    New full tower case

    Hey everyone, I am looking to get myself a new full tower case for my old PC and turn it into a server. It has to have loads of slots for hard drives/good cooling/and as silent as possible. Any recommendations?

    I use a HAF 932, it has 5 x internal 3.5" bays, 6 x 5.25" bays and will take E-ATX / ATX / Micro ATX / Mini-ITX mobos.

    It comes with 3 - 230mm 700rpm (intake front and side, exhaust top) and 1 - 140mm fan (exhaust rear, can't remember the speed) all pretty quiet.
    Loads of space, wheels if you want to use them, good space behind the mobo for cable management.

    I'm very happy with mine, especially as it is also built with watercooling in mind (triple rad fits up top with no modding, and I'm putting in a double rad on the bottom with some slight modding and the loss of 1 intenal 3.5" bay)

    You can also fit a huge ventirad on the cpu as well, before going to WC I had a Noctua NH-C14 in there.

    if you want a quiet one you can try fractial design ( big tower ) , it have 10 hdd trays, 4 dvd trays.
    its noice dampened and fans runs around 600rpm ( 140 and 120 fans ).

    it cost's a bit, but you deside.

    Thanks for all the replies. The Fractial case looks nice, I might go for that one.

    CM HAF-X
    CM Storm Trooper
    Aerocool X-Predator
    NZXT Phantom

    Those are Currently the best full towers in the market

    PS : the more heavier the case is the better futures it contain but that gonna suck during shipping coz it cost a lot to ship those titans
