Looking for the smallest micro atx case which fits 2500k + gtx 970

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everybody,

I currently have this build :
ATX case: no name
ATX mobo: asrock h61icafe
CPU: 2500k + stock fan
GPU: msi gtx 970
HDD: 1TB WD caviar blue
PSU: 500W moodular OCZ

I'm planning to improve it a little bit by overclocking but I need a mobo which is able to do that.
As I won't get a SLI nor a crossfire and I don't use nor an ODD neither another HDD, I want to optimize the space occupied by the computer by:
- having a smaller case
- having a smaller mobo (a micro atx)
I will add a few fans to have a good airflow.

My issue is to find a case that is smaller than what I own now. Here are its dimensions: W 17cm x H 41cm x D 44cm (=30L)

Does anyone know any case that is under these sizes? If possible with the psu at the bottom.

The perfect one would be:
- W 17cm (wider component is the psu)
- H 35cm (psu's height + mobo's height)
- D 30cm (longer component is the gpu).
I shouldn't need more.

Thank you for the suggestions.

I evnetually found one that almost fits my cirteria.
It's made by Silverstone: SG10 (the former version, SG09, was not the most beautiful case).

Dimensions of the case are: Height: 32.78cm (327.8mm), length: 36.92cm (369.2mm), width: 16.51cm (165.1mm). In inches, that is 12.91in x 14.54in x 6.5in (H x L x W).

20Liters or less


sg09 has 23 liters

It is even smaller but I have just seen the price ($300 +options).
Is there any other case of this kind? I can't find the sg10 here.

I personally have a Cooltek C3. While it's not the smallest case available it's very elegant.

The cooling capabilities aren't the best, but with not that much of a hassle you can mod it to accommodate 2 extra 120mm fans.

Best of luck in choosing what's best for your needs!
