I bought a used HP DL180g6 a couple years ago, 12 x 3.5" on the front 
panel, and 2 more in back, came with all 14 HP trays, dual X5650.   its 
a personal/charity server sitting at a coloc here in town.   I have 
several of the same model server at work with 25 x 2.5" drives (and 
x5660 and more ram), they are workhorses.
