Talking M-ATX Case for home server with lots of hard drives

I built a home server this summer with some spare parts, but I feel like the m-atx board in a mid-sized case is not really optimal. However, I currently have 3 hard drives in it and will add at least 1 more in the future and most mini cases only hold around 2 drives.

Does anyone know an m-atx case that still has room for 4 hard drives?

Lian Li PC-V354. It can hold 7 internal drives with a M-ATX board.

Have you already bought an mATX board for use in this project? If not, you may consider getting an ITX one and then getting the Fractal design Array.
