Need ITX case input.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I have an FM2+ board, a Gigabyte F2A88XN and an 845K paired with a GTX 750 TI. I had it in a Raijintek Metis. Problem is that the Metis just does not allow for a neat, clean build unless you do a build with an external power supply like I did with an AM1 build. I am debating getting a Define Nano S but I am wondering if there are better options? My only requirements are some form of cable management and it must be small enough to comfortably sit on a desk. It will be air cooled so It doesn't need space for radiators. I prefer a cube style case with a window but am open to other options. Thanks in advance.

Metis, especially the Metis Plus, will allow an extremely neat system with a modular ATX/SFX power supply and some time put to cable management. Nano S isn't a bad case if you're looking for more room but then again it's really not an itx-size case anymore. You might be interested in Jonsbo cases.

I'm enjoying my Sugo SG13. But if you plan to air cool and have a tower cooler it won't work because the PSU sits right above the CPU socket. If you have a 120mm closed liquid coolers it works great. However cable management is tight if you don't have a modular PSU. A SFX PSU is recommended as well. There is room for 10in GPUs. Also there is no window on the case but has tons of vents. So This may not be a case for you if you want to show off hardware.

Using the core500 myself, its nice because it fits everything ATX size except the motherboard but is still fairly small. You can even put in a tower cpu cooler and 5.25" drive bay.
