    Wanted Computer Case

    Hi,

    Has anyone got any spare/unwanted computer cases for sale/free? I need a case that can hold a minimum of eight 3.5" HDDs for my UnRAID server.

    My graphics card is too big for my case... Doh!

    Thanks guys!

    I have one where i was given some donor parts from NZXT red thing - I've no idea how good it is or if any of the multiple fans work though. Was going to skip it tbh.

    2 Thanks given to Scal

    Have an old Chieftech Dragon case that I imagine you could rig up a bunch of HDD's in. Depends on where you live because the Dragon cases weigh as much as a small elephant and that's when empty. The days of taking that bastard to LAN parties were a dark time in my life haha...

    I wouldn't want anything for it.

    Flashback! I had this case years ago...

    I don't think this will fit my requirement and it doesn't have 5.25 days all the way down?

    Thought you said eight 3.5" bays



    Anyway, no probs. It's been sat lurking around in a corner for eons now haha. It was a fantastic case for the time but lugging that bastard around was a pain in the ass. Thank god for the good old "Gear Grip" carry harness at the time. Made life a lot easier.

    I've got a 6 bay case going spare, if you use adaptors for the 2 top drive bays, that will bring it up to 8.

    I think your going to struggle getting a 12 bay case that's ATX format. Are all your drives HHD or are some of them SSD?

    That URL i pasted says:

    vast space to encompass 7 hard drives, and five 5.25" bays enable smooth customization. Establish your power, your presence.
