Rack-mount ATX Factor Case.
Any appropriate “Rack-mount” ATX form factor case that has at least three exposed 5.25″ bays and two 3.5″ bays. [Typically a 19″ 4 UNIT high rackmount chassis] Check that it will allow for at *LEAST* 2 “full length PCI” cards to be installed!

At Least 30 Amps to combined +5/+3.3V. It is suggested that generally cases be sourced without PSU’s and that separately qualified PSU’s be used. A 300 WATT ATX PSU with an external “hardware override” ON/OFF switch is best. Check the PSU specs: It should be capable of supplying at least 30 Amps to combined +5/+3.3V. “PC Power & Cooling” and “HIPOT” are example vendors of such PSU’s.

At least one extra case exhaust fan is recommended. [in addition to the exhaust fan provided by the PSU–if mechanically possible dual “extra” exhaust fans are recommended] “Three wire calibrated” case fans that are designed to be connected to the motherboard CHASSIS_FAN connectors are suggested.
