I found one: AMEI CASE AM-C2001WB http://www.ameitec.com/en/products/am-c2001
It is about 4" x 12" x 16" so not exactly small but it is a flatter
alternative to the rather bulky 7" cubes.
With a 5.25"-> 4x2.5" drive bay adaptor you can fit in 4 drives
exchangeable from the outside. It can take a microATX board and PSU
and low-profile PCI cards which should give plenty of options for
off-the shelf components.
I have not seen the case in real, though.
