build your own out of your flesh...just cut a hole in your stomach, mail me the residing contents...and just start shoving parts inside of you. use your veins as tubes, and use your blood as the coolant...


what...

im not crazy...

Check out some of those over at Tiger.

That got the Thermaltake ones and the coolermaster ones are decent for 60bucks.

I was gonna recommend my HTPC case. It is a standard Rosewill with 6- 3.5" drive bays one on top of the other with a spot for a 120mm fan in the front. It is very well ventilated too. The whole front was mesh. I had got it for $30 with a cheapy 350w PSU, but it's discontinued now.

Yeah I was going to say Cooler Master probably has the right thing for you.

20 bucks after rebate is not bad

i wanted 6 hdd bays, but 5 will do

I've heard that Cooler Master rebates will take ages to get back to you if at all. So be careful.

thats the case i bought, good case for a server/media. just one complaint they could make a bit more room on the back side where the sata cables are, it was quite tight in there.
