Downgrading my big ATX case down to a Mini ITX. And I was planning on re-using a Node 304 case but I was wondering if there are any smaller cases that can maybe house four to six 2.5" SSDs or HDDs (since most Mini ITX mobos have 4-6 SATA headers). This PC acts as a router/server so no graphics card, just a PCI-e card for additional Ethernet ports, and single core i3 (dual core model, one core disabled).
Any alternatives? I'm looking for a really small RAID-like enclosure that can run FreeBSD for router tasks and ZFS.
You can use 3.5" to 2.5" brackets, several of them fit two 2.5" drives in a single 3.5" bay, so if you could find a case with 2-3 3.5" drives that'd work. Or possibly a 5.25 bracket as well that fits 4 though I'm not sure of super cheap ones.
