Small full ATX case

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I am building a small pc for my dad.

Got my cpu and mobo, but I am in need of a full ATX case that is quiet. Any suggestions?

I did a bit of research, lian li A05NFB is pretty good! but that shot up in price .....

I am hoping someone can give me some pointers?

Thanks in advance!

Fractal Design has some really terrific cases that won't break the bank. If you're looking for smaller cases try the Define or Arc Mini. I've got the Arc Midi and it's phenomenal.

that lian li is very small already. I think the smallest case is prob the Fractal Design Arc Midi or Core 3000. That lian li is about as small as it gets before mATX (i think)

But like i said above, Fractal Design Arc Midi and Fractal Design Core 3000

You might also consider the Antec Solo II. Of the previously suggested cases, only the Fractal Design Core 3000 is close to it's size, the others are all larger, though only by 10-30mm in height or depth. The benefit of this case is it is designed for quiet operation with sound dampening material on the side covers, a quiet fan and silicon mounts for HDDs.

thanks guys!!
yes, i think Fractal Design Core 3000 will be the closest to the dimension i want, but it seems a bit loud, but cheaper!

any other suggestions are welcome!
