Performance

A case that almost prides itself on being simple has very little to mess things up or cause problems once everything is put together. I was very impressed with the total weight of the Array R2 with our full build inside coming in lighter than even our past shuttle builds! With only one fan in the case I was a little concerned about the cooling power of the Array R2 but when paired up with the PSU fan and all of the extra ventilation we didn’t have any problems with heat buildup. That same fan while doing a good job of keeping everything cool was also quiet. I could hear the stock heatsink fan from our CPU more than the front fan or PSU fan on the Array R2.

Moving the Array R2 around was much easier than our previous build even without a handle. The light weight and small size work well at making the build portable when needed while taking up little space. Even the included power supply did a good job in our testing. With it being an 80 Plus certified power supply I had no worries for its efficiency but at 300 watts it is a little smaller than what we normally use. Even with our high wattage CPU we never even came near 200 watts with the build leaving room still for additional hard drives in the future as needed.

Love this case; when I build a server this will be the winner I think!
