Are there any cases that substitute the optical drive bays for fan mounts?

I hate tons of drive cages because I always end up using only one or two, and now I buy all my PC games through steam so I don't need any optical drives either. I'm looking for a case that will allow me to remove everything in the front so I can just have nothing but fans pulling in as much air as possible. Most cases make the optical drive bays unremovable.

I'm sure there's other cases, but the Silverstone Temjin series cases are constructed entirely with screws instead of welds or rivets. You'd be able to remove the cages in order to find a way to mount the fan. They're a bit pricey, though, some of the best for air cooled cases. Using a TJ11 myself.

You can with the Antec 900 (and likely others such as the 1200, 300, and the newer versions of the 900), but you might need to buy a fan mount. It includes two mounts, which takes three bays each, and the Antec 900 has a total of nine.

Fractal R4 lets you remove the upper 5 drive bays. (giving you 3 bays at the bottom + 2 SSD mounts on the back of the tray)

The front panel can house 2 120/140mm fans, the upper of which should be relatively unobstructed.

Great recommendations guys. I'll definitely be considering one of these.
