Looking to swtich to a smaller form factor case.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

For my sig rig, I am looking to switch my setup to a smaller case and motherboard. Couple questions:

Any recommendations for case / mobo combo for my socket type (LGA1150)? I'm looking for something really sleek / professional. No gamer cases please.

I won't be adding anymore cards / drives other than the GTX 780 / SSD I already have. HDD will be removed in the swap. Not sure how this would factor in the decision of what to buy.

Would I still be able to use my h100i or would I need to get a new cooler?

Thanks.

I needed a case for my internet PC that was less than 17 inches tall, so it would fit under the shelved area of my desk. I took a tape measure to Microcenter and I found the FD Arc Mini was one of the shortest at 16.5 inches tall. It's black plastic looks left me unimpressed initially. But, when I took it apart and saw what it was made of, I bought it.

I have a Corsair 250d. Small, matte black, doesn't attract attention. Fits a h100i, 980ti, full size psu, optical drive, 3 ssds, and has good air filters.
