Micro-Atx Server Case Suggestions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I would like to change the case my server is housed in. Currently I am using an Azza Helios 910.

A few things I would like in the new case:

-Micro-Atx Mini-Tower
-Holds at least 5 hard drives.
-Budget is about $100

I have been considering-

Fractal Core 1000

Fractal Design Arc Mini

Fractal Design Mini Black

Silverstone SST-PS07B

Silverstone TJ08B-E

Any other suggestions?

Thanks for the help.
-Kevin

Silverstone SST gets my vote.

It looks like a server and fits exactly for what you've asked.

But it doesn't have room for extra drives beyond 5 without adding in some sort of drive cages into the 5.25" bays.

That was my only concern. I am at 4 drives and will be expanding. The fractal holds 6 which would be beneficial.
