Sorry bud. Like with anything on eBay, sometimes you have to wait and keep searching for the right item or deal. Good luck in your search.

If your not using SAS connections you could also look for a SM case with the passive connections. Backplane (SAS846TQ) This supports all size hard drives to date. You could also use SAS breakout cables.

The build quality on the SM is superior to the Norco cases.
Something like this: Just replace the power supply for noise and your good to go. You could also gut the whole thing.

Bad reviews are probably for the older version of Norco case. The one I bought Down Under about a year ago has upgraded backplane v2.0, 3 backplane fans (instead of four) and SSD disks holder. Can't complain.
Weird is, it's still nowhere mentioned that this is upgraded version. Even Norco's website says nothing.

Need a little help. I purchased one of these SGI Rackable Half Depth servers http://www.ebay.com/itm/SGI-Rackable...torefresh=true

It has a backplane that is a standard non-expander SAS backplane that has one SFF-8087 port for every four disks. 12 HDD Bays in total. The Motherboard, an Intel S5520HC, has 5 onboard SATA ports. I am currently using Mini-SAS (SFF-8087) to 4 SATA Cables to get at least 5 SATA drives loaded. I need a controller card to connect the other bays.

I have searched and only found this card that uses SATA ports and not SAS ports. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-070-_-Product Every other card I find uses Internal Mini-SAS ports and is expensive.

Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead but does anyone have the original power supply cages/distribution blocks that they would like to get rid of for a reasonable price?

For what case? If it's the AIC, I have two sets. What would you consider a reasonable price?
