Please recommend a small footprint mATX case

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I pretty much upgraded to a MSI 390 and my current ITX build with a corev1 doesn't fit =\

I haven't found any ITX cases that will fit or not starve the gpu at least under $75 so I'm going matx

I am looking for the smallest footprint matx that fits...
  • CPU Cooler - 140mm CPU Cooler clearance
  • GPU length of 280mm
  • I don't need many HDD/SSD slots, just 1 or 2 is fine
  • Window would be cool but not really necessary

Do you mean mATX or mITX? In the title you say mATX, but the post says ITX..

Me again, I think I found a good case, although its slightly over budget.
The Raijintek Styx.
  • Smaller then the case you were looking at earlier (Evolv ITX).
  • Fits all the hardware you need.
  • Proper intake for the GPU.

Edit: if you already own the ITX motherboard, you might want to check if your PSU doesn't interfere with the first slot.
