NETGEAR Unveils Rack-Mount ReadyNAS 2100
The new ReadyNAS 2100 from NETGEAR is targeted at SMBsLeading networking products manufacturer NETGEAR today announced the launch of ReadyNAS 2100, its new rack-mount product for small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs). The new system will allow SMBs to share, store and protect their critical files on both LAN and WAN networks.
The 1U 4-bay storage system comes with 2TB, 4TB and 8TB storage options in a rack-mount form factor. An easy-to-upgrade design and ease of backup and recovery makes the ReadyNAS 2100 an ideal solution for SMBs. The NAS can be used in mixed client environments and provides both entry-level server and desktop virtualisations.
ReadyNAS 2100 supports Windows, Linux as well as MAC OS files. The system is also equipped with enterprise-class hard drives and Error Correction Code (ECC) RAM memory.
“Combined with our existing ReadyNAS Pro and ReadyNAS NVX, the addition of a rack-mount solution broadens the SMB portion of our award-winning ReadyNAS storage line,” said Mark Song, product line manager for NETGEAR’s Network Storage Business Unit.
“We’re dedicated to providing a complete range of solutions for the SMB, and we’re extremely proud that our ReadyNAS unified architecture solves numerous data management problems with a single system, making capacity management, access, backup, restore and disaster recovery worries obsolete. With ReadyNAS, SMB network managers can eliminate common data concerns and revolutionize their storage environment without needing to become an expert,” he added.
Availability of the ReadyNAS 2100 begins in June and the system is likely to be priced at US$1,899.

don't know yet. I intended to go to a Thermaltake one, but I forgot that plans have changed and I won't buy an i7. So I'll have to see what fits best. (the research I did on heatsinks was for i7)

Rapid declared the Thermaltake Big Typ VX the best among 25 coolers. And its cheaper than others too. The article is dated back on 2007 so I don't know if any new better ones are out. I'm googling right now...

The Big Typhoon VX is also a very good cooler and actually very few seem to buy them as of late as it's been around for a while now. I still remember the original Big Typhoon being on sale (The heatsink block itself is the same as the VX IIRC) when I was building my Athlon 64 Socket 939 setup in 2005. That's not to say of course that it's not a capable cooler as it is. Some research should reveal what the best option is for you :)

My personal recommendations would include



haha! Exactly! You know, the Ultra-120 (its Thermalright and not Thermaltake, my mistake) is the first I have in mind, paired with a Noctua fan, like you proposed. My other options (the complete Noctua solution I referred to previously) are the 2 Noctua options you posted.

I've read that the Thermalright is the top one when paired with Noctua fans. The only problem that I know about this heatsink, is that Thermalright sends the heatsink, only for you to find out that it needs a lot of lapping...

The Noctua solutions are very nice too. If I go with the Silverstone case, given the airflow (top fan sucks air) what do you think is best? A tower version HS or a fan-at-top version?

A fan-at-top version will help dissipating the heat from the cpu mobo surrounding heatsinks, but do you think that it would have a negative impact in the overall airflow and especially that of the GTX card?

Personally I'd say that a tower solution exhausting air towards either rear fans would perform well. I haven't heard much about the issues with the base of the Thermalright Ultra 120's lately so whether they've improved or not I do not know. If in doubt though, the Noctua option is a safe bet :)

Yep! Indeed. As soon as I build this thing I'll post photos and an overall opinion of the combination. I'm really thankful because you have helped a lot! There is a saying that states: "There is a frustrating of plans where there is no confidential talk, but in the multitude of counselors there is accomplishment". It's soo true.

11-05-2009, 08:08:53

No trouble at all. Looking forward to seeing a build log :)

A specific P35 motherboard called, Abit iP35 XE Pro, or a P45 motherboard, prefferably, something decent but at a good cost, like the ASUS P5Q Pro.

12-05-2009, 12:41:12

The IP35 Pro XE was fantastic value at around £58-65 while it was still around. It's a struggle to find them these days. :(
