ATX Case Small'ish Form Factor?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a case that can handle an ATX board, but is a bit on the smaller end.

IE: No 5.25" Bays.
Maybe even no 3.5" Bays.

I don't use anything but SSD's in it so I was hoping I could find something with a little less depth. Does anything like this exist, or am I going to have to fabricate something, or just buy a new Mobo?

I dont think I have ever seen an ATX case without 5.25 bays. I think if I saw a case like that it would of caught my attention. There might be some out there but I doubt they are common.

Wow I love that case, it would be perfect with a big side window and 3 120 fan mounts in the top. That case is really close to what I think is ideal. Thanks for the post, you helped me find a case I love even though im not the OP lol

Cooler Master Elite 360/361 are tiny for ATX cases (the more recent 361 is 5.9" x 14.4" x 18.2" (W x H x D)) - the PSU mounts sideways in the front to make their exterior size possible. I have two GPUs in mine as well as an ATX motherboard and love it, but some longer cards may be hard to fit (an AMD 7990 is between 12"-12.4" depending on model for example):

 

Quote:
CM Elite 361 Maximum Compatibility:
 
VGA card length (w/HDD cage) : 227 mm / 8.9 inch
VGA card length (w/o HDD cage): 312 mm / 12.3 inch
CPU cooler height: 122 mm / 4.8 inch

 

it has an external 5.25" bay but if that was removed to make the case even smaller most somewhat-decent GPUs wouldn't fit in it.

I imagine I'll just have to take the saws to the Arc Midi R2. It seems like it'll work out well enough. Kind of a hassle as I'll have to re-powder coat it and such, but w/e.

OMG. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much man. I know Rosewill isn't the most luxurious of case manufactures, but it looks acceptable. I can make it shine a lot easier than I can completely re-size something else.

A bit tall. But it will work. Rep'd
