i'm currently shopping around for a case for a home theatre pc build. if anyone has any suggestions/recommendations, please share!

as for features, i'm not too picky yet. it should hold at least 2hds, atx/uatx doesn't matter, however...style is a factor.

my first question is,

...why does it have a "limit" of 4.5tb listed? i mean, we can get 2tb drives pretty cheap. what if i wanted to put 12tb worth of hds in that case?

Hello,

Sorry, I really don't have recommendations for a device like this, but...

...why does it have a "limit" of 4.5tb listed? i mean, we can get 2tb drives pretty cheap. what if i wanted to put 12tb worth of hds in that case?

I would think these questions are better suited to be answered by the manufactures of this device. Try emailing them.

I would think that as long as it supports six drives, you can put 12TB in using 2TB drives, but as makai mentioned it might be best to ask their support why that wording was put there...

As for a recommendation, I have to admit I like some of the Thermaltake options as they come with a front mounted screen. Check this one out: http://www.thermalta...1BNS/DH102.aspx

Cheers
