Here are a few cases, ranging from a HTPC box from Silverstone, to Yeou Chih's classically designed server box. First have a look at Antec's Aria case, and see if it might just be a new look you want for your PC. Just look, don't spill your coffee on it!
"The optical drive bay is stealthed and it uses a system that we have seen with the AOpen and Soltek cubes where an external button on the case itself presses against the CDROM eject button. This is system is not perfect however as we have found that some CDROMs do not have the buttons in the same place and therefore, the external button does not trigger the door. Antec however, designed around this problem by making the stealthed door removable; those with optical drives with funny buttons will be able to access the button directly. With a black optical drive, the front panel does not look too off, but those with beige ones may want to think about replacing it. A huge fan that serves both as the exhaust for the powersupply and the inside of the case is found on the back of the Aria. The power supply does not have a kill switch like most regular power supplies."
