Mini-ITX case with 10 SATA hot swap bays

TL;DR: Get an R510 instead of a case. If you already own a motherboard or need to buy new, get an RPC-4116 (if you need to buy new or prefer a cleaner solution) or a DAS and an LSI 9200-8e. Finding ...

Hard disk case, similar to the included image

The real problem is that the difference between an external hard drive and an external hard drive enclosure is whether or not there's a drive in it. Most of the manufacturers sell the enclosures ...

Can I install USB 3.0 USB bracket if my motherboard does not support USB 3.0?

You will need an adapter for it because usb2 is 9 pin and your product mentioned is usb3 19 pin bracket so something similar like this can talk to both mother board and bracket.

Is there any rack-mount server case which support massive amount of HDD?

Discontinued Content Servers are excellent. I use these myself. Inexpensive, 900 TB per 4U with low cost 18 TB Seagate SAS drives. I use ZFS, so adding drives on the fly is simple. Redundancy can be ...

Smallest Footprint PC Case

The Silverstone SST-ML03B Milo ML03 HTPC accepts your standard sized ATX power supply, costs 60 quid, and measures 43.99 x 33.99 x 10.49 cm. 10.5 cm when set on end is pretty small.

What is the most reliable computer case fan you can buy?

For the consumer side I would recommend a Noctua industrial series fan. I can't say much about the enterprise products as I am not familiar with them.

Is there any mounting standard for prefilled liquid coolers?

Consumer/gaming-oriented case with high-end "big iron" server-level build quality

I personally use the Thermaltake WP200. That is, the W200 core chassis atop the P200 extension chassis. It follows the "if it's interior, it's metal" approach, right down to the removable ...

Why are these Micro-ATX motherboards different sizes

To directly answer your question of why they are different sizes, they are different models, and both are within the micro-atx specification.
