Best case for the $$$ Mini atx

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Currently I am in the market for a new case and was hoping to get someones opinion.
I am currently working with an evga Hadron Air Case. It's a solid case and worked well when I got it. The problem is my computer is constantly overheating. I'm running 5 ssd and a rom drive with an gtx 760sc card.
Pluz all the basic stuff. Also thought I should ad. This case only fits two of the 5 drives.

What's your favorite case and why?

You should clear up a bit in what you mean. The EVGA Hadron is mini-ITX and offers quite good cooling actually (imo). So if your main issue is the overheating maybe there is a way to solve it other than buying a new case in which the same problem might occur. If you want to fit many SSDs in a super small form factor the ideal case is the ncase M1, but that one is not very cheap.

I was looking at a ton of Lian-Li cases today, which obviously aren't really budget cases, but they look great. Maybe worth checking out: http://www.lian-li.com/en/products/#37/1/list

This one has a 140mm intake on it, so it'll probably help with your cooling issue much more since I don't think the Hadron has a front intake: http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-q18/

You problem might be the fans and how they are set up and or your CPU cooler - how it is positioned and if seated properly.

Is you GPU a blower style one?

5 SSDs will not produce heat but can cause problems if placed in wrong locations, example where fans should be.

Post a picture.

Sorry for the delay in response, busy week funeral yesterday and 68 hours this week so far. As the positioning of the drives are one above the 2 drive bay. One ghetto mounted to the inside rear back (where if I ran Liquid cooling). One just kinda hanging on the side with a zip tie. As far as my Gpu its an dual fan, rear blower style. I have been looking at some cases lately and seen the Corsair 900D, Its massive yet I could finally build something that would support 3way sli or 4way gpu's possibly some Titan Z's or wait till the 800 series comes out.


I will post pictures when I get off work.

Cooler, CPU, fan orientation, temps, ect. We need more to work with here, because the Hadron should be doing just fine.
