I'ld also like...

    Looking for 8+ bay hot swap chassis.

    Hi there, I'm in the market for a chassis with 8+ hot swap bays. Currently have my eye on RSV-L4412, but this chassis is just massive! Hoping for something a touch smaller, if possible, maybe 3U, around the same price point ($229.99 CAD). Any suggestions?
