    I hadn't seen a WHS Fractal Case before. There is one on E-Bay for
    a premium price if anyone wants one?

    Hes asking $875 BIN + $70 S+H which is insane. The same used hardware can be had for about $375-$400 max. Leaving over $300 for a case?

    For $875 I'll sell ya my SB setup and I'll throw in free shipping.

    I ended up using the Fractel R3 case and i'm glad I did. Its a not exactly a "home server" size, but there plenty of room inside... up to 8 drives internally, plus 2 external drives.

    8 HDD's isn't "home server" sized? That's 24 TB! Perhaps by that you meant it physically large and not a SFF?
