Hi George,

I think no 4U rack-mount cabinet can fit a 120mm fan at the rear.
We did not do that, I've fixed the Intel liquid-cooler and and 120mm fan at the front.
(Actually 2, one on each side of the cooler unit).
This also gives a good air-flow from front-to-rear, through the cabinet.

The EYE-4806 rack-mount needs a bit of mechanical work done, in order to make it work properly.
(Codegen 4U-500/600 does not)
EYE-4806 is just an example, there are of course several others one can use.

What's available, varies of course greatly between different countries & markets.
Which one that suits your build best, is also depending on what motherboard and which components one choses.

Please note that some of the Z77/X79 higher-end motherboards with maximum PCIe slots, is bigger (longer)
than the ATX format (12'x9,6' / 305 × 244mm). They will require deeper cabinets.

Here is some other ideas on 19" chassies:
Compucase - http://www.hec-group.com.tw/rackmount_chassis/4u/

Codegen - http://www.codegenworld.com/products.asp?max_id_search=20

Hope this helps,

Thank you very much

Righ now I made my first rackmount station with following specs:

MB: Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 (rev. 1.0) 4 pcie + 1 pci ,bios F11
Memory: kingston hyperX blue 1600 DDR-III DIMM 8Gb KIT 2*4Gb <PC3-12800>
CPU: Intel Core i7-3820 LGA2011
Proc cooler: Shagon w720, which was made for 2011 socket
Graphics: SAPPHIRE FleX HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 - DualDVI+HDMI+2miniDP (5 outputs)
Rack case: ARK IPC-4U600, vents: front 120mm, back 80mm X 2
PSU:SeaSonic M12D-750W Modular
2x SSD 60 Gb SATA 6Gb/s OCZ Vertex 3
Capture: decklink duo + DVI extender
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

For now it's working just great, 5 outputs 1920x1080 without any problems and CPU temps no more than 70C (with liquid it's can be less) but for now it's ok

My next one will be better

Nice that it works well for you!

BTW, ARK IPC-4U600 is similar to Codegen 4U-600.
