Check Power System Enclosures and expansion units, you should be able to daisy chain.
We use combination of 5887, 5886, 5913, great performance.
We avoid the CEC, poor performance and no longer hot swappable.

Subject: card placement
Due to some miscommunication, of which a good part lays at my feet, I am trying to figure out how to hook up a 5886 that was shipped to me. I've discovered that I cannot daisy chain it off of my existing 5886 since the existing one is hooked up to the CEC on my 8203-E4A. Looks like I will need a new card(s). The vendor quickly suggested a 5901. I looked that up and it doesn't look like it has any cache and doesn't support raid. I suspect the vendor fancies themself a speed reader and noticed the 3 slots on the CEC and ignored the rest and found a card that should fit.
Multi partition system.
Slots available include:
0588: slots 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 15
0595(1): slots 8
0595(2): slots 3, 4, 7, 8,
0595(3): slots 2, 3, 4, 8 ( slot 1 is a raid controller used by a Linux
U789C: slots 1, 2, 3
Other lpars in this box are using combos like 572F/575C (CEC slots 4+5) or 571E/574F (0595 slots 1+2)
We are looking at replacing this whole rack with Power 7 hardware 4Q or 1Q.
