Recommend me a super small mATX case

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Doesn't need to have space for a GPU, only enough room for an mATX mobo, stock heatsink and standard ATX PSU.

I was looking at the silverstone tj08 and as pretty as it is, it's a little bit expensive and has a lot of features I won't be needing.

Preferably something that looks nice and is near the $50-$70 range.

This case is super small and is well reviewed.

Nice, thanks! Any other recommendations for a more upright design?

You know, as far as that price range goes it's a tough call. Here are a few more super small cases that have good reviews.

I actually think this one looks pretty slick...

I think the silverstone or inwin would be your best bet as far as quality. All of the stuff I've had or experienced from silverstone has been impressive

Yeah Silverstone is pretty high end when it comes to cases. I'm looking for mATX though, not ITX. Those cases are pretty slick though....

Oh wow, that's almost perfect. It's out of stock at most of my local stores but I might actually just snatch one up when stock arrives. Thanks!


CAN ANYONE GO SMALLER YET? biggrin.gif (and look that minimalist as well)

Ouch price tag slap, but nice case nonetheless! Keep em coming thumb.gif

Doubtful anything can beat price/performance for the core 1000 though.
