Any additional updates that anyone has on this chassis? Folks on Reddit supposedly have heard it was pushed to Q1 2019.

Was curious if any of the good folks on STH had additional info.

I swear I was just thinking about this. I really want to go with this case but since I haven't heard since the update of Q1 2019, I'm debating going for the U-NAS 810A.

I ended up going with unas-810a case and frankly really like it. I don’t quite understand all of the hate around it.

My thing is that I am moving to an e-2176g and am having a hard time sourcing a board and was curious if the layout of the cs381 provided more flexibility on that front.

Would be really nice to have at least a couple of options!

I'm trying to hold out because I know the Silverstone will be cheaper but I think I finally got everything that I want plotted out and storage is the hold up on this one.

I gave up waiting after months of no info on this case and decided to do a Supermicro 846 build after watching a Youtube video of a guy replacing all the fans with Noctuas. Basically went in the opposite direction of a small compact NAS. :cool:

I ended up going the opposite. Went from a 4U rack mount Chenbro and 24 drive DAS to the UNAS 810a and no regrets at all.

Those pics looks way better now. Year ago it was pretty ugly.

I found pics here: Silverstone Cases on Display at CES 2019 Including an All New Raven Prototype

For day 1 purchase it should come with SAS/SATA backplate with MiniSAS and power connectors. I have a feeling we'll see empty chassis and have to plug 16 connectors (8 data + 8 power) to make it work.

I'm not very excited about U-NAS 810A, (mATX, 8xHDD), because of that and bad cooling in that case. Hope Silverstone can address that.
While I'm not 100% sure with the direction they are taking these, they historically use 7 pin for disk and molex for power.

Looks like it did at the 2018 CES. Really curious what pricing will be and if it is laid out better than the U-NAS 810a.

Nothing really new, I'm afraid. I've seen "Q1" repeated in various places. There seems to be something official on F*acebook, but I won't go there.
Further, there are some launch parties scheduled for 03-23 and 03-30, cf. SilverstoneTek Home page (links to F*cebook, see above). My guess is that's when it happens.
