[Build Help] NAS Killer v4.0 - 2U Rack Mount + Power Saver Build

Hey guys - I’ve chatted with a few of you on the discord. While most of you have been pushing me to go 4U, I really want to try to squeeze everything in on a 2U.

I’m looking for anyone to double-check the parts I have selected before I begin ordering to make sure they all will fit inside the case. I have already double checked myself and the dimensions seem fine. However, I am having trouble finding the dimensions of the SAS card.

This is going to be a simple, low powered (always on), home backup storage pool for photos, videos, documents etc. I wanted to see if I could fit it into 2U. Which it looks possible (kind of a bit pricier than I was expecting) ~ again just wanted to make sure I’m all set.

Case: RSV-Z2700 $89.99
Mobo: Intel DQ77MK $64.99
CPU: Intel SR00M Xeon E3-1260l Quad Core 2.4ghz 8mb Server CPU Processor $35.00
CPU Heatsink+FAN: Cooler Master i70c (Copper Core) CPU Cooler - $18.99
RAM: 4X 4GB Micron1Rx8 PC3-12800U DDR3 1600Mhz Desktop Memory RAM DIMM NON-ECC $38.95
SAS Card: LSI Logic SAS 9211-8i 8-port 6Gb/s PCI-E SATA/SAS HBA Raid Controller +Cable Sun - $44.95
SAS Storage: HUS723030ALS640 HITACHI 3TB 6G 7.2K LFF 3.5’’ SAS HDD HARD DRIVE (x4) - $23.63 Each
Power Supply:EVGA 500 W1, 80+ WHITE 500W, 3 Year Warranty, Power Supply 100-W1-0500-KR, Black $47.49

Hi. I am also looking to keep my build within a 2U case. How was your luck with the Z2700?
