Not rack mount but traditional tower.
What's best available ?
well, what do you need this for?
# of HDD bays?
EATX? ATX? SSI-EEB/CEB? Proprietary?
Does it need to be a server case? Some desktop cases take E-ATX boards.
What size board?
How many hard drives?
Hot Swap drives?
Please provide some relevant information.
ATX style desktop tower max number HDDs
Redundant Power Supplies?
What is "Max Number HDDs"?
Plus, please answer my questions from before.
There are many cases out there. You need to be more specific in your needs. I can suggest a $100 case or a $800 case.
Plus, if you only need ATX, just get a standard PC case.
Build a Backblaze-style storage pod and tilt it on its side.
45 * 3.5" drives in a 4U-size.
I'm planning on using a Fractal design r4 for my server when it Is time for me to add another drive. It has space for 8 3.5" drives, I can use 5.25"bay adapters for more, it's silent, understated and good quality.
ATX tower or super tower style.
No video cards.
Fractal Define XL + 2 3 in 2 hot swap bays in the 5.25" bays will get you 16 drives and be under budget.
Well as cases go maybe there is a search engine like at newegg, that lets you select the number of drives and just search for a list.
holy cow 16 drives?!?!?!?!!?
your not gonna make it unless u use swap bays on any single case.
You could also go with something like this
and just put it on it's side.
is 20 3.5 drives.
How about this:
I love Lian Li quality.
I'm considering rack mount now.
