Suggest matx case

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can someone suggest me a case for my new proposed build:
  • Gigabyte G1.Sniper M5
  • Intel 4770K
  • Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (May change based on suggestion)
  • PSU (not decided yet)
  • Monitor: ASUS PB278Q 27-Inch WQHD
  • Nvidia 760 TI (when released)

I would like a relatively quiet case and something that does not consume too much space. I would like to experiment with overclocking but it would be modest.

PS. I do not game much, but I would like to encode some video streams for my home security cameras.

Thanks!

I'm not so sure if this meets your size requirements, but a quiet mATX case would be Fractal Design's Define Mini...

It's a lovely case but at 53 liters, the S5 is on the large size for mATX and unless you're water cooling there will be a lot of empty space, not to mention the $300 or so price tag thinking.gif

What about a TJ08-E?



Smallish at 30 liters, removable hard drive bays, separate PSU cage, nice big 180mm fan in front and space for 140mm CPU cooler, or use the 120mm mount on back for a H80 all-in-one.
