    You could try these. Don't know if they would just sell the cases though. Could always ask...

    Actually, I found an add the other day (think it might even have been on EduGeek) for Dell's OEM rackmount server - they'll ship a whole rackmount server (the CR100, I think) for you, complete with your software. You don't ever need to see any hardware. Starts around the £500 for a 1U unit, I think. Might be appropriate.

    If you want to host ITX servers, these would suit: LinITX.com - Rackmount Chassis

    Had a friend who used Racksurf a year ago I think it was and said they were fine, but I will state that it was a friend that used them not me!

    the case I got was fine, nice solid build. At 2U, it was a little hard to build in, but its been working fine.

    Ordered about three from this company personally. Seem alright. It turns up, they are cheap (for a 1u case). They do the job. Not the best. I like supermicro more, but for the price, they can't be bet.
