Good Mini/Micro ATX case with HDD storage

I am looking at building a mini itx/file server build for my photowork. Have 3-4 3.5" Drives that I will need to mount in the smallest case possible.

I want just a simple i3-2100 build and am trying to find a good box to put it in.

What is out there that is good?

Like the silverstone sg-05 but think I need more room. Reasons for being small are least amount of power used possible, and having ontop of a desk instead of on the floor.

  1. That looks really good. Any other suggestions?

    These will all be 2tb WD Green Drives. Is there any way to hook up more than 4 Hard Drives to motherboards with only 4 ports?

    Looking at using this as the main board. http://ncix.com/products/?sku=60025
  2. You could try to find one of these Asus U3S6 True USB 3.0 & True SATA 6Gb/s

    Supply has vanished for some reason.

  3. Yeah I buy from Canada Computers and the PM Direct Canada.

    Also that Asus link is just to USB 3. I think what I am looking for is an internal switch or something as I will have all the HDs internally. Will probably have 1x SSD for OS then 4-5 2TB Greens for my server. Thanks for the help so far!
  4. Yes! the same way i purchase!
    That Asus card has 2 sata 6Gb ports on it too dude.
    It retailed for under $40.
    My local Canada Computers had them as recently as 6 months ago when i was looking at them again.
    I was going to get one a year ago thinking USB 3.0 was going to be useful lol!
