Looking for a desktop with extendable 3.5 SATA slots


I am looking for a desktop tower for every day normal use (internet etc). I need motherboard to have at least three (3+) SATA slots for 3.5 HDD and one (1) SATA slot for optical drive. Do you have any recommendation? Thanks

    The Powerspec B686 is a good fit for you. You'll see it on our website. The motherboard in that computer has 4 Sata Slots.

    B686 wouldn't work for exactly what you're describing. It has the SATA ports, but it doesn't have the 3.5" or 5.25" bays. Even our larger cases have 2x3.5" bays and 5.25" bays on a case are a rarity these days. You can certainly find a large chassis that'll support a ton of drives. Something like the Corsair 7000D. There also alternatives. External DVDRW's rather than the 5.25" bay. Also, you can get 4 bay external enclosures for all your 3.5" drives.
