Mini Tower PC Case Required
I'm requiring a PC case for a project. I'm building a test rig and I need a case that will spend all its life in bits - that is with the covers off - whilst being used.
It needs to have a sturdy metal frame and easy access to the psu, mobo area and drive bays, ideally utilising hdd caddies for quick connection / removal. I'll be using sata drives.
Has anyone got any recommendations?

tried dedicated bench PC cases?
Tech Station Computer Case Test Bench: HighSpeed PC - water cooling specialists
Or for a bit more style
Antec Mini-Skeleton mITX Performance Chassis - Black/Silver (90w PSU)  Cases Antec
Helped a friend of mine actually build one from scratch - 2 sheets of mdf on metal supports, with a raised bar on the back for expansion cards, and spacers to stop HDD's flying around yet still keeping them easy to get to etc. Spent about a total of £25 on materials and a day's graft/beer/laughing about

Thanks for the links - and I'm quite taken with the idea now of building my own especially as I'll be able to customise some of the features. Who knows might end up selling a few on Edugeek!

Certainly gives you a hell of a feeling of satisfaction too
