Its a mini ATX case, it is not enormous. PSU is not where the problem lies anyways.

It's bigger than some atx cases but regarding the psu, just a heads-up if you care about noise and cost.

In case it will be in stock and available I will consider it, thanks. The problem remains being the motherboard as of now.

Just scanned through the specifications and didn't realize its a Micro ATX board. 380T is for Mini ITX. It may be impossible to fit and even if possible probably a pain in the butt.Good call.

The thing is that the Mini ITX 1155 boards I found are not available for sale anywhere in the vicinity. So far I came across the following boards and none of them are available in Switzerland.

ASRock H61MV-ITX
ASUS P8H61-I
Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI

What about the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe? Expensive but looks like my only remaining choice. The minor problem is that it supports only RAM speeds up to 1333 MHz.

Where did you find an ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe? From what i can tell they're out of stock everywhere.

Tbh, I think you might as well be looking for a unicorn, 1155 ITX boards just aren't available anymore. Your only chance to realistically get one is second hand.

Alternatively, the way I see it, you have 2 other options.

  1. Return(if you still can) or sell the case and get an mATX or ATX case. As been said before, there are plenty of mATX cases that are smaller than the 380T andf even some ATX ones.
  2. Sell the processor and get an I5-6600(K) or I7-6700(K) with an 1151 ITX board instead.

I havent bought the 380T but was planning on getting it, I think you are right, I should rather go for Micro ATX 1155 and just get the Corsair carbide Air 240. I just have to make sure there are decent Micro ATX boards out there.

Most of the reasonably priced ones seem to be H61 boards. The MSI H61M seems to have pretty good feedback and has a decent price. The asrock boards seemed to be rubbish and the ASUS is more expensive.

Btw, why Corsair cases? Their case department hasn't designed a good case in years imo, they're just riding on their old succes. Corsair still makes some good stuff, like some of their power supplies and their new ML fans. But their cases are just overpriced, cheaply build and badly designed. They're way behind the competition.

I really like several Silverstone cases for smaller form factors, especially if you're looking for more of an HTPC case.
