Smallet Mini-ITX Cases that can fit a GTX 750 Ti

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hi, i'm looking to build a small Mini-ITX Steam Machine, but i'm looking for the smallest case that can fit this card: GTX 750 Ti
I found some cases, but if you have a better one that's what i'm looking for.

I found the SG05 Lite my best option with this mod: SG05 Mod build

I have never tried going that small because it looks like an overheating mess. I prefer 1 120mm case fan minimum. Have you written off a larger ITX case?

its a good idea, but i'm looking for something more horizontal than vertical.

RVZ01 in horizontal. Most SFF cases are cube shaped like the SG05/06, Rosewill Legacy itx, various Lian Li. Another thing to make sure is that the case can support a decent PSU. The 750ti only uses 60w but you might want to upgrade to a new card down the road.

If you want to go very small I would recommend you use a low profile 750ti. I don't know if they have them in your country but here in the UK we have had 1 model for sale for the last 2 weeks for the slightly cheaper than the duel slot models.

As for the case one of the smallest you can fit a low profile discrete gpu in is the Antec ISK300-150. With an i3 you should be fine for power consumpsion with the 150w included psu.

If you want to go duel slot card I think the sg05 is pretty much the smallest case.
It seems kinnda stupid that the smallest case that fits a duel slot 750ti also fits a 780ti(with a mod).

If you want a horizontal case,it would either have to be the RVZ01 which uses a riser,or you'd have to get a low profile 750ti to keep the case small.
Options such as the ML06 and Antec ISK then open up, which are very very small.

As for power consumption, I run a 100W A8-3850 and a HD 7790 off of a 160W/192W power brick. The 750Ti uses even less than the 7790 so I would say that you'd be fine with any processor that can fit in mITX anyways. That said, I'd recommend a T or S model for heat properties. As long as you are not overclocking and have the fans of the components directly facing the open air, you'll be fine on cooling even with smaller than 120mm fans. You're going to need to pay attention to getting quiet fans though. Down in the 40mm range, you will mainly see the 30dB+ fans.

As far as cases go, at the smallest sizes, custom is the best and sometimes only option. You get something that is exactly the size you want and nothing more.
