Any great flaws with this list? $715 +/-
I have power supplies, this case has 8 hot-swap bays :crazy: And the motherboard has 8 Sata 6GB plugs.

Nice but I would say two things:

MB cheaper at NewEgg, I think $154

IMO to much for the case. If it is for a headless server, it is almost a build, put it somewhere and never touch it. I did the same, spent way to much for my case, has Hot Swap, which I never use. Has a small footprint, like the HP MSS, but now I can only have 4 internal drives. Will be ok when the 4 TB drives arrive. I think a cheaper case which would hold more drives is a better investment.

THX, this list is from Newegg.
I totally agree with the price on that case, ouch, and it doesn't even come with a power supply. I may have to do somemore lookin.
My thinking is the (2) 4 bay hot swaps are worth about half the case price and I do like to play with the drives.
Thx again for the feedback.

I am working on a new rig using the Norco RPC-450B. It has 11 internal bays for HDD and only $80.

If it had hotswap, I would consider a rack mount. And really, when I think about it, how often do I pull a drive. I just have a hot swap thing I guess.
11 bays would be cool with a PCI-e sata card. Mass storage for sure. :D

I thought the same thing. I have an internal HDD cage with 5 hot swap bays and i have not pulled a drive out yet. I bought the the 450B because it has enough bays and the price was right. I though about the one with 20 hot swap but I can justify the price.
