    good mid tower case options that still rock optical drive slot in 2019?

    I just bought a Corsair 750D air so I could have some optical drive bays. got a zillion cd's dvds to rip yet. plus tons of software going back to the 90s that need an optical drive. also used one of the bays for a memory card reader usb3.2 thingy.
