Gaming pc case under 45cm !!! Needs to fit i7 4470k, asus rampage iv hero, 16 gb ram, nvidia gtx 780

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
After composing a whole list of parts I want to put in my new gaming pc. I found out that the original case , haf x, is 15 cm to big to fit under my setup. Doen any body know a case under 45 cm that fits al my wanted products in it?

This is what I need to fit and COOL in a case not higher than 45 cm.

1000 Watt power supply
Intel Core i7 4770K 3.5 GHz (OC to 4.5 GHZ or more)
ASUS Maximus VI Hero (Intel Z87) SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0
ASUS Nvidia GTX Titan 6GB
Corsair H110
Dominator® Platinum with Corsair Link Connector — 1.65V 16GB Dual/Quad Channel DDR3 (CMD16GX3M4A2400C9)
SSD Samsung 840 Evo 250GB (for windows 7 64bit ultimate, I got the ultimate for the langauge options in fs2crew)
SSD Samsung 840 Evo 500GB (for fsx and other addons and scenerie
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

Anyone some idea's???

Thanks

If you are going to stick with an ATX board it might be a little difficult. Only suggestion is to go to a site like Newegg and go through mid-tower cases to see if there any under that height. I know my Fractal Design Arc Midi is just a cm over your limit at 46cm. The best option is to drop down to a micro ATX board like THIS provided it still has the features of the full size board. You then have a lot more options in terms of your desired case size.

I think I'm going to stay with an ATX board because I based al my other components around it.
Your Fractal Design Arc Midi wil just fit in precisely so I think I'll go with that one.
Could you give some advice about how well it cools and if the corsair H110 wil fit in it?

Thanks

I'm a photographer and the only game I've ever played is Metro Last Light because it came free with my GTX660 GPU! I have an i5 CPU and don't overclock. CPU is cooled with a Enermax ETS-T40 and when I was playing MLL CPU temps only got up to about 45C. I am only using the three fans that came with the case (one in the front, one in the back and one in the top) and during the summer I keep it on the medium (7 volt) setting on the controller. As the weather cools down I can go down to the low (5 volt) setting. CPU temps are about 26-28C under normal operating conditions. I have an ASUS Z77-V MoBo. There is a lot of room in this case to build and I took out the larger drive bay because I only have an SSD and 2TB HDD.

I don't have any experience with water cooling but you shouldn't have a problem with this case. You probably can install the radiator in the top and put the top Fractal fan in the front if need be. It's a great case and mine runs pretty darn quiet. Hope this helps.
