Looking to replace my old rig's chassis

Hi guys, I'm coming to terms I need to replace the chassis on my old rig because it's a pain to maintain.

 

I'm looking for a chassis to support an ATX motherboard with two graphics cards, three 3.5 hard drives and a 2.5 SSD, at least two optical disk drives.

 

I'm overclocking, so airflow is important.

 

Not required but I have preference for a side panel (it makes me clean the dust more often).

 

Thanks in advance for all the help.

I checked the local PC store and found this one they still had on stock. Reviews seemed ok, so I think I'm going to give it a chance.

 

They also had a Cooler Master MasterBox 5, but it only supports two 3.5 hard drives. I fell in love with the TD500 and MB500 but no disc drives 😢

Barely any cases these days come with one ODD bay, let alone two. In most instances, you'l have to look at older cases like the one you posted in order to find 2 HDD bays
