The SilverStone DS380 NAS server chassis offers a great blend of performance and features. At only 1318.11 cubic inches (21.6 liters) overall, this small form factor chassis can accommodate Mini-ITX motherboards, an SFX power supply, a standard-length dual slot expansion card, and an entry-level liquid CPU cooling system. What highlights this chassis most is the tremendous storage expandability: the DS380 can support up to 12 drives, with eight hot-swappable 3.5"/2.5" drive bays and four fixed 2.5" drive bays. Three pre-installed 120mm fans effectively cool all the drives and other components. The aluminum front door conceals two USB ports and the power button for a uniform look. Other features expected on a premium SilverStone chassis are also included, like a quality build, an LED indicator with adjustable brightness, and removable filters, making the DS380 the perfect choice to build a powerful SFF NAS for home or office use.
For users migrating to small form factor (SFF) computers with large libraries of media files, storage capacity is often a compromise that is difficult to overcome. Choosing a smaller case may require additional purchase of external storage enclosure, while choosing a larger case with extra drive bays may defeat the purpose of going SFF in the first place.
To fulfill the needs of enthusiasts looking for a no compromise SFF media box, SilverStone designed a cutting edge product, the DS380. With the ability to accommodate standard components such as Mini-ITX motherboards, standard-length dual slot expansion card, and entry-level liquid CPU cooling system, the DS380 can easily handle high end system based on CPU with 95W TDP or above. Equipped with two 120mm intake fans and one 120mm exhaust fan plus externally removable filters on its top and side, keeping everything cool and dust-free is as easy as in any SilverStone premium chassis. Notable features from SilverStone's famed HTPC cases were also included such as LED indicator with adjustable brightness and lockable front door and power button.
Completing what is an impressive SFF case is DS380's signature feature: a modular eight hot-swappable drive cage design that supports both 3.5" and 2.5" drives. It utilizes a custom, back-panel PCB designed to support both SATA and SAS interface for increased compatibly with nearly all modern hard drives or SSDs. At only 21 liters overall, the impressively small DS380 is perfect for anyone looking to build a powerful SFF NAS for home or office.
