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.

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

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!

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!
