That's a lot more reasonable, even with shipping.  I'll do a bit of research, but at least if I get the rear part, it allows me to use the front slots for SSDs and SFF disks as well.  I assume I'll need a disk controller card for the rear cage assembly as well.


This is a really helpful forum.  Thanks so much.

380P and 380E are different cases..  the E comes with a bay in the rear for 2 more drives..

Ok, I know this is a not the topic of the thread. I was able to follow this and get my HP DL380 G8 in to HBA mode. Unraid runs like a dream. However I now need to repurpose this machine and need to restore the hardware RAID, removing HBA mode. I have tried every SPP (or SSP) and they all give me the same.., no options to config the controller and the ctrl+alt+D+B+X on the menu does not work. I do not even know the command line needed if it did. Tried to install mint and use the other way however, you cannot boot from the hba drives so you cant install the full software. Same for Windows.. I have tried all I can think of. Anyone have some knowledge or idea's!?
