Any mini ITX case with 5 bays

Post by MattRowen » Mon Oct 15, 2018 7:27 am

I am looking for a mini itx case which has 5 drive bays? I am looking for the 1 x 2.5" and 4 x 3.5". I have already seen the Chenbro ES34069 but I cannot afford its high price.

I want the smallest case possible that will at least fit four 3.5" drives with an intel atom based ITX board.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to SPCR

Inwin Development IW-MS04-01-S265 its a 4 slot, you might be able to fit a 2.5 ssd on the optical drive using a caddy, like Highfine Universal 9.5mm SATA to SATA 2nd SSD HDD Hard Drive Caddy Adapter Tray Enclosures for DELL HP Lenovo ThinkPad ACER Gateway ASUS Sony Samsung MSI Laptop (crosscheck this).

Another option, Supermicro Superchassis CSE-721TQ-250B Mini-Tower with 250W Power Supply, probably the optical might fit the 2.5.

Now on pure cases for you to use your own mobo, check Fractal design Node 304 nets you 6x3.5/2.5 slots, that will have a couple of fans on front, not as small but not that big either. Lian Li PC-Q25B might be worth checking.
