Case = $70
3-to-5 Backplane Adapter = ~$100/ea * 2 = $200
2-to-3 Backplane Adapter = ~$60
NORCO RPC-4020 4U Rackmount Server Case = $290
and it can hold 20 harddrives with hot-swap.
NORCO RPC-470 Black 4U Rackmount Server Case = $75
it can hold 11x3.5 and 3x5.25 (so all 12 plus DVD drive and system drive)
Then the problem is I'd need to find SATA controller cards for all the
drives, though that may end up entailing buying a new motherboard too,
the current one has 4xSATA on board, and two free PCI slots.
In the end this idea is looking to become a very expensive proposition
without going with external firewire/usb enclosures.
