Is this possible, Mini-ITX inside Corsair Obsidian 650D.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

My old chassis - BitFenix Prodigy is kinda ruined by now. Was at a LAN party @ a garage, we tested some LN2 cooling so took out all my hardware etc. But as the night came through i was too tired to put back my hardware, so i left the case and went home with just my hardware.. Now the BitFenix prodigy white case have been in his garage for approximately 4 days - and it has become very rusty and stuff like that.

Now i'd like to purchase a new case, but i cannot afford a new motherboard atm. Therefor i'd like to know if the ASRock Z77E-itx motherboard can fit the Corsair Obsidian 650D without modding the case. I know it says ATX/mATX, but i have seen multiple cases which can fit a mITX motherboard, even tho its not noted on the manufacture site.

Also i'd like to know which case is the "newest" of the obsidian 650D, there is one with 4x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0, while the other have 2x USB 2.0 and 2x USB 3.0.. Do they both have a fan-controller?

My full spec is:

i7-3770k
Corsair AX 760i 80+ Platinum
Corsair H100i
HD 7950 GHz Vapor-X edition
Corsair 1866MHz 16GB Platinum
Samsung 256GB 840 Pro Series SSD
1TB Seagate 7200rpm 64mb Cache HDD
ASRock Z77E-itx

Ty in advance.

Okay so let me get this straight, the cost of the motherboard bothers you but not $200 for a new case instead of just paying $80 for a new Prodigy?

I like the Corsair 650D Obsidian. And had a prodigy for almost a year now - want to try something different. So far i cannot afford both a new motherboard and a new case, thats why i'd like to know if my ASRock can fit inside the Obsidian for now.

ATX/mATX/mITX all share mounting holes and I/O backplates. Therefore any smaller form-factor will fit into a case designed for a larger form-factor.

As stated, mITX will fit into ATX/mATX mounting, although it looks kind of funny proportionally and only needing 4 screws/mount-points.

Personally I would have gone for something smaller to try a new case, An N200 or a Obsidian 350D both under $100.
