Mini/Micro ATX Case Help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am currently interested in building an HTPC/Home server for myself I have all the other components figured out now all I need is a decent case with at least a 300W PSU if you can find one that supports an ATX PSU that would be great too.

Needed from the case:

1. Small form factor either Mini/Micro ATX Case
2.Anything close or better than this one HERE

Thanks and good luck with choosing your case. Those two are quite new and I just love their style. The Silverstone is significantly lighter and has smaller dimensions. Don't know how small you'd like you case to be.

Was looking for smallest case I could find that had two expansion slots.

I'd check out the Silverstone Sugo Series at newegg. Mini-ITX style and come with fairly nice SFX power supplies. You couldn't fit an ATX power supply in them though.

What are you actually looking for in a case? If you're looking at slim HTPC cases, I know nothing about that. If you're looking for tiny powerhouses you need to check out the TJ08-E, the entire Silverstone Sugo line, and all the lian-li cases. Lian-li PC-V600f looks sweet, as is the PC-A04. The PC-V351 V352 and V354 are pretty sweet cubes. The PC-Q08 and PC-Q07 are also awesome cubes for the mini-ITX. There's also quite a large club devoted to just the NZXT Vulcan, which is probably the best SFF case at that price point.

I was looking for looks, small, and ability to support a graphics card.

How long is the graphics card you were thinking about?

Sugo 05 is the smallest case I've worked with that can fit dual-slot GPU but there's a limit on length :
