Re: Nice new Mini Cases

Arkos, or anyone else, have you ever made or know if a micro-atx motherboard and a small case would be difficult to install and fit quality stuff in? Not dual video cards or anything. I'm thinking I want my next computer to be one because I hate big towers.

Re: Nice new Mini Cases

Some of the new Asus micro boards are great, built one a while ago for a HTPC in a fanless case and it runs BF1942 fine too.

They are not difficult to do but its all in the planning.  Get case first then you can see what will fit and go from there. smile

Most mATX cases will allow full length graphics cards, and a few drives.
When saying "small case", just ensure that it is mATX compatible.
There are a bunch to choose from:

Re: Nice new Mini Cases

Yea, I've browsed a bunch. How his cooling them? With such cramped space and the heat from CPU and graphics card, you'd need some good cooling but it seems most heatsinks are large. The one on my current computer is massive!

Re: Nice new Mini Cases

A lot of them are using heat pipe technology taking the heat to one side of the case where it is dissipated.
This is the one I used but there are many on the site:

There are some mini case, where you can plug mAtx Boards.

Those boards can handle also highend CPu's and Graficcards.

Even a MiniITX Board can handle everything.

If you go with a slim mATX case, then water cooling may be your best option if planning to overclock.
Otherwise, a stock cooler [should] fit.  The mfg specs for a given case will have that info.

That's the board that I was going for with the new Ryzen build, but really wanted mATX this time.
Grabbed this one for a song as a package deal with the processor:

Lovin it so far.

Re: Nice new Mini Cases

I've been looking at different m-atx cases, but probably won't go with the slim ones or ones specifically made for the micro ITX ones. Probably a short tower or a cube. Quite a few good ones available smile

I won't get one for awhile. Just keeping my eyes open and reading up on them ^.^

Re: Nice new Mini Cases

This isn't any high-end case at all, but it was free-after-rebate a few years ago.
No cable management, but it'll accept a 120mm water cooler if desired,
and a 240mm if I were to pull out a few drive cages.
http://cougargaming.com/products/cases/spike/index.html

Speaking of "cubes", this is my m-itx case..  No room for tall air-cooler,
but a decent water cooling option is easy enough.
