Preferably one without a power supply, or ... literally anything inside. I just want the case.
Honestly, a busted up, broken router or broken switch would probably work too.

I'm wanting to build a rack mounted, Raspberry Pi Cluster/Pi-NAS.
Not sure if it needs to be 1U, or 2U. I *THINK* you can fit 3.5 HDs in a 1U, side by side.

I want to be able to fit, 3-4 Raspberry Pis into it, and two 3.5mm Drives, and a fan or two.

I'd rather buy used, because I really don't want to spend a bunch of money on something that is essentially just a sort of hobby project for me.
If I can find one for dirt dirt cheap, or even free.... I'd appreciate any help :)

I got rid of my extras a little while ago unfortunately.

Supermicro usually has cheap used chassis for sale, but you get what you pay for.

You should be able to fit what you mentioned, but it might get tight. Those short chassis really don't have too much room.

I suggest using a regular PC case if you can get by without the rack mounting, but I understand wanting it as well
