[quotemsg=20970249,0,2634094]Could someone answer me this - why would you want 2 motherboards or 2 entire PCs in 1 PC case? Just curious when, with all the virtualisation and CPU/GPU power available these days, why would you?
Very disappointed in this case as I've been waiting nearly 6 months for this very case (900D upgrade). Unfortunately for me, not enough 3.5" drive capacity. Another question I'd love to be answered is why all the rage these days with PC cases having lots of 2.5" drive bays as opposed to 3.5" drive bays? InWin seems to have really gone down the path of more 2.5" as opposed to 3.5" in as much there's not really much of a selection (if any) for a case supporting 8 x 3.5" drive bays. I believe the largest 2.5" drive (non SSD) is about 5TB, whereas it is 12 TB for 3.5" HDDs. I currently run 8 x 3 TB 3.5" HDDs in a raid 6 configuration and am really pushed for useable space. With 4K movies now becoming main stream with each one taking up to about 60-70GB per movie (uncompressed), I believe that I will be requiring far greater storage amounts that I feel 2.5" drives can currently provide. Please someone tell me why 2.5" drives seem to b e all the rage now with PC case manufacturers?[/quotemsg]
Possibly a whole house firewall box, and a HTPC.
Yes, you could virtualize one or the other. But I much prefer the firewall box being actually airgapped from everything else, rather than being a VM inside something else.
Why 2.5" drive mounts? SSD's.
My current system has 5, totaling ~2TB. All my large space needs (movies, etc) are in the 4x4TB spinning drives in the NAS box.
