Looking For Modular Computer Case With Plenty of 5.25" Drive Bays

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The title is self-explanatory. I'm looking for a modular computer case with a lot of room for cable management and a lot of 5.25" drive bays. I have an Antec P180 and I love the amount of drive bays on it, but I kind of wish I had more. For me, 5.25" drive bays means more expansion capability (and I understand that it's not ALL about these bays).

P.S: I don't fancy glass windows in my PC. I just want a nice, versatile case.

To go along with the styling of the Antec P180, I say the Lian Li PC-A76 would be a nice step up.

If you want to max out the amount of 3.5" HDDs you have then grab this Lian-Li:

with this IcyDock bay or similar: http://www.icydock.com/goods.php?id=155

You'd have at least space for 20 HDDs.


Lian-Li also sells a lot of extra parts, so, almost like a CaseLab's case, you can mod it much easier.

Oh yeah, now that you mention, even the Carbide 330R would be a good fit. It's quite understated and elegant and still an upgrade.
