Product Overview

Silverstone DS380B 8 Bay NAS Chassis

For users migrating to small form factor (SFF) computers with large libraries of media files, storage capacity is often a compromise that is difficult to overcome. Choosing a smaller case may require additional purchase of external storage enclosure, while choosing a larger case with extra drive bays may defeat the purpose of going SFF in the first place.

Motherboard Form Factor Supported - DTX / mini-ITX

To fulfill the needs of enthusiasts looking for a no compromise SFF media box, SilverStone designed a cutting edge product, the DS380. With the ability to accommodate standard components such as Mini-ITX motherboards, standard-length dual slot expansion card, and entry-level liquid CPU cooling system, the DS380 can easily handle high end system based on CPU with 95W TDP or above. Equipped with two 120mm intake fans and one 120mm exhaust fan plus externally removable filters on its top and side, keeping everything cool and dust-free is as easy as in any SilverStone premium chassis. Notable features from SilverStone’s famed HTPC cases were also included such as LED indicator with adjustable brightness and lockable front door and power button.
Completing what is an impressive SFF case is DS380’s signature feature, a modular eight hot-swappable drive cage design that support both 3.5” and 2.5” drives. It utilizes a custom back panel PCB designed to support both SATA and SAS interface for increased compatibly with nearly all modern hard drives or SSDs. At only 21 liters overall, the impressively small DS380 is perfect for anyone looking to build a powerful SFF NAS for home or office.


• Support 12 total drives with 8 hot-swappable 3.5” or 2.5” SAS/SATA and 4 fixed 2.5” drives.
• Unbelievable storage space and versatility for small form factor.
• Premium brushed aluminum front door.
• Support graphics card up to 11” with supporter design from TJ08-E.
• Lockable power button design and adjustable LED from GD07.
• Includes three 120mm fans with filtered intake vents.

