I am looking to build a dual CPU workstation with a "long" graphics adapter and eight or more 3.5 inch drives. The problem is finding a chassis. Last time, I had to build a case out of wood to fit a BTX board (Intel) with all my drives simply because there were no large enough cases to be found. I would like to avoid a home made case this time for convenience.
As far as I can understand, a motherboard of the Pedestal form factor will not fit into a standard desktop ATX computer case. Intel does sell several entry level Server Chassis, but neither of them support more than six drives and I don't have the money or space to get a rack chassis.
This may be a borderline question (shopping advice), but are there any well-designed large cases out there that would fit a Pedestal server board, a large graphics card and six kilos worth of hard drives?
Perhaps I should rephrase. Are desktop-style computer case for the Pedestal motherboard at all common?
