Sometimes I just want discreet graphics and an add in drive controller and the SM5 is too big for me. Sizing for a tight mATX build would have made it just a smidge wider but the options would have expanded greatly. Other than that limitation in versatility I love the case and the pedestal. In fact I have ideas for that pedestal by itself.

Welcome to OCN!
Sounds like you may like our next project the S5 (mATX version of the S3).

EDIT: looks like I was too slow.

My keen eyes see 4, but I have a migraine, so check my work. rolleyes.gif


And you know what?
I am tempted to wait for the S5 to come down, and frankly, it's not because of anything being said here, it's all because of the motherboard choices available for mITX! SO TERRIBLE if you want a Z77 (unlocked) board!
I think there's seven total on the market right now?

I don't know what to do! blushsmiley.gif

Thanks - T

Well whatever the number is I guess that's for SSD because then that leaves space for rad pedestal and pump !!! and my drives would be hidden!!


The options in this destroy the prodigy if you have the 200+ to spend.
If you don't the prodigy is amazing

The standard mounts for the S3 are for a single HDD mound and a dual SSD mount with options for a dual HDD mount and/or quad SSD mount. Most people won't need both, so that would free up half the bay for...wink.gif

Yes, by using SSD adapters in the two HDD bays, you can have 8 SSD's (plus 2 under the MB). Good luck finding a mobo to do that though without giving up your PCI slot frown.gif

Thanks for the welcome. There is alot of great interactivity here. An mATX version sounds great as long as it does not grow more than necessary.
