Corsair Mini ITX? What do you want? - Page 4

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.

A mini-ITX case in the Obsidian family sounds just about right. Small, sleek design, supporting a full size GPU and a normal sized PSU.

It will be interesting to see how Corsair will do this case because right now, when someone says mini-ITX, Bitfenix Prodigy is the very first case that pops in my mind. Nice design, cheap price. I'd love to see Corsair's answer to the Prodigy biggrin.gif

Corsair should release 3 types of itx cases.
  1. One smallest size possible without expansion
  2. One small size with gpu support
  3. One large itx case for watercooling

1) The first case would need to be compact and easy to carry around. This is for people who needs alot of computing power and travels alot. No addon cards are supported. It should be bundled with its own powersupply and power adapter. Maybe have Corsair's version of the picoPSU and the poweradapter mounted internally or clipped on externally on the side. It also needs to large enough to fit the stock intel/amd coolers.(or bundled with own cooler again)
To conclude, no optical, not even slim. 1 or 2 2.5" drives under the motherboard tray. PicoPSU and poweradapter.
The current choices are the AntecISK100 (usually is outofstock or discontinued) and OEM cases like the M350

2) This would be a LAN case that should fit 12" cards. Should be similar to Silverstone's SUGO 05 and 08 series or the CoolerMaster Elite 120. Aircooling case with options for AIO watercooling. Not too heavy so maybe SFX PSU with the option of mounting a normal size ATX. So basically like itskerby said 4 posts above, improve on the Silverstone SG05. Maybe release a separate SFX PSU as well.

3) Essentially, an alternative to the Bitfenix Prodigy. Windowed, at least 2 5.25 inch bays, large enought to fit 240 radiators.


Judging by the amount of text, you can tell which option I will buy if Corsair comes out with that itx case.

I would LOVE to see an ITX case sort of like Falcons Tiki or the Alienware thing, with the full length GPU flipped over with the PCI-E extender so it can be very thin. But I know thats not going to satisfy enough people that want the same blah square ITX box they already have with the SG01 through 9000 models, so I selected to smell like Lilacs.

- I would be fine with SFX PSU support.
- 240mm rad and a few fan holes would be awesome.
- Full size GPU support.
- Sleek aluminum design.
- One or two 3.5" bays would be nice, but not if it increases the size a lot.

Please just ditch the 5.25" drive bay and don't put some silly slot or stealth drive tray in there.

SFX support is fine, however please support it with a Corsair SFX modular power supply.

Make sure you can bolt an AIO watercoolers into the case with no mods, but leave space for thicker rads with custom loops.

Really focus the design on a single aspect. Make a really great small gaming case, or a NAS that can fit a ton of drives, or an awesome HTPC. Don't try an do it all.

Whatever you do, don't just make another shoebox.

I find mini ITX too limiting honestly. mATX boards are the best size to options ratio in my opinion.

duh, this is not a thread about mini-itx vs. micro-atx.

Removable motherboard tray would be nice, slide it in then connect PSU cables would be farr easier then assembling it in a case that small, just makes it easier on all involved
