Can someone please recommend a Supermicro chassis for this blackplane. I have 1 836 and 846 Supermicro chassis already. But it looks like this blackplane is for a 2U Supermicro chassis.

826 backplane pretty much only works in the 826 chassis. Unless you need 12gbit and have a chassis to put it in, probably not the best choice.

Fairly certain that it also works in the 12 bay portion of the 847.

My plan is fast SAS3 on the 12 bay and SAS2 spinners in the 24.

It should, but the 24 bay backplane for the front is really expensive. Almost better off buying a new chassis given the cost of a used 847.

The seller digitalmind2000 on eBay has been auctioning some 847s off one at a time and they’ve been going for less than $200. I even got mine for significantly less than that.
