Alright you guys, Im looking for a small form factor case for a rig I'm thinking on building. Micro ATX Only Cases, if you know what i mean. I will be traveling around places and will need a small case. I already know what hardware will be going inside... Just need a case. I was looking at the ThermalTake Lanbox, but I want to see if there is anything else out there. Thanks OCN!

Cases like my Lian Li PC-V351 are fairly compact, but other good options include the Silverstone TJ08E, and similar.

Prepare for a hell of a lot of people recommending the Antec mini P180, but truth be told, it's as large as some mid towers I've seen.

What hardware, out of curiosity? Might help us suggest a case if'n we know what parts will go inside and how they could/should be cooled.

I'm in a similar situation to you, and I'm looking at the NZXT Vulcan and the Lian Li PC-A05N. The Lian Li is technically an ATX but its a lot shorter than even the dragon slayer. Its around the same size as the vulcan with a handle on it. The only thing I like more about the Vulcan is that it can take longer GPU's and has better stock cooling options. Although it doesn't have a handle, the Lian Li is lighter and would be just as portable. They can both fit as CARRY ON luggage on a plane.

with that setup, an NZXT Vulcan with all the fan slots used will probably cool the sli'd cards better than any other microATX case. except for the FT03, but that case costs twice as much and is harder to install in.

The Cooler Master Elite 341 might be a good choice. It is cheap enough that if it gets dinged/scratched while traveling, you won't be too heartbroken. I have a friend who runs an overclocked Core i7 920, MSI X58M, 800W PSU with two GTX 260 in SLI in one of these. I'm also building a similar one for someone else with recycled parts (Core i7 975X, Asus Rampage II Gene, two GTX 285 in SLI, 800W PSU). The 341 is also really lightweight.

Besides the cases already listed, here are a few others:

In Win BR665 is just like the Dragon Slayer, but doesn't look as "gamer." It also is sometimes cheaper (though sometimes Dragon Slayer is cheaper).

Fractal Design cases are now available here and with micro ATX offerings from $40 and up, with budget, gamer and silent choices.

There is always Lian Li if you want aluminum or premium. The PC-A04 are cheaper, while the PC-V600 are super expensive but "blingier." Both have dual 120mm fans that will be feeding your graphics cards.
