INTERWORLD Electronics has released the RAK-380X chassis. It has been designed for server applications with large storage requirements, with twelve 3.5" swappable IDE drive bays, two 2.5" internal drive bays and slimline FDD and CDROM drive bays.
The RAK-380X supports a range of motherboards including dual Xeon, PIII and single PIII/P4 ATX motherboards up to a 12"x13" footprint. The RAK-380X is supplied with a single 460Wac power supply. For those business critical applications the RAK-380X can be supplied with optional 460WAC redundant power supplies.
High-speed processors require excellent cooling to maintain system reliability. In addition to the standard power supply exhaust fan, the RAK-380X provides four 9cm 51CFM cooling fans and one rear mounted 6cm 23.5CFM exhaust fan to ensure the drive bays, motherboard processors and expansion cards are well ventilated.
The RAK-380's 3U rack height provides a reduced space solution while allowing full height add-in cards to be inserted without the use of a riser card. This means that all motherboard slots can be used for system expansion.
