I'm interested in the node 605, it looks like a beautiful HTPC and would great next to a nice minimalistic receiver. .

Love it. Poor cable management options though, which is quite predictable in such a form-factor.

The next PC I build, has to be a mATX or ITX based. All of these small cases coming out really make me want one in the future so badly. After getting my XL define, there build quality is amazing.

OK, rain on the parade time, just to be contrary,

Very good looking case.. I like using full size power supplies for the cost advantage.

That said SFX makes more sensein a case like this.

Eliminating the 5.25 bay seems to mean eliminating cable mangement. Thanks but I prefer more cable stuffing space for a case with a full size power supply. Same/same space for 120mm fan(s). No one mentions this.

Really smaller gets expensive fast, I have a budget problem with that.

The Falcon Tiki is interesting (in a "what money can do" way) :

You shouldn't use an SFX PSU with a 13"+ case since the 450W limit of SFX PSUs would mean that you can't get some of the super long behemoth cards like the 6990/690.

Buying a PSU with proper length cables or properly planning which PSU to buy is essential for any mITX build. You can stuff the cables elsewhere if you really need to (like the 3.5" area). The limit on the PSU is 160mm for non-modular and less than 160mm for modular types. You have to plan this out anyways and there are PSUs that meet either requirement. Proper planning will save you on the cable management headache and there is not much that a 5.25" bay will do to alleviate the problem.

Not exactly sure what you mean about that last sentence. I'm assuming it is about the 92mm fans. They make sense because using a 120mm fan would cause the case dimensions to balloon out in other directions. I don't know very many rectangle fans so using two smaller fans next to each other is sometimes necessary. biggrin.gif This also makes sure that the HDDs get plenty of air. I know most people won't have 92mm fans on hand but Fractal Design is known for including very quiet fans with their cases.

A large portion of that price is the granite base. SFF is a niche and trying to move in uSFF is only going to incur more costs. With more volume though, prices will eventually go down. Usually the engineering and design is harder on a SFF level than a normal mid-tower+ level.
