I am exploring options for a network attached storage system, but I want to have full control over the hardware, so a prepackaged system is not a viable solution.
Size is not a significant concern, but I have access to free Intel NUC units, so I'd like to make use of one (the specific model is something I can pick at the time I decide to get it). There are mini-PCIe RAID controllers like this Syba unit that I can use to connect a couple drives.
What I can't seem to find is a chassis that can accept a NUC board but has space for two (or even better, three, because the NUC has it's own SATA port) 2.5" or 3.5" drives. Every chassis I've seen only fits one 2.5" drive.
