    I do really want to keep something similar in style because it will have to go on top of the desk. The machine is partially for use as a backup anyway, so at any point everything should be on at least one other computer on the network. Anything truly important is on Dropbox anyway.
    The one I tried to use was this one.

    It's bloody gigantic and not that pretty looking (and it ran hot).

    What did you put in it? was it a server build or a htpc?
    I still quite like the look of my original one, if I can use the 5.25" bays for extra HDDs if required I may still go with with that.