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

8 Bay Silverstone DS380B Premium Small Form Factor NAS Case with 3 Fans 3.5"/2.5" HDD/SSD SATA/SAS w/o PSU (SFX) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Niche Case This case is really unusual as a small form factor with this many bays (&hot swappable). If you need a small server or huge NAS I recommend this case. Well built and includes 3 fans. Might be worth investing in a fan controller only if noise is an issue for you as its non PWM fans are fairly quiet, but voltage control or PWM replacement/control can really quiet things down. Careful of the exposed capacitors on the back of the Drive mounts during the build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the smallest case you can fit 8x 3.5" hard drives in This is a pretty great case overall with a lot of thought put into its design. It's possible to fit big expansion cards in (at the expense of one hard drive slot), has a 3 slots for 2.5" drives for your system disks, comes with fans, and has a backplane so you don't need tonnes of power cables. The only complaint I have are that the hard drives cage could maybe do with a little more ventilation / a bit more space between the drives, and that the capacitors on the backplane could do with being a little less exposed - it's quite easy with a caseful of cables to bend their legs slightly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Idea is good but there are pitfalls... So I bought this case to replace the Fractal Design Node 304 case that I had. I needed more room for storage and was already almost maxing out the Node 304. This one seemed to fit the bill. I fitted the motherboard (ASRock Rack C2750D4I) and PSU (Silverstone 450W SST-ST45SF-G). Then proceeded to fit the 4 x 2.5" drives into the rear caddy. It was at this point that I realised that as nice and compact as that caddy was it didn't leave a lot of room for putting power cables into the drives (certainly using those supplied with the PSU). So, I duly bought a SATA power splitter in the hopes that it's cables would be more flexible. They were and the power cables all fitted. Time to put the SATA cables in now, both for the backplane on the main caddy (which has WD Red drives in) and the rear caddy. Another problem came to light now... As a previous review mentioned things became a little tight. So tight in fact that the top SATA port became damaged (I'll come onto this later). So, ignoring the advice about using straight cables, I switched the rear caddy to using right angled cables whilst leaving the main caddy on straight ones. Now, as long as I angled the main caddy correctly I could manoeuvre it in to place and get it working. So I left this for a few days and decided that I really did need the top SATA port working. Contacting Silvestone directly, I was informed that I could purchase a replacement backplane. Well, this worked out cheaper than replacing the case and considering that it was my fault it seemed like the best option. I waited for the replacement to come from Germany (and it did in good time). Went to replace and found that the new one I'd been sent was an earlier revision of the board than the one I had. Undeterred, I proceeded to make the switch. Even with the knowledge I had before I found that the top SATA port still seemed to flex more than any of the others - seems like a design flaw to me. The case was still noisy (the stock fans spinning constantly at 1200 RPM was meaning that I was getting grief from the other half). So, I decided to switch out the fans and replace with 3 x Akasa AK-FN058. This seemed to do the job. The PWM is meaning that I know have them spinning at 800 RPM which is much easier on the ears (both from grief and the noise). I still thought more needed to be done to improve the cable management and airflow. The SATA cables were causing a fair amount of mess and blockage in there. So, I hoped that Silverstone SST-CP11B-300 would help. Bought these, and they're really neat. Cable management seems much easier now. There is one slight issue though; the penultimate SATA port has two capacitors in the way so these cables won't fit in that port. Had to switch back to a standard straight SATA cable for that one. So, aside from the change of fans, the tightness problem and the issue with damaging the top SATA port, all is going well. I like the idea of the case. Build quality of the case itself is good, backplane aside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice case for my NAS/Media Server Great little case that can fit my 8 Hot Swap HDD's as well as 4 SSD's. Only gripe is that it would have been a little easier to fit out if the case was just another inch deeper as fitting the sata cables and everything was tight on the back plane of the caddy holder. I had to also dremel a small nick into the plastic video card facility for the 3rd HDD bay to fit my 8 sata port PCIe card. Only a 2mm slot but like I say above, if the case was 1/2-1inch deeper I wouldn't have had to do that, and the sata card is pretty standard size, not like a long video card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vastly under-rated NAS box Get either a mini ITX mobo with 6 x Sata, or a mini ITX with 2 x PCIe slots, add one or two highpoint 640 4 x sata cards, a bunch of thin 50 cm sata cables, a copy of windows 8 and run stablebit drivepool and drivescanner. You can put 8 x 6TB WD Reds in the front 8 bays, and a couple of SSD's (RAID1) in the internal rear slots, you'll get up to 48 TB of online storage. I built one of these with a lowly socket 1150 celeron in an Asus H81I, and I get sustained write speeds over the network in excess of 95 MB/sec. The backplane to the 8 front bays has both sata and sas connectors, and two old style 4 pin molex 12-0-0-5 volt connectors to power the drives. If your mobo only has one chassis fan header get a couple of 2-1 fan cables and run all 3 case fans off the single chassis header. You can use all 8 front bays with small PCIe cards like the highpoint 640 L This is one of the best DIY NAS cases I have ever seen, at any price, at this price, it is an absolute must buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid, compact box almost perfect for NAS. This lovely case provides home for up to 8 3.5" and 4 2.5" drives - perfect for a small NAS build. I've populated mine with the AsRock Rack C2750D4I which will soon have 32GB of ECC unbuffered DIMMS (4x 8GB) and eventually 8 6TB WD Reds in RAID-Z2 (two disk redundancy). As was to be expected, the mainboard installation and fan cable management was relatively straight-forward if slightly fiddly due to the small size of the box. I removed the front I/O completely as the mainboard does not have USB 3.0 or audio support - it would have been nice to have had a bare plastic I/O plug to fill the holes left but, as they are hidden behind the aluminium door they can't be seen anyway - minor niggle. The drive cage which holds the SATA/SAS backplane unfortunately has full sized capacitors that protrude into the case - it's a shame that solid state caps weren't used as they would be less easy to damage/break. Again, a minor niggle. Airflow seems to be OK so far (albeit with only two WD Reds installed) but the two intake fans and single exhaust fan (above the SFX PSU) are quite noisy - I may well replace them before long with some quieter ones. Overall I'm very happy with the case. I appreciate it's kind of a niche market as you could quite easily use a standard PC case to build a NAS but there aren't many of this size with up to 12 drive capacity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good high capacity NAS/home server case I'd have bought one of these years ago if it had been in the ITX cases section. I only found it in NAS Accessories by accident. It's a Silverstone case so don't expect the easiest of builds but everything fits properly and feels like it should last. The manual doesn't show the two screws securing the drive cage to the bottom of the case but you'll soon find them when the cage won't come out.... Don't ignore the suggestion to attach the cables to the mobo and any controller card before replacing the drive cage as finger space is very limited with the cage in place. Don't use the bottom slot in the 2.5" cage if possible as the connectors will clash with one of the molex connectors on the backplane. Consider your PSU carefully as there's not much space for unused cables. I went for the fully modular 450W Silverstone Strider but it's really overkill and the 300W Strider would probably be all that's needed. The SFX Striders have short cables so work well with ITX cases. I've got an i3 4130T and a Highpoint RR2720SGL controller driving 8 WD 3GB Red HDDs. It's remarkably quiet considering there are five fans and eight HDDs. I might actually be happy with my home server for a while......

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great NAS case - a little noisy This is a great NAS/server case with lots of flexibility and expandability. The build quality is good and is looks nice too. The supplied fans aren't the quietest in the world, but they do a good job of keeping everything really cool. I've got a full compliment of 3.5" HDDs in and they're stable at under 40degC even when being pushed hard.

Can I fit a 'low profile' expansion card in the case

Will the Highpoint RocketRAID 2720SGL (LN40239) fit in this case with a compatible mini-ITX mainboard ? Thanks
Asked by: Maxi
Yes you can as I fitted one in initially then due to not getting full throughput I swapped it out for a supermicro dual channel 8 port sata card which was longer so I had to cut out a 2 mm by 5 mm section of the plastic video card facility on the 3rd HDD bay with a Dremel cutter, just to stop the caddy slightly pressing down on the sata card and MoBo. Doing this saved me worrying about the pressure on the card and the HDD caddy still slid in okay afterwards.

Does this properly cool the drives?

I know there's a fan on the back but the front looks to be effectively sealed... where does the fan draw air from? Are there any alternative NAS-type cases available?
