mATX case that fits Noctua NH-D14 - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Arc Mini is a very nice case, but it almost has the size of a mid tower. If you truly want small then the TJ08-E would be the choice.

Farmer Boe, how was the cable management in the box? Airflow?

From the short research i did on the fractal. It appears silverstone has the slightest edge in terms of raw airflow.

But honestly, the hard drive setup in the fractal is much better than the silverstone. So unless you are planning on cramming a couple video cards in there you are better off with the fractal.

It is disappointing the clearances on the hard drive bays against the d14. Farmer bo, can you give me the distance from the 180mm fan to the heatsink on the d14? it looks about 4.25in?

You should have turned the tower around so that Noctua on the top of the towers read correctly.

Other than that it looks like a nice mini build.
