Case recommendation for mATX build - Page 2

post #11 of 14
This is about the smallest you can get with micro ATX and still use standard size graphics cards.

You probably will need to upgrade the PSU that comes with it to something like this though.

This member was able to fit in very similar components in as well as a modest overclock.

The case they used is the same as what I linked, just a different front panel.

Ended up going with the vulcan, it's a lot smaller in person than I thought. Thanks for all the suggestions!

I guess its a bit late but i'll still post: i've just finished another SFF gaming build with Fractal Core 1000 and while this case has very few cable management options i love it, surprisingly enough cooling isnt bad either u just need to install missing 92mm rear exhaust fan. Some pictures:

only cost me $65 can.

Gave mine to the GF, I hated the fact that it had 0 cable management.
