Suggestions for a mid tower quiet case with room and optical drive slot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
EDIT:
Wanted to take 'with room' out of the title, won't let me.

I was looking strongly at the NZXT H440, and I love everything about it, but found out it has no optical drive slots, and that really sucks because I need at least one (for internal blu-ray writer). Then I looked at the define r4, that's still in consideration. I also looked at the nanoxia (dont know the model#) and saw it was locally at frys, but wasn't impressed with the build quality at all, the plastic top bent very easily and felt very cheap, but understandably given the price. So that one is out.
I am using a corsair 400D at the moment, I was also looking at the 550D, but haven't looked very deeply into that one yet.

Any other suggestions that I missed that I could consider? Build is in the sig, that's what will be going in the case.
Define R5

Hmmm Carbide Series 330R is one of the quieter cases. Check it out. It's basically like moving next door, since you can think of it as a more soundproofed version of the 400D. So super easy to switch.
