Gaming mitx build, need help choosing a case

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I don't like having huge case so decided to go with mitx. I've looked around and it seems Node304 fits titan but read on OCN that PSU needs to be x inches in order to fit. That being said, does anyone have recommendation of mitx case and power supply ? I really like the concept of FT03 mini, but titan is way too big for it. Prodigy seems bit big for mitx case.

  • CPU: 3370k Ivy
  • Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe 1155
  • GPU: GTX Titan
  • Memory: Corsair Dominator Plat 2x4GB
  • Cooler: Corsair H90
  • SSD: Samsung 840 500GB
  • PSU: ??????
  • Case: ????

Silverstone Temjin TJ08B-E without a doubt. It holds everything in my sig no problem (GTX 690 which is gigantic; it can even SLI them) , and is just 8" wide, 14" tall, 15" deep.

Thread. Check out some images of others' builds with this case.

The Node works really well for a gaming build. I used a Fractal Designs Integra R2 650 watt and it fits perfectly. The Prodigy is a big case but it also gives some extra options for cooling solutions.

I have the node with a 7870, and am using the Silverstone ST45SF-G power supply. I know for sure that all the smaller Strider series PSUs fit in the Node, as well as the Fractal Design Integra PSUs. If you don't need an optical drive, it's a great choice.
I think the Silverstone SG08 would also be a great choice, and it includes a very good PSU and room for a slimline optical drive.

It's a very nice case.

But just in case you didn't realise: it's a bit bigger than the others you were looking at. You said yourself "Prodigy seems bit big for mitx case", well the TJ08 is the same kind of size. On the plus side: it can fit mATX boards. So instead of the P8Z77-I Deluxe, you could get the P8Z77-M Pro which is cheaper and better. Or even the Maximus V Gene if you want a top end motherboard to go with your top end GPU.

The other thing is that with an H90 you will have to remove the lower drive cages.
