8500... the 8500 shared the same case basically as the 8100.  Nicknamed 
the fridge it was one of the most difficult mini-tower cases to work 
with.  After taking apart many of these I'm quite quick at it so I no 
longer mind. (kind of like those guys who break down and re-assemble 
guns really quickly)

The 8600 and 9600 came in basically the same case... the one that was 
shortened height-wise for the grey G3. (actually I'm not looking at 
refs right now but I believe the 8600 was the short case and the 9600 
the tall one)

the 7600 came in the Desktop G3 case.... also easy to get into.  
Whoever designed the cases around that time was pretty good at 
engineering... they were really nice functionally... and pretty to boot.
