    The Pi NAS Case is finally here. This Pi NAS case has been fully funded on Kickstarter, backed by over 1,000 backers.

     

    Argon 40 is again taking a daring step to uncharted territory and offers the Raspberry Pi community a more technically sophisticated accessory for daily computing needs: a Build Your Own Network Attached Storage (BYO-NAS).

     

    Check out the review, unboxing, and setting up of Argon EON (pre-production prototype) by ETA Prime:

     

    Check out another Unboxing, Building, and Setup by Raid Owl, receiving the final product:

     

    Argon EON, a 4 - Bay SATA NAS Enclosure, powered by the most versatile single-board computer. By the very nature and essence of the Raspberry Pi, the Argon EON is a Build Your Own Network Attached Storage (BYO-NAS).

     

    The cyberpunk-inspired design of the Argon EON made no compromises when it comes to both form and function. The space-grade aluminum allowed us to play around with ultra-modern and angular forms without compromising the rigidity and structural stability of the enclosure.

     

    The Argon EON also took advantage of the natural heat conductivity and dissipation of the aluminum to augment the built-in controllable fan to cool down both the Raspberry Pi and hard disks even at heavy loads.

     

    The programmable OLED Display is neatly situated under the multi-function power button to allow for seamless integration with the case. The OLED can display the Pi-NAS IP address, CPU status, and other functions needed for the operations.

     

    At the heart of the Argon EON are its 4-Bay SATA Hard Drive ports that will fit two (2) 3.5” SATA HDD and two (2) 2.5” SATA HDD/SSD. The maximum capacity of each HDD bay is 10 TB 18 TB for a total of 40 TB 72 TB capacity. Even though it can support up to 72TB (theoretically), it is managed by a USB 3.0 port, so if you really need a huge capacity NAS, we would recommend getting a good ready NAS with PCIe Bus. 

     

    One of the few limitations of the Raspberry Pi is to wake it up from sleep. But with the Real-time Clock built-in the Argon EON you can now schedule tasks previously not possible with a bare Raspberry Pi. This feature is now at your fingertips with the Argon EON.

    Note: The Coin Cell needed for RTC is either CR1220 or CR1225.  The coin cell battery is NOT INCLUDED in the original packaging.

     

    The design mantra is “Simple is beautiful.” and try to follow this to the last detail. The team has worked hard to keep the ports of the Argon EON neat and systematically situated at the back.

     

    The Gigabit LAN of the Raspberry Pi which will handle the network communications is easily accessible. Access to the push to eject microSD card is also at the back in case you would want to change your OS in an instant.

    The GPIO is one of the features of the Raspberry Pi that we fell in love with, so we always maintained that there should be access to this very useful and customizable yet simple interface.

     

    Because this Argon EON can support up to 4 hard drives, it is upgraded with a 12 volts 5 Amps Power Supply.

     

    Argon EON case is designed to work with a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B board and it will need one. So get the bundle with the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B if you do not have one yet.
