The statement "lots of case fans" lets me think about our server (HP LC3). 
It has two enormous fans, which keeps the machine cool. But I wouldn't like 
to have this machine in my office, because it's quite noisy.

Otherwise, it would be a nice and very robust system, even though it's 
already a bit old (means slow) for a workstation.

Have you thought about a server-class machine? I'm pleased with HP.
