My friend Brian generously gives away a custom NAS box twice a year. Back in January, he built one using the U-NAS NSC-800 case. It is a very nice case, but the 1U power supply only attaches with two screws at the back of the case, and it was flopping around quite a bit in the case. He didn't want to ship it that way, so I designed a sleeve to slide onto the end of the PSU. This kept it in place quite nicely during shipping.
More recently, Brian decided to upgrade his own home NAS using the same server chassis. However, he decided to add a 10 Gigabit Ethernet card as well. That card was too big, so he couldn't use U-NAS's SSD brackets. I ended up adding a pair of mounts to the existing power supply bracket. Those mounts hold onto the corner of the two solid-state drives using friction.
The SSD brackets are working quite nicely, but it is a pretty tight squeeze in there, and it required some interesting gymnastics to get everything assembled. The U-NAS NSC-800 is a very nice case, but it is also extremely dense!
You can buy the bracket with or without the SSD mounts. The mounts are sized to hold 7mm Samsung EVO 850 SSDs. Other SSDs I had around the house fit well, too.
N.B. Samsung SSDs not included.
