Case like X51?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, so i was just curious if there are any cases similar to the Alienware x51? Currently i do have a sg05 which is a really nice case but was looking at something like a compact slim tower-like for the GF. rolleyes.gif

Overall i really do like the x51 but other then it having to be bought a complete system, i dont think the I/O plate can be replaced right off the bat (probably have to cut it out), psu limitations and such. I think it could be more work then its worth to bring it to a z77/z68 platform with a gtx card redface.gif

But yeah is there anything similar to the x51?

Thanks for the help! biggrin.gif

This fairly cheap In-Win (US$58 with a 300W PSU!) should be a good starting point.

It measures 13'' D x 3.8''W x 14.4'' H, closely matching X51's dimensions (12.5'' D x 3.7'' W x ~13'' H). Model below is the 631.

Note that that IN-WIN only takes low-profile cards. If that's not an issue, you can go even smaller, e.g. - the IN-WIN BP-series or Antec ISK-300, both of which only have a single low-profile slot, which can take up to a 6670 or so.

In terms of cases like the x51 with the expansion slots parallel to the motherboard (to allow for a standard-height dual-slot card), there are quite a few that share very similar designs: Jetway, Morex, Casetronic/Travla, Cubid, Serener. All of these cases use external power bricks (as the x51 does), so are somewhat limited in terms of power for a higher-end system.
