Doesn't ahve to be a full tower, but many chieftec/Antec models have
drive cages (3x3.5") which have 80mm brackets for case fans in the
front, specifically to blow air across the drives.
I'll be building a similar array soon (LSI Megaraid 150-6, 5-6x 250Gig
Hitachi Satas) so I'm interested to know your mileage :)
