So I've been wanting to purchase a server chassis that has 8+ 3.5" drive capacity on the front. Right now I'm running in a fractal design R5 which is nice but i was thinking I'd like to upgrade maybe on a budget...I want to be able to use like an 8i or 16i HBA card

You could go with a Rosewill or Norco case but if you want to do it right, buy a used Supermicro chassis. They are well worth the cost. A CSE-826 (2u, 12 x 3.5” drives) or CSE-743 (4u, 8 x 3.5” drives), would be some good options that meet what you want. CSE-836 and 846 are also great and give you a lot more room to expand. Do it right and buy something that’ll be dependable.


Let me know if you’re interested and I can explain what some of the model differences are and ways to keep them cool and quiet.
