I've bought a lot of their stuff over the years, and unless it's a situation where there is no clear standard (eg: redundant power in a 1U case) nothing really comes to mind of a situation where I've seen "non-standard" parts with them.

I think that's because they are the de facto OEM manufacturer of so much of the "standard" stuff on the market for so many brands, they'd rather just slap their own label on it and go to market, rather than customizing it.
