Locked in a deal with the seller for 300+shipping for:also note that the sas2 is 6.0/gb (sata II) which is a great backplane, but the included raid card (5805) is only 3.0/gb (not sata II). Im not sure how you plan on interfacing with the backplane, but if your going to use the 5805, i just detailed a huge amount of issues i had with getting any type of sata drive beyond 8x drives to spin up on an adaptec 5805 (and i also tried a 5405z) with a BPN-SAS-846EL1 (not the sas2, this one is the 1.5/gb version) in this thread:

I have a X9DR7-LN4F with an LSI2308 that I will be using to interface with the back plane. I think I did well. Can't wait for it to arrive.
