    Edit: I suck and forgot the depth requirements. See above 1U options though :D

    Yea budget is much lower than that. Not trying to spend more than a few hundred $.


    I have considered that but I've worked with the SC113M and other 1U SuperMicro chassis' and they are just too loud for where I have my rack. I can keep a 2U much quieter and still have decent cooling.

    The double depth counter-rotating 1U fans are usually jet engines, but the single depth fans in the ebay listing are pretty quiet if you have a PWM controller, and since you're just putting in SSDs it is probably enough cooling for you. The FAN-0100L4 is rated at 34 dBA, but usually after startup you can barely hear it within 5-10 feet.

    I had a very different experience with those fans. They hummed very loudly in my office sitting 10 feet away. However I didn't use a PWM controller, just plugged them right into a SuperMicro board.
