SilverStone Unveils CS381 Chassis for DIY NAS + Creation Rigs

Today's NAS servers are getting increasingly powerful, and rising beyond their mandate of providing storage over the network, with media and production/creation capabilities being added to them via fast x86 processors and GPUs. SilverStone is targeting this market with its new CS381 pedestal chassis. Measuring 400mm (W) x 225mm (H) x 232mm (D), with a volume of 30 liters, the case offers eight 3.5-inch hot-swap caddies behind a lockable front bezel. These 8 caddies are split into two columns of 4 caddies, each, which have SATA 6 Gbps and miniSAS 12G HD backplanes. There are also two concealed 2.5-inch mounts for your SSDs.

The CS381 has room for a micro-ATX motherboard with room for a full-height graphics card, but a CPU cooler only as tall as 6 cm, which is plenty of room for the pump-block of an AIO CLC. You can use a CLC with a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator thanks to the two 120 mm rear exhausts. An SFX/SFX-L power-supply bay allows you to deploy a reasonably powerful PSU. Two additional 120 mm fans can be mounted along the sides. Front-panel connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports, and HDA jacks. The company didn't reveal pricing.
