I recently needed to acquire an box with the same requirements... So on to Ebay ugh... and found:

These cases are well laid out and very quiet too. Got this with an offer of $80 per unit. plus $30 ship http://cgi.ebay.com/2U-Server-Case-Asus-KFSN4-DRE-SAS-AMD-2x-Opteron-2214-/130492425232?pt=COMP_EN_Servers&hash=item1e61f46410 <http://cgi.ebay.com/2U-Server-Case-Asus-KFSN4-DRE-SAS-AMD-2x-Opteron-2214-/130492425232?pt=COMP_EN_Servers&hash=item1e61f46410>

This is the 1.8Ghz Hex core it burns 40W and puts out no heat.. So you can safely use passive cooling. I got with an offer of $70 per unit. http://cgi.ebay.com/New-AMD-Opteron-2419-EE-Six-Core-1-8-Ghz-CPU-SKT-1207-/200575504776?pt=CPUs&hash=item2eb33b5188 <http://cgi.ebay.com/New-AMD-Opteron-2419-EE-Six-Core-1-8-Ghz-CPU-SKT-1207-/200575504776?pt=CPUs&hash=item2eb33b5188>

This is the like the lots of ram I bought.
http://cgi.ebay.com/16GB-4X4GB-DDR2-MEMORY-RAM-PC2-5300-ECC-REG-DIMM-/330515912349?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cf448969d <http://cgi.ebay.com/16GB-4X4GB-DDR2-MEMORY-RAM-PC2-5300-ECC-REG-DIMM-/330515912349?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cf448969d>

1 2u case with Asus KFSN4-DRE  $110 with shipping.
2 2x 2419 EE hex core                  $160
32Gb ddr2 667 ecc reg                  $580
So for little over a grand with drives you can have a solid used 12 core box.

So ... you replaced the 2214 CPUs and got the RAM much cheaper than the above RAM link?

Did you get fans with the 2419EE CPUs or did you re-use the fans from the 2214 units?
