    I have a Rackable SE3016 and an LSI 9205-8e that I'm trying to sell. I've upgraded to 6TB disks and no longer need all of the extra bays to house hard drives. This setup has worked well for me in Ubuntu 14.04.3 Server, but should work fine with other OS's as well. I would like to sell this in the lower 48 states. Payment via Paypal gift. Thanks!

    LSI 9205-8e $80 + free shipping (Flashed with P19 IT Firmware, and low profile bracket only)

    Rackable SE3016 $130 + $35 shipping (includes two 8088 -> 8088 cables, and screws)

    Or, buy both together for $200 + $35 shipping.

    Was that the backplane that you couldnt fully populate with drives over 2TB?

    Nope, I had this full of a combination of 6tb, 4tb, and 3tb drives without any issues. I was just trying to reduce my number of spindles and replace some of my very old drives at the same time.

    I just upgraded to (10) 6TB drives and reduced the number of total disks, so they all fit in my other chassis. No need for an external chassis at this point.

    Thanks for the question. In its stock form, it's fairly loud (I wouldn't want it in my living room).

    Luckily, there are tons of guides to swap the fans to make it much quieter. I have had it in my basement, so any noise it makes is manageable. It's not ridiculously loud, just louder than you would want in a living space.

    This price + shipping is way cheaper than if you buy it from eBay, so you could spend a few extra bucks to silence it if you needed to.
