This is a "drop-in" bracket (requires zero modifications to the case) to mount 7x GPUs and 3x 120mm fans at the front of the deep (25-inch) Rosewill server cases.

This latest revision (version 4) supports all of the USB riser PCB widths.
 
Features include:

As of October 2021, the lead time is ~2 business days.

$80, plus shipping from Washington state (1-2 fit in a medium size flat rate box).  PayPal only.

I think that link you have is for the ATX model but you state that you need to EATX chassis.  Will the ATX one work?

Yikes!  No, the extra depth of the EATX model is required!

Been thinking along these lines with a 4u chassis for months after buying an 18u server rack.  Can someone chime in on how loud this setup is?  As always nice work!

This entirely depends on what fans you use.  The GPU fans are very quiet but the stock fans in the rosewill may not be adequate for 7 gpus.  I highly recommend replacing with 3 x ultra Kaze 3000 rpm fans..   The noise level is not too bad as it's quieter than server fans but if you want really quiet then look for more expensive Noctua fans.  Think of it as white noise.  They are too loud for office but not bad for garage and no high pitch noise like Antminer S5 or S7.  Very nice white noises.  Box fans are louder than the Ultra kazes.

Thanks.  I guess my question more precisely was how well the enclosure muffled the hum of the gpus.

Note that I updated the link in the OP to Rosewill 4U Server Chassis / Server Case / Rackmount Case, Metal Rack Mount Computer Case support with 15 bays & 7 Fans Pre-Installed (RSV-L4500)

The incorrect link to the RSV-L4000 has 8 drive bays, but it only comes with two of the front fans and the power/reset/led/usb board is attached to the drive cage and not the side of the case like the 15 bay version (RSV-L4500).

You won't be able to hear the sound of the  gpus inside these cases unless you have super loud reference design gpus like AMD 290

Pretty damn neat, you can pick up cheap used servers but they are massive.

But doesn't that case work as well? What makes it a worse choice?

Only two front fans and USB is in the middle versus on the side.

I would like to buy one of the drop-in's. I PM'd Smiley
Also curious if you have found any difference in running reference (blower style) cards vs. the classic 3/2-fan cards as far as temperature and performance goes?

I would definitely recommend swapping out the stock fans with stronger fans.

A must, these things need more air to breath than fans made for non gpu servers.

Yes, you just need to let me know what version you want when ordering.   Grin

I'm no longer building the reversible version.

Does a version exist that supports both?

It could, but might be a few dollars more.
