Corsair Mini ITX? What do you want? - Page 43

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.

Guess it's not innovative then, just cool.

As for Mini ITX, we haven't forgotten you guys. We've made significant progress in the past few weeks, and we're testing multiple layouts for buildability, cooling performance, and noise levels.

I think we've got a pretty awesome layout actually - just need to verify that it works.

One thing's for sure - we'll probably launch short cable kits for Mini ITX cases and our PSUs at some point. Cable routing in MIni ITX is a nightmare.

SO hopefully we should see a mITX case early next year thumb.gif I look forward to that.

Awesome! It's going to be another ITX year for me in 2014, with the Z87 ITX boards and hopefully the GPU market will have more Mini's such like the Mini GTX 670 but on a bigger scale.

I know you cannot show us anything but sounds like you have a good idea of what needs to be done and I look forward to it. If I wasn't going for full ITX, I would have just picked up the 350D instead of waiting for the Blue Prodigy but still, there are always more builds.

Thanks for bringing ITX to us.

Will it be m-itx or Prodig-itx? Hopefully the former, since huge voluminous cases are already well-represented. However, if Corsair really wanted to crack this whole m-itx "thing" they'd work on a viable competitor to the Shuttle PC63 500W PSU and incorporate it into their design since a capable SFF unit with proper amperage is the missing link in truly compact cases. Of course, Corsair would need to have a division that makes PSUs in order for this to happen so I guess it's just a pipe dream...

it would be somewhat innovative if it was already partly pre-installed onto the case. due to its size, ITX mobo's aren't all that different from another. at least not as far as cabling is concerned. if you have a case with PSU that has short wire kit already on there (kinda like SG05) there is no reason why corsair cant pre-route some of the cable through internal structures of the case. if someone prefer to do their own wiring or want different color scheme, they can always cut the factory tie wraps and do it themselves. but having wire management already done would be a pretty nice feature. kinda reminds me of how servers are built.

I would like to see an itx case like the 350d, just smaller (still room for h110 though) no 5,25 slots, sfx psu. Shorter, narrower and just enough room for some decent gpu, maybe three slots.

Like tower case cause of small foot print. Think chieftec uni bt-02b but useful. And please, no space for optical drives, havent used them for 7 or 8 years.

Good job. I can't wait to get something that will complement or replace my BF Prodigy.

What if I dont want to buy a fully modular corsair PSU then? 

It's a great idea on paper but it just couldnt work in real life situation.

I see some interesting concepts here. What is the status of the Corsair ITX case?
I didn't looked through this thread before I started paint-ing... wheee.gif

Is that designed for low profile cards only? Because 90mm is nowhere near enough for a standard height card. Try 150mm, minimum.

ATX PSU + mini-ITX board is exactly 320mm, so you're leaving no space for chassis bits or room to install the motherboard/plug the ATX power connector in.

And what about cables? They'll be sticking straight up from the top of the case - was that your plan? A cover for the cables would add 60mm or more to the height.
