Need a new case.
I am in need of a new case possibly, looking for your guys' feedback on what to get. Keep in mind that I am quite partial to Thermaltake (have a V3 right now love it!)

I am looking for the following in the case:
Minimum of 5 3.25" bays.
Media center-ish style.

Other than that I really don't care.

DId you mean 3 5.25" bays or 5 3.5" bays?

As far as I know there are no such thing as 3.25" bays. :P

Sorry I mean 3.5" bays.

Pabz0r545 October 26, 2012 06:23 AM

How many 5.25" bays does your case require? Not many cases with 3 3.5" drive bays but you can always use a 3.5" to 5.25" adapter.

I have 6 physical drives in my machine, they all need to fit, plus my dvd drive so it can be 3 of one and 4 of the other or whatever.

Oh ok I thought you wanted them all to be accessible from the front for mini fan controllers and stuff. I'll post back shortly :P.

haha no, my machine doesn't get all that overly warm :P

Do you have a budget limit?

Elite October 26, 2012 07:31 AM

Well I would prefer to not spend like 800 bucks lol

Also if I could find the right receiver I wouldn't be opposed to gutting it and trying to mod it somehow :P
