A friend of mine gave me the case of an old HP Gen8 Microserver, chassis only without the board or power supply. Since the HDD cage has no real backplane but a SAS (SFF-8087) Plug directly attached to the HDD Slots and I didn’t have SAS controller at that time, the case wasn’t useful for me.

Cause I want to install 19” rackmountable hardware only at home I finally decided to do something useful with that crappy HP case and reused it for the first plant in my new apartment :-)
