Me too, but it's a bit expensive compared to the HAF912. I also have a dual-bay 5.25" to 3x 3.5" rack so I have a total of 10 drives in mine (able to hold 1 more!). Up to the OP to decide if he wants to spend more or not I guess.

My server pulls 127W from the wall under typical load. Granted I'm running Hyper-V as well though. I have the following specs:
  • Intel Core i5 2500K
  • Gigabyte GT210
  • LSI 9211-4i (SAS/RAID card)
  • Dual Intel Gigbit CT NICs
  • 4x Samsung F3 1TB (7200RPM)
  • 2x Samsung F4 2TB (~5900RPM, “eco” drive)
  • 2x Western Digital Black 640GB (7200RPM)
  • 2x Samsung F3 500GB (7200RPM)
  • Seasonic S12II 520W (80+ bronze certified)
