My i7 870 setup had 9 SATA ports on the board and I was a happy camper with 8 drives and a BD-Rom, upgraded to the i7 2600K and couldn't find any mobos within reasonable price with more than 8 ports, so I had to remove a drive.
It seems that every time I upgrade, I have to lose a drive, lol

My Q6600 setup had 9 Hard drives, 7 SATA and 2 IDE, and a BD Rom drive,
I like that case. I've got an IStar super-tower as my main rig. Huge, but nothing on that. Where can I get one? :)

Really makes putting together a rig and changing things fun when you have a big case.
Thing is, nowadays cooling isn't usually an issue, components last longer, and to keep on topic, SSD's are small footprint.
Things have really changed.
I still want a big, pretty case though. Must be in the blood.

that case is the yy-0221, I bought mine 8 years ago for $240. I think you can get them for around $150+ shipping at a few vendors now.
I traded the case last year for some wheels for my Silverado since I purchased the HAF-932. I bought an H60 hydro cooler and there was no easy way to use it with the yy-0221 so I swapped cases.

this is what it looks like with the front panel on and the door open,
