has two PSU's that handle different functions: 1st for motherboard, CPU and VGA, 2nd for HD's).
As something of a novice to server cases though I thought I'd ask for opinions on whether looks to be a good option. So far I'm pretty impressed.
