IBM x3500M4 backplane 94Y5978 as a mobile rack in any other casing?

Has anyone had experience with IBM component in this case the 2.5" SAS HDD backplane 94Y5978 to be used in other non-IBM casing, say coolermaster. On x3500M4 which 94Y5978 belongs to, the photo in its "red book" seemed to show 94Y5978 fits right into a few slots of 5.25" bays. Fitting this backplane is one thing, the other concern is whether it can take standard SAS cable.

The reason for me to investigate this option is because IBM 94Y5978 backplane is one of the very few options in the market right now to support SATA/SAS 6Gbps.

I'll be most grateful if anyone can shine a light on this matter. Thank you.
