Yep, no doubt. It is to the point that he/she can't even be taking serious anymore.

I mean, I like AMD as much as the next person. I'm writing this on an 860K machine with a 390X while I work on another machine that has a 7700k in it. But this cherry picking one paragraph out of 10 pages is some fox news level crap.

For the price of a fury nano you can buy a 970 and then water cool it.
Real men have watercooled computers.

For a handful of cases that will only fit the Nano or the 970 ITX and not a full size card, the Nano is the obvious choice.

If you spend $10-20 more dollars for a SLIGHTLY larger case, then the extra $300 for a Nano over a 970 ITX makes about as much sense as buying a Titan X as opposed to 980Ti or Fury X.

In fact, I dare say that the people who are supporting the Nano in this VERY niche market are the same ones who complain at the Titan's price ... while ignoring the price of the Nano.

The difference is size between the CM 110 and the CM 120/130 is enormous. The only people who would consider the nano anyway are mini-itx enthusiasts, and for them every fraction of a liter saved in volume matter. For those that want premium performance in the smallest possible form factor the Nano makes a lot of sense.

The difference is 4.7". That is hardly "enormous". I mean some men might think that 4.7" enormous, but really, it isn't.

The 130 is $50 (At Newegg), so the price of the case really isn't a factor. As far as length of the case, you are talking 11.10" for the CM 110 vs 15.80" for the CM 120. So yeah, it's 4.7" longer, but let's be serious, it's not like those 4.7" is worth an extra $300 or loss of FPS at the same GPU price.

That is 4.7 inches is along the largest dimension of the case. The CM 120 is 30% larger than the CM 110.

The CM 110 is 11.1in * 8.1in * 10.3 in = 937.5 in^3
The CM 120 is 8.2in * 9.4in * 15.8 in = 1217.86 in^3

Personally I would rather get a CM 120 and not have to worry about the size of the card.

For the person who wants the smallest for factor possible though, it matters a lot.

Yeah, no doubt it is larger, but it's not like it's a 900D or Switch 810 or CaseLabs case.

That's all I'm saying.


It's not like you can put the case in an enclosed space anyway .... for air flow reasons (like in a entertainment cabinet for your TV). Either case will sit just fine on top a desk or TV stand that is most likely at least 24" deep anyway.

Nano works quietly, though. I guess everyone willfully ignore this point and suggest a bigger case which would also house a turbulent & throttling green-teamer gpu.

unless if you want to play at 1080p
also a nano for 4k, you better go with two then lol
In comparison to GTX 970, Nano is 50% faster in 1080p & 100% faster in 4K - not vouching for every other title, of course...

Seriously, until AMD either adds DHCP 2.2 support and HDMI 2.0 ... or that $130 DP1.2 to HDMI 2.0 converter comes out ... people really shouldn't talk about AMD and 4K.

I'm just saying.
