I hope you can point me in the right direction. I am looking for a PC case (Full tower) that has as many free external 5.25 drivebays as possible. I need a good size power supply too. The last thing is that I don't want it too gamey looking as it is for business use. Also does anyone know a good PC building company that could take the case and build a lowish spec machine. We add our own hardware in to the PC case hence the need for a lot of room. If you want to know what we do our website is www.tts-ltd.co.uk. Thanks for your help
Any word on the budget.? Take a look at the cooler master ATCS 840 and the corsair obsidian 800D.. I think the cooler master cosmos s should fit your requirements but you may find the look too flamboyant..
Also guys note that the website he linked to is in the UK so I'm guessing that he is as well.

Thanks very much for all your help. Budget is open as the rest of the spec is quite low, no need for huge horsepower in either the processor or graphics. I am happy to spend to get the right looking case. That ATCS 840 looks good. We also have to bolt a large box to the side full of connections and that case looks to have the space as there is no side fan. I'll give overclockers uk a ring. Thanks everyone.
The reason for so many is that we make a control box that sits in a 5.25 drive bay. The control box moves hydraulic actuators in either load or displacement feedback. It is in essence a PID controller with amplifiers. The actuators are a much quicker responding (and vastly more expensive!) type that you see on diggers etc. With our controllers we can move them to within 1/100mm or +/-2N. They are used for testing cars,planes anything that needs loading or moving. We can get two channels (ie move two hydraulic actuators) in one 5.25 bay. We currently have the need for 8 channels of control so 4 empty drive bays. By the time we have added DVD drive and possible analog in cards we don't have much room left.
