Yep! It's also louder than hell and makes weird noises under load...

I definitely wouldn't recommend buying one. Probably the worst purchase of the build

If you can afford an extra $25 (after shipping), this one looks amazing once you take off the handle on the top. All black, comes with lots empty fan slots, cable management holes, mesh side window, sexy. IMO, a case you keep for ever, doesn't really need to be upgraded. I'd choose the NZXT for an extra $25 as you won't be upgrading it for a long time.

Yea, I've looked at the Elite 341; it's basically a cheaper made TJ08 w/o a removeable mobo tray.
I'd still lean toward the Silvestone though, as I'd be just w/in budget and it looks better.

The NZXT is nice internally, but it's too flashy; the build needs to have a more clean and/or conservative look to it.
Would really like to find something with good cable management, but that's few and far between aside from going P180 Mini (which I don't think they'd go for)...

well the p180 is the best matx case you can get,imo. but i understand they ain't cheap either. i'd go with the cooler master case. i've seen a couple on here and there really not to flashy. but they also look easy to work with.

It is, but it's not much smaller than a ATX Mid Tower cause it's so roomy which kind of takes away from having a MATX.

The P180 mini, while being mATX is hardly an SFF case. It doesn't fit the HTPC and the size, shape and weight make it unideal for lan parties too. Not saying it's a bad case but your post just REEKS of owner's bias (plus you're wrong).
post #969 of 13149
The heck aren't there any good mATX cases with bottom mounted PSUs or at least good cable management routes?
This is starting to annoy me; so many cheap $50-80 cases out now with excellent cable management, cooling etc, but they're all mid-towers.

Yea, the CM341 does look a lot like th TJ08 internally.
I'd really like to find something that would let me have a clean interior too though; none of these mATX towers have good cable management :/

Not so much the size that ruins it for the build, actually it's the looks; it still says "gaming computer" and needs to be a bit more conservative.

How is he wrong? Who dictates what "the best" mATX case is?
I'm not looking for another P180 Mini obviously, perhaps that's what you meant though.

Ook, so this summer I have two projects going on, the first being im going to put an old p4 matx system in a cereal box, im not going to spoil it, but watch this space!

My second being where my problem crops up, im off to uni soon so im after building a ssf gaming rig. The components I need to incorporate into this build are one of those new shiny 95w 1055ts, got it yesterday and can't wait to slap it in a system, a 5770, possibly being upgraded to a 5850, a h50 cooler, and finally a new 880 gigbyte matx mobo, along with the other goodies in sig.

So what case do you guys reccomend for a uni LAN party beast?
