    Like the title says, looking for a deal on a 4U Supermicro chassis. Ideally it is a workstation case that can be easily converted to rackmount. I know ya'll have crazy ebay saved searches.

    I think it also costs around $38 for the rail kit.

    Here is another 743, used 665w though and super quiet series. Also $300 ish shipped but you also get some old school server components (makes me think it is an older server)

    Intel is making some nice looking 4u pedestal chassis' which can be rack mounted (with some conversion kit). But being new generation, they are not what I would call a "deal" at this point.

    However, there are several models to choose from; here is one fitted with (16) 2.5" hot-swap bays, 120MM fans and a 550W silver PSU. They market these as "office friendly", though I have not heard them...

    Good luck in the hunt Jeggs101.

    peace,
