    NICE! :cool: Now, where do you cheaply get HDD brackets? I'm looking into buying two 825s, but I want to use 2.5" SSDs as well.

    Here is an ebay search:

    (y004g,9w8c4,661914-001,654540-001,668261-001)

    Dell 9w8c4 does not have recess for air-flow. IBM part FRU00FC28 is somewhat similar but does have recess for air-flow.
    There are couple of variations of HP adapters in the above list as well.

    pick your poison :)

    I have purchased a couple of the dell version but they dont work really well with supermicro hot swap tray.
    The one side of the 2.5" drive is not aligned with the existing hole meant for 2.5" drives. But then again this is something that can be solved with some patience and a drill :)

    Not in a SM OEM box I take it?

    Seems about 50% of chassis shipped in non-oem have the handle snapped off, psu handle smashed, tabs bent, or something ridiculous that hard foam would prevent :(

    Hopefully you can replace the handle and power button and it didn't damage the chassis holes :(
    I have a couple with a hanging power button from that.

    My 36 bay was shipped in rolls of bubbles, it just doesn't do enough when the item weights 50lbs+ and has sharp edges, and points in spots :( The box arrived like a soft noodle, luckily it wasn't dinged up too bad :/ and I rolled it like a tire into the house, ha ha :D

    Good luck

    I've had a big ebay seller\iT Recycler forbid me from bidding because I opened claims on them with ebay due to bad shipping of chassis, and shipping my chassis to someone else. I lost out on another 36 bay because they sent it to the wrong place and the receiver REFUSED to give it back.

    Seller Accepted the return. Generated first a USPS lable but the post office won't ship things over 70 lbs. So he eventually got me a Fedex Label so it's on its way back as crappily packed as it was the first time. Ordered another 36 bay SAS2 on ebay with a pair of 2680s on an X9 board from a different ebayer.
