The TT armor is a huge case, no temp display

Not sure about teh size but a lot of people have this case

Oh yeah let me remind you to not use their psu

Most aspire cases are nice and flashy with a side window and a crappy psu. They also usually have temp displays

I think the case I have X-blade could work for you. It has an temperature panel, room for 5 optical drives, floppy mount and 5 hard drives with a good amount of fans for cooling. If you plan on putting in a floppy and display in a 3.5" drive then that wont work but otherwise a great case.

What is it? I can't find it anywhere. By the way, I like the cases!

If you were asking in reference to not finding the X-blade, here's a picture:



It's a great looking case and the build quality is awesome but the PSU that comes with it is terrible.

I like how your primary optical drive is accessible without opening the door (assuming that is an optical drive slot up there).

traditionally an LCD goes there but it has clearance for an optical and looking into the case, there are mounting holes that high up so it would be fair to say you can put one there.

Aspire X-Plorer (My case)

Looks even better in person, very clean look.
