Trying to find a 6+ external bay server case

I need a new file server case, but I dont know where to find a good one at, fry's had a 5 bay one, but it was one of those decepticon cases. Why 6 bays? I need 5 hard drive bay coolers and room for a dvdrom drive.

Thanks.

does it have to be new? i know a guy with a HUGE case, that i believe is atx FF.

i bet he'd let go of it cheap.
i want to say it has 6 or 7 external 5.25 bays.

Yes it needs to be new, I dont want to have ghetto old equipment around.

I might be able to pull it off with 4x 250gb drives instead of 5x 200gb drives and use a 5bay case. I think thats a better option seeing as I can find plenty of 5 bay cases for around $40 that look nice.

I'm kind of partial to this rolling server case, should store my 1.2TB drive needs nicely, I still have to buy the individual drive bay coolers, I dont want to lose any drives to heat. $62.50 + $20 in shipping.

I'm surprised you found one that nice for $80. Looks like a good deal to me.
