    actually, 2 cases
    one as my server and one for gaming/everything else

    one's gotta have ability to load 16 hard drives the other at least 2 hdd and 2 cd

    both PSU need to be QUIET and powerfull - this is a MUST HAVE as both will be in the livingroom

    i don't care so much about windows, etc, but cooling has to be there esp. on the one with 16 drives

    cost? undecided. i'll see what comes up and go from there

    size? don't care so much as long as it's not much wider than a standard box
    i.e., no server cubes

    color? black. others considered so long as it compliments light maple wood furniture

    asking OT'ers since my googling comes up with too many choices :dunno:

    antec sonata for the desktop. About $100 w/psu.

    coolermaster cmstacker for the server. About $150 w/o psu. Add an enermax whisper-series for the server's PSU. (about $80-140)

    i should add that both would need to be the same size, and that 2nd one looks real nice

    www.google.com

    If they both have to be the same size, then just get two CMStackers... Or get a CMStacker and an Antec TX1050B.

    use these: http://www.sundialmicro.com/cooler_master_4in3_device_1712_146.html

    They fit a 120mm fan, and 4 hard drives in 3x5.25" bays. You have 12 bays, for a total of 4 cages, for a total of 16 drives. I own this case.
