Need a case suggestion for small gaming build.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Recently purchased the Gigabyte G1 GTX 980 Ti and now I'm looking to upgrade my cpu/motherboard. I figured I would take this time and also swap out my case.

I'm looking to use either a ITX or mATX motherboard, with an ATX PSU. I have 2 SSD's and 2 HDD's(Could drop to one). I don't want to use any water cooling for this system. I used to use a custom loop and had a bad experience with a small puncture. Shorted out my last video card(which is why I just bought a new card). I have the Noctua NH-D15, and I would like to be able to continue using it, but I am willing to sacrifice if the case is just that awesome.

My main concern is airflow and dust control(I have a dog, so fan filters are a must). Next would be size and sound dampening. Since I'm not using a reference video card with the blower style fan, I'm not sure if a lot of the small cases out there would work well with my video card.

Hi there! I think you should take a look at this: http://www.overclock.net/t/1300645/official-usff-sff-club

I don't think you're gonna have trouble finding sff cases that are compatible with the 980, but I don't really think the D15 is a viable option for your new build, it's a really big guy!

Edit: You could also take a look at the Corsair 250D or the Thermaltake Core V1.
