SKU: J2660 Categories: ,


The J2160 and J2660 are the first of a new line of reconfigurable cases, designed to adapt for your needs. At only 20.5″ deep, this new chassis is our shortest 2U that can house full-size ATX boards and full-length PCI cards. Its unique, adaptable bay design allows for up to two removable 3.5″ hard drives and a slim DVD±RW drive. Three 80mm system fans and a compartmentalized layout ensure cooling of all components by forcing airflow through all internal and exposed drive bays. Both air intakes are also guarded with removable air filters for easy, tool-free maintenance.

Behind the wide, lockable access panel are two front-panel USB ports, a system reset and the ATX power switch. Inside are four bays for hard drives suspended on shock-resistant, vibration-dampening grommets. An adjustable baffle and row of tie-down slots keep cables neatly secured. Adjustable card-edge retainers are provided in two different lengths (three long and three short) to keep PCI cards securely fastened. Three full-height card slots are available on the standard chassis with a wide range of riser cards to choose from. With the optional, 7-slot rear panel, up to seven low-profile PCI cards can be used.

Drive Bay Configurations:

The standard chassis is equipped with one 5.25″ bay and one “low-profile” 5.25″ bay with a 3.5″ bay adapter. “low-profile” bays are the same width as 5.25″ bays, but only 30mm high.

A) 1x 5.25″ bay, 1x 3.5″ bay: The 3.5″ bay is in a vented adapter for hard drives, card-readers, or any other 3.5″ bay device.

B) 1x 5.25″ bay, 1x low-profile, 5.25″ bay: Storcase® model DE75 removable hard drives can be mounted directly into these low-profile bays. CRU Dataport® model DPLP removable drives can also be mounted using the RK624/RK625 bracket.

C) 2x low-profile 5.25″ bays, 1 slim-CD bay: This setup allows for two removable hard drives to be mounted, without sacrificing an optical drive. A slim CD/DVD drive and RK626/RK627 bracket are required.
