I present to you, the beast! I am downsizing with my 2nd child on the way. This has been lightly used in a homelab environment, running 24/7 for the past ~2 years. The noise is surprisingly good with this having all aftermarket fans and quiet PSU. Still gets good static pressure. I had it next to my kitchen and my wife tolerated it ha.

I am looking to sell the entire beast with sas3+nvme expanders + rails + mb/ram/cpu/nvme combo + pcie cards.

The price is $1300 + shipping; the U.2 drives are separately priced.

Supermicro Case CSE-847 36-bay chassis SAS3/NVME
  • SAS3 expander backplanes, BPN-SAS3-846-EL1 & BPN-SAS3-826-EL1-N4

  • 2x NVME PCI-E cards & cables to enable NVME on the rear NVME/SAS3 backplane

  • 1x SAS3 2-port internal to external port adapter with cables to hook up external JBOD
  • 4x fans replaced with quieter supermicro variants

  • 1x 1k28w SQ super-quiet PSU

  • 32x standard caddies & screws included
