I need an mATX compatible case, please help :c - Page 2

post #11 of 31
I'd easily recommend the TJ08-E for a mATX case, it's amazing!

Also because I really like Lian Li:

It's another good case, possibly the only one that I'd get over the Temjin.

It's quite limited, you can only install up to 160mm long powersupplies and cables are sticking out of the top, it looks nice in the pictures, but when i imagine it on my desk it looks less good redface.gif I think i'll go withe the core 1000 then, there are even people modding it for dual 120mm radiators smile.gif I saw the lian li too biggrin.gif nice case, but not a case for good cable management at all.

take a good hard look at the ps07 then, its the apples to apples competitor(and i guess the lian li but i dont see too much value in it)

I guess the tj-08 is better, but it's almost the same. I narrowed down my possible choices to the silverstone tj08, the fractal designs core 1000 and the ps07. Now I let you guys or girls tongue.gif choose your favourite case biggrin.gif

ps07 if you want to keep things quiet, core 1000 if you want to keep things cheap, tj08 if you want to keep things cool

Honestly...the best micro atx case I've come across for airflow is get an older prebuilt machine...rip all the crap hardware out...and repaint it and mod in an extra 120mm fan. Some aren't too bad looking either. I use a Sony Viao micro case for my media machine and it is stock...save for a single 120mm I have inside it pulling air in though the unused 5.25" bay.

In my opinion it looks rather nice and has a really tiny foot print I got it free when I built a new machine for some one. I don't know if you are interested in getting your hands dirty, but I thought I would just mention it. Some of these cases are nice.

Yup, this! Check out a picture of my sig rig NZXT Vulcan if you'd like.

The entire side panel is mesh, which gives it great airflow. You can mount your H40 radiator where the front 120mm intake fan would normally go.

You can also install two 120mm fans on top, and a 80/92mm fan on the rear. The NZXT Vulcan also has a built in fan controller so you can control up to 4 fans (2 knobs, each control 2 fans), so you can crank them up when gaming and turn them down when you're websurfing/studying

It can fit a 560ti 448-core Twin Frozr III just fine, look up the dimensions and compare it to the card you plan on using. Longer cards CAN fit under the 3.5" bay, and there won't be any issue regarding shorting since there is a plastic non-conductive layer underneath the drive cage (in case your card DOES end up going under it)

I purchased it for $55 on sale on Newegg several months ago

NZXT vulcan is the most hideous thing on the planet. It doesnt fulfill the role of a mATX case as its jagged dimensions take up that of a standard mid tower. I am def not a fan biggrin.gif
