BTW, regarding E450s, I have a few of the 8 slot backplanes for these
critters.... I don't have controllers or cables... but it's just
SCSI so that shouldn't be an issue for anyone.
If anyone is interested in any of these make an offer...

They are quite heavy boxes - totally over engineered for their intended purpose
