Corsair Mini ITX? What do you want? - Page 20

Poll Results: Which features are most important to you in a Mini ITX case?

This is a multiple choice poll
  • 7% of voters (92)
    Size - the smaller the better. I don't need a full GPU, I want a HTPC-style box.
  • 77% of voters (1009)
    Size - I want it to be small, but I want a full size GPU and full size PSU in there.
  • 11% of voters (154)
    Air cooling - I want lots of fan options, top, sides, back, front.
  • 31% of voters (411)
    Air cooling - I want it to perform well out of the box but we don't need to perforate every single panel.
  • 25% of voters (329)
    "Sleek, Modern" Design - The BitFenix Prodiigy, NZXT Phantom Series, Corsair 600T and other cases with unique designs are my favorite.
  • 49% of voters (646)
    "Refined, Aluminum" Design - Silverstone, Lian-Li, and Corsair Obsidian Series are more my speed.
  • 34% of voters (454)
    Quiet - I want this thing whisper quiet.
  • 45% of voters (596)
    Liquid Cooling - it'd be nice to be able to fit a 240mm radiator in this thing
  • 7% of voters (97)
    HDD Capacity - I want to make a RAID or NAS box, so I want at least four 3.5" drive bays
  • 36% of voters (477)
    HDD Capacity - I just plan on running an OS and a storage drive - two or three drive bays is fine as long as there's native SSD support.
  • 18% of voters (246)
    Portability - handles and whatnot are really important to me. So is overall weight and durability.
  • 19% of voters (255)
    Scent - I like all my computer products to be scratch and sniff. Please make this smell like Lilacs.
  • 2% of voters (32)
    Other - posted in thread.

God I hope not, there is a lot to like about the Prodigy but there is a lot I do not like as well. I think they can do something smaller and with more style and still have the features for a great build.

I am glad to see that Corsair is finally going to show up to the Mini-ITX party. I know if they put one out in the market, their PSUs and AIO cooling units will fit without any modification. Prodigy is too big in my opinion. Sugo is nice but I don't want to buy another PSU, Node is cool too but you have a crowded PSU/GPU situation. Now if I can dust off my H50 and a spare AX750 I have and lying around into a Corsair Mini-ITX case, that would be intriguing. We need space for a Baller GPU, but would be willing to make a compromise with HDD space. Why not make a case that would hold only one 3.5 drive natively, and at least two SSDs..... 5.25 drive is way down on the priority list, fine by me if omitted. A built in fan controller like, a PWM style one like the Rheosmart...............all this for $99? biggrin.gif

2 PCI card slots, full sized PSU support, max 1x 3.5" HDD bays since most are using SSD's along with a storage drive, room for 240mm rad with minimum clearance of 30mm for the rad + 25mm for a fan, and lastly, optimally 2x 120mm intakes in the front (for the said rad) and 2x exhausts in the back. This would be my wet dream for a ITX build!

You must also wet dream about fat chicks biggrin.gif

Seriously I agree that a lot of space could be saved with the reduction in drive mounting and not be missed by most of us. Personally my computers only use 1 or 2 SSDs and that is it. I think a 240mm radiator is overkill with the exception of extreme overclocking, a ability to mount an H60 or push to an H80 would be enough for me. Dual 120 intake in front and in back means a lot of space is being used just for fans. Fewer fans but well placed air flow would work just as well and be smaller.

I would personally like to see something along the lines of the Lian Li Q25 but make the drive bays different to give more room and allow enough room at the chimney fan for that H60 and I would be golden. Keep it lean and mean with a simply but sexy look....

I have an H60 PP in my SG05 with 1 ssd, I love it. But as I said, if corsair makes an obsidian oriented itx I'll buy it no questions. My HX650 wants a new case!!!

I just got antec vesa 110 itx case. Smallest case. Would like similar case that come with 160 watt pico and make case slighly wider / taller to fit low profile radeon 7750. Then pair 3770k and amd low profile 7750 for small xbox style case with big desktop power. Otherhand 5800k or 3770k only option for me since vesa case too cramped.
