Case recommendation for mATX build

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Intel Core i5-2500k
Scythe Shuriken HSF
ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z
G.SKILL Sniper 8GB
GIGABYTE GV-N560UD-1G GeForce GTX 560 Ti
OCZ Vertex 3 + 1TB drive
ASUS DVD Burner

Anyone know a good case that'll fit the above? The smaller the better.
Price really isn't an issue but I'm looking for something reasonably priced.

I've been looking at

Lian Li PC-C50B
and
LIAN LI PC-Q08B

Have you checked out the NZXT Vulcan? Not sure how it compares in dimensions to the first link you posted, but it's pretty good looking for a gaming rig (if that's your plan for it).

Just wanted to let you know, that second link you posted is for a mini-ITX motherboard (smaller than mATX)

I haven't looked at any NZXT cases, however that one is too big. I'm looking for something small, like the two I posted.

Well a Q08 is mini itx so it's too small for your mobo. But have you looked at the Lian li v300 series? Or Silverstone sugo series except the 5,6, and 7. Also the ft03 looks great but very tall.

I think I may consider this one as well, haven't looked at the SS cases.

I thought so as well, I'm really looking for a sleeper rig if you will.

I'm looking through the ss cases from the first suggested link.

Like that other guy said, the NZXT vulcan's a nice case.

only cost me $65 can.
post #9 of 14

both are similairly priced

Another option

Lanbox Lite (just don't try SLI in that case, it's not great in cooling, it is small though)
