Antec Mini Skeleton build (possible)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to do an extremely sff rig with this i3 2100 I have lying around. My first choice was the antec isk 110 or the minibox 350, but I came across the mini skeleton at Performance PC's. It's a $100 case, and for being so limited, I'm not sure it's worth it.

Is it possible to mod it to fit a tfx psu at the bottom? I'd like to go to a 300w if so. The 90w should be fine for my 2100 and an ssd, but I'd like to leave some room for a dedicated video card if I decide to turn it into a lan rig. I just instantly fell in love with the design, and I'm not sure why almost nobody carries them anymore. Seems like every time Antec does something truly unique, they cancel it. The one I found is at Performance PC's, and it's just under $100.
In progress.

Maybe because it's an open air design?
You know if you have a kid home and he touches it one of them is going down xD

No kids here. So, if one is here, so if one touches it.... I'd consider it a burglar alarm. Or a bug zapper. Or something like that. tongue.gif

Are there any other affordable open air designs? Besides test benches.

There's the InWin one, that newegg use. But that one is huge (could fit 4 titans) and sort of looks child-ish to me.

edit: found it! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811108437

not exactly affordable tho :/ at $399.99

It's ugly as sin, too. Looks like $400 for tinker toys.

Strike-X Air

But it's not exactly tiny.. And a little overpriced.

Interesting, but I'm wanting to go ITX. Know of someone that carries ITX motherboard trays? I know I can buy ATX and mATX trays, but I'm going really sff. I don't like the back panel being wide open like that.
