What's the best value SAS3 chassis for 40+ disks? Something modern, not too power hungry, well supported and has remote IPMI to turn off/on?
CSE-847E1C-R1K23JBOD fits the bill but is £1500, anything better value out there?

I'm not sure supermicro are shipping the chassis either at the moment and are only shipping full system builds. That is what I've heard anyway.
Plus the chassis is about $1200 alone which I'd rather not spend if I can avoid it. Backplane is only $400.
512GB of 32GB DDR4, even the cheapest 2133MHz is still over $1000 in itself. Way more if it's faster memory. The boards themselves are a good $500 each, and the cheapest xeon silvers are $100-$150 USD.
If they really are selling this at $750 USD then grab it up, it's an amazing deal.
I'd bet its mounting pressure (or a short circuit under the board with your standoffs - make sure they're in the right place).

OK. I was under the initial impression people were getting this for games as the craft computing video and eduncan mentioned. For those 2U servers with no extra power port (or for those of us with a limited power budget in our colocation...), this thing is absolutely perfect for NVENC and...
