Introduction

This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective's website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

Continuing our series of innovative and interesting computer enclosures, I bring you the review of the Skyhawk MSR4620EP(F) Aluminum Mini Server Case. One thing Skyhawk is notorious for is the overwhelming choices of options. This case is the newest in the MSR Series of cases getting back to what the MSR Series cases were made for, servers. With this case and the F option pack, it comes with 5 stock fans including two 80mm side blow holes, two 80mm front fans, and one rear 80mm exhaust. This should be enough to cover any server cooling needs you may have, and for me, it did.

The MSR4620 is a room case with plenty of space for CDRs and hard drives with a total of 10 bays. That includes 4 external 5¼” bays, 2 external 3½” bays and 4 internal 3½” bays. Here are the specs for the MSR4620 from the Skyhawk website:

Once again website numbers are hard to find and getting these specs were a bit tedious, but I got most of the pertinent information that one would require to base a purchase on. Now its time to move onto the graphical portion of this review.
