    Won't take a genius to figure out that Supermicro chassis are a pretty good fit for this list, but let me know what you guys have and how much shipped to Seattle, WA (or if available for pickup if local). Something like a Supermicro SC829, 827, 826 or 825 would fit the bill pretty well.

    Absolute requirements:

    1. Rack-mountable (if you don't have rails, it must be possible for me to source them later);
    2. Hot-swappable backplane for at least 8 x 3.5 drives (12 would be better) with caddies/covers;
    3. SAS and SATA support (min SASA/SATA2, strongly prefer SAS3/SATA3);
    4. All LEDs/Buttons in working order (or possible to repair);
    5. Replaceable fans (hot swap or otherwise);
    6. Capable of shipping to WA (or available for pickup if in Seattle area);
    7. Specific model details (or if vendor rebadged OEM, the OEM's model - for example older Citrix Wanscalers were rebadged Supermicro 1u and 2U chassis);
    8. If chassis supports mixed LP and FH slots, have riser cards;
    9. Flexible on form factor, but must support standard sizes in that class (mITX, ATX, eATX etc);
    10. Support for modular I/O shield at rear;
    11. Supports at least one LP slot;

    1. NVMe Support (probably dreaming here);
    2. Platinum or higher PSU efficiency (if chassis supports modular/backplane insertable PSU);
    3. Additional inserts to support 2.5 drives in a 3.5 drive bay;
    4. No missing card brackets at rear;
    5. SFF-8077 connectivity from backplane (and cables included if supported);
    6. Front chassis USB ports (USB2 or better);
    7. Spare HBA if you have one;
    8. Shorter depth;
    Flexible on:
    • Form factor (highly doubt I'd need to support anything bigger than ATX);
    • Mixed LP and FH slots (LP are preferred);
