Recommend me a nice small ATX case?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Recently, I had to move a bunch of stuff around in my room, resulting in my having to move my tower under my desk. I would like a smaller case as this one takes up a fairly large amount of room, as well as sort of restricting my movement.

It must:

Be able to fit a XFX 7870 Double D
Be able to fit a NH-D14
Be able to fit a P8Z77-V LK (ATX)
Being quiet is a plus!
Relatively small

If you know of any cases that fit this criteria, I'd really appreciate the recommendations. Thanks!
Best. Ever.

I think I would have to recommend the Corsair 350D. It is one of thee nicest Micro-ATX cases I have seen. It is worth the price tag.

Hey, unfortunately I'm looking for ATX cases, as my motherboard is a standard ATX (not micro-ATX).

I'm looking at either the Corsair 200R or the Cooler Master 431 elite. Are there any cases that might be smaller than those two?

I'd say up to $200 I guess. Do you reckon the PC-V700X would be able to fit a 7870 and a NH D-14?

It is supposed to support 160mm cpu coolers. Here is a pic with the phantek one.



Another case to look at would be the fractal design arc midi.

Have you looked at the fractal design cases? Quiet, pretty small, and I'm fairly sure they'll fit what you have. Check out the Arc Midi series.
