ATC S4000 SX-1 Server Case
by David, 5 December 2002
a brand most geeks would associate with uber-expensive aluminium
cases. It's true that in most cases, CoolerMaster designed computer
casings tend to be more pricey than other aluminium cases from competing
companies. On the other hand, it's my personal opinion that CoolerMaster
cases also tend to have the more aesthetically pleasing designs,
and top notch quality as well.
we're presenting a review of the ATC 4000 case, which happens to
be a bigger version of the ATC 400. Not only does this case fit
all requirements for a mid tower case, it can also function in a
4U rackmount configuration. To top it all off, it comes with the
traditional CoolerMaster quality and impressive looks. Is this case
worth your money? Read on to find out.
like to thank the local distributor of CoolerMaster cases, LCTech
Sdn Bhd, for lending us this case for review.
a quick take on the specificatons taken from here.
It took a bit of digging around to find the specifications as this
particular case isn't listed in many of CoolerMaster's product pages
for their worldwide offices.
