Yet another new case thread (matx)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So my 700D is starting to get a little bulky for my needs plus it still sucks in more dust than I would like. I have a matx board that I should be receiving soon so I'm thinking of downsizing into a small case. Fortunately I dont have a huge list of needs but a few that I'd really like to have. I only run 1 5.25", and 1 graphics card with no other pci cards installed, but I do need like 4 3.5" bays. May or may not switch out my corsair cooler and just go to something simple like a noctua, etc...

  • The smaller the better
  • best possible dust filtration
  • weight doesn't matter
  • 1 5.25"
  • 1 2.5"
  • 3 3.5"
  • room for adequate cooler

I'm a bit of a Lian-Li fanboy now that I have had the pleasure of owning one, so I would recommend the PC-V600FX (although I would change out those blue LED fans personally). The other case I like in this segment is the Fractal Design Arc Mini.
