free postage applies to those on this forum that registered for that benefit quite some time ago. price of £11.74 is for order on line & collect in store. is this not still a steal at £23.77 delivered? I haven't seen this below £100+ anywhere else for quite some time, or maybe I haven't been looking hard enough(?). and it does weigh the best part of a whopping 16kg without packaging!

what type of motherboard can go into this?
#7
This chassis is this price for a reason ..... it's old and outdated. Please research carefully before making your purchase. Scan have been trying to shift these for ages (god bless 'em). The meagre(20-pin) 350w PSU is proprietary and not swappable for a "regular" psu.

Well, I went and bought one. For £10 + VAT (free delivery), I thought it was worth it for interest's sake alone.

The PSU is dual 350 watt hot-swappable! I'm not sure whether that means it gives you 700 watts? These two PSUs are contained in a single housing, with a single set of cables emerging from them. In any case, 350 watts is probably enough for a core2duo provided that you don't get a high end graphics card. I assume from the build of this thing that when it says 350 watts, it really means that 350 watts is obtainable 24/7 and it's not comparable to a standard low-end 350 watt PSU.

The plug for the motherboard power connector is 24 pins, not 20.

There is another power connector with 8 pins (only 4 connected, with 2 yellow and 2 black wires). Is that required with a 24 pin connector?

There are two drawbacks that make this completely unsuitable as a case for home use, though.

The first really really big one is the connector for the front panel. This is terminated in a ribbon cable with what I guess is a proprietary Intel pin-out connector. I don't see how to connect this to a standard motherboard without separating all the cores of the cable and soldering on standard plugs. Maybe I've missed something? Any help on this much appreciated, because if I can solve this problem I can probably use the case. Otherwise, it will become landfill, I'm afraid.

The other drawback is maybe not so important. This is a really large case, with space for 2 x 5.25" and 2 x 3.5" fixed drive bays. That may be enough for most people, but it is not a lot given the size of the case. There are also 5 hot-swappable SCSI drive bays for 3.5" HDDs, which are not usable with SATA drives. Given the cost differential between SCSI drives and SATA drives (plus getting a SCSI motherboard etc.), this is not economic. It may be possible to dismantle the hot swap bay, so it can be used with SATA drives - I have not tried, as I can't get past the front panel problem.

This still available ? can't find it on the todayonly page and a search for SC5100 returns nothing
#11
Oh, I'll just add that I am pretty sure that you can remove the PSUs and the space left over will take a standard size PSU that can just be screwed into place. So, really the main issue for me is the front panel connector.

If the SAI2 motherboard guide is right, then connector (on motherboard side, not case side!) is as follows:

Pin Description
1 Power LED Anode
2 +5VSB
3 Key
4 Reserved
5 Power LED Cathode
6 Reserved
7 Hard Drive Activity LED Anode
8 Reserved
9 Hard Drive Activity LED Cathode
10 Reserved
11 Power Switch (Low True)
12 NIC Activity LED Anode
13 Power Switch (GND)
14 NIC Activity LED Cathode
15 Reset Switch (Low True)
16 SMBus SDA
17 Reset Switch (GND)
18 SMBus SCL
19 ACPI Sleep Switch (Low True)

21 ACPI Sleep Switch (GND)

23 NMI to CPU Switch (Low True)

Does this help?
#13
Thanks for the pin-outs Kommunist. I really only need to connect the on-off switch and the reset switch, so soldering it's doable. I just would prefer not to, if possible.

This is still available - search for KHD2, or use the link that Flipd gave. Price now is £70 if you go through the standard search, though. ;-)
#14
If soldering isn't an option then you can probably do it with jumper wires. You know, the ones with pin on one end and
female single connector on another.
I am using this kind of a jumper for my logic analyzer - I think it was sourced from RS components.
#15
Is this what you had in mind? http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?criteria=FS66W&DOY=25m9

I can drop into my local maplins when passing and check them out, as it is hard to tell from the description/photo whether they are suitable. It seems that these wires will add 30% to the cost of the case. :-)
#16
As you said, it is quite hard to see what these actually are. Good luck :)
#17
Just got mine and am very happy with it. The SCSI 5-bay drive unit can be adapted to take any HDD by removing the 4-screws, plastic back and circuit board. It then leaves a gap at the back where you can connect your normal drive cables. This won't be hot-swap but works fine. Just about to order my 2nd one.

Thanks for the great buy!

At the same price? I never managed to find it at the cheap price yesterday, just doing a search and getting it for 32.89
#19
Kerr, what are you doing about the front panel connector?

Testlab, there's a link about 5 posts into this thread that drops it into your basket for £9.99 + VAT. There's also postage, unless you have the free Scan postage offer. The box with the PC case inside weighs about 20 kilos, so postage is a lot!
#20
It's an ancient case - I've got an old Toshiba Magnia server somewhere with a couple of Pentium IIs in it that uses a reskinned version of this case with an old Nightshade server board.
#21
Does anyone know if the scsi backplane will work with just a normal scsi bus connected to it, or do you also need to have this HSBP-A thing mentioned in the manual?
