Re: [vox-tech] Computer case for lots of drives...

PC Power & Cooling used to have a Monster Case that handled 2 motherboards and quite a few drives. I didn't see it on http://www.pcpowerandcooling.com/home.htm ... maybe there's one on eBay. The case used to weigh > 100 pounds if I remember correctly (steel case).

Hi all,

I'm looking for a computer case that can hold a lot of hard drives
(say 20 or so)... and a motherboard.

  What I have in mind is something that is wide enough to hold 2 columns
of 3.5" drives, and give them at least 1/2" of clearance between drives,
multiple large fans mounted mounted in front of the case to push air
across the drives...
  The case should be able to hold a motherboard and power supply and
needs one or two 5.25" external bays...

Hot-swap and rack mountable is not a concern.  Price is

- Has anyone seen something like this?  Who makes them?

- Favorite sites to look at cases online, for this sort of thing?
