Hi Everyone.

I've been looking around for an enclosure for my drivers/PSUs etc. I'd looked at all the electrical stores and the prices were outrageous. I thin thought "what about a tower/server case?".

Found this (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SUN-MICROSYSTEMS-LARGE-PC-SERVER-TOWER-CASE-w-PSU_W0QQitemZ250287330218QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item2 50287330218&_trkparms=72%3A985%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C2 40%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14) on ebay

Made an offer of 17 quid and it was accepted (33 quid inc delivery)!

The quality is amazing as you would expect with a Sun Micro case, it is a tool-less design, ie you can get inside quickly. It comes with a serious PSU but that is probably just junk to us but the REALLY NICE THING is it comes with 3 120mm 12v fans in a removable rack which blow straight onto your electronics, they are worth the purchase price alone. There is tons of space inside. I have two MCP PSU's, three Drives and my Breakout board and Smoothstepper inside and there is still bags of space.In fact I have drilled mounts on my backboard for a 4th axis :D

If you are looking for an enclosure, give this one a serious look.

Delivery was fast too, only two days from paying to it arriving here.
