The define 7 XL / Meshify 2 XL holds 19 (20 if you ballsy) x 3.5 and 5 x 2.5 drives.

As big as the obsidian 1000D is it only holds 5 x 3.5 and 6 x 2.5 according to Corsair

Any desktop type tower that holds more than define 7 XL?

Thermaltake Core W200. 14 stock, not sure if you can still get extra internal trays/brackets from TT, anymore (so many drives possible if you can), but you can absolutely add 3x5.25" bay -> 4x or 5x3.5" devices to add 12-15 more. Beyond that, stack it on a TT P200 pedestal and toss in various HDD adapter modules for even more drives.

Or a Phanteks Enthoo 719 with a bunch of stackable HDD brackets in the base and up the side.

My old small Cube can hold 20 drives using those 5 in 3 cages.
Nanoxia used to sell the Deep Silence cases and the larger ones could hold a ton of drives when you added more internal cages.

Currently have 12 drives in it, 11 spinners and an SSD.

The Phanteks Enthoo 719 will hold 12x3.5 and 3x2.5 with the basic layout. I could easily add 6 more 3.5 drives and likely 4-6 more with a little modification. It's a very roomy case with lots of ventilation and fan placement locations.
