Hi,

I'm building a energy saving NAS/HTPC using Atom and NVidia ION board.
As I want a Raid1 with 2 HDs and the OS on a different drive, I would need at least 3 slots for 3.5" hard drives.
I found the Antec NSK 1380, but besides that I couldn't find other casings.
Are you aware of any other small, nice looking and maybe silent cases with that configuration for use with an mini-itx board?


Best,

Well, the NSK 1380 isn't really that small, being Micro ATX, and the Lian-Li V351 is only a hair bigger (but holds a full-sized power supply). But both of those only hold two 3.5" drives, unless you use the 5.25" bay as well. You could also get the InWin BP655 for $40 to support the same number of drives in even less space.
