The rules are in the VC setup and install guide http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01732252/c01732252.pdf and in the stacking whitepaper http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02102153/c02102153.pdf

You will not be able to stack these 3 enclosures together (different FlexFabric and VC-FC module configuration).

You *might* be able to stack the last 2 together if and only if the 8Gb VC-FC modules in the second enclosure are the 20-port model, not the 24-port.
