I've seen the official supermicro chassis (with MB). It's quite cool, with
special air inlets etc. Since the MB has a 64bit PCI slot in the position
where the riser card should come, one needs a chassis that supports a 64
bit riser card. I'd suggest that if you are ready to spend $$ on the
supermicro motherboard that you also get their chassis. Of course there
are alternatives in 1U (not many though...)

I decided for a 2U solution with cheaper MB.

Groeten, David.
