Server Rack

I'm looking for server rack cases that I can use to convert midi-tower servers into racks for remote co-location hosting, e.g 1U, 2U, 3U form factor. It's recommended to buy a pre-built bare-bone or complete server to ensure good airflow and stability. Build-it-yourself cases usually cut corners in order to make it compatible with all the motherboard variations out there.
