Does anyone know of some good 2u rackmount servers out there, ones with
8 removable bays and SATAII/NCQ ability and at least a 500watt psu (for
Xeon Woodcrest)?

Here are the two I was considering.. I'm hoping the SuperMicro will
take an Asus DSBV-D motherboard, though they state they only support
SuperMicro boards officially...

Both models support NCQ, though the supermicro takes low profile cards,
while the Rackmountpro one only does a riser with a mere 3 slots
available (plus $70 for riser and $40 for the rail kit)...

I'm starting to think the Supermicro is the better bet, though we have
used the other brand in the past with great success.

Here they are:


Thoughts on these or other brands I may not have considered?

They have to have the 8 removable SATAII/ncq bays though.
