Might just have to build my own. It looks like all of the ones that are small enough, are over $200. The size of the Cerberus X is about right, at 19.4L. I'm looking for one that is about as small as it can possibly be, and still put a full ATX motherboard inside.

Just all the standard stuff that would fit in a case the size of the Cerebrus. A full ATX motherboard, a GT 620 graphics card (will play 1440p video), a fairly short cooler, a 400 watt power supply, and an SSD. But yeah looks like I'll just throw together my own. Seems I'd be able to buy one, but I don't want to at that price. I'd consider it at half that. But $250? Pass

Yeah, it's rough paying boutique prices for a top notch case from a small batch supplier. But you get what you pay for, and I am personally extremely impressed with the build quality of my $350ish (with extra panels, PSU plates, accessories, etc.) Cerberus X. Now if HDPLEX could hurry up and deliver their damned 800W DC-DC PSU, I could finish the damned thing!

But to be clear, as much as I am quick to defend the economics of small case builders like Dancase, NFC, and Chimera, I get that it's boutique for a reason. Most people don't need/desire that level of quality and customization. Nevermind the people that simply can't afford to throw $300 at a freaking case.

I've gotten some pretty garbage $100ish cases though, so try not to be too quick to just buy the cheapest thing that'll fit your motherboard. Also make sure it has the room to fit your desired HSF, cooler, full length GPU (including height!), HDDs, etc.

This is getting long but...
Quick question, why do you want/need a full ATX motherboard with those minimal requirements? Why are you wasting your time with a GT 620? I'm pretty sure the onboard Intel GPU would run about as well, and the $80ish you'd be spending on a GT 620 would be better spent on an RX 550, or stepping up to a GTX 1050.

I know this is an old topic but since I am picking one up I thought I would give the Streacom BC1 a mention. You can get one for ~$200, it's an openbench and it fits all form factors including EATX. You can pick up a PWR/Reset unit for about $20 that has USB 2.O and audio/mic 3.5 jacks as well. I am picking up this bench table from quietpcusa.com for personal as well as future client build testing as well as onboard rigid tube routing. But it's solid enough to put a personal build on and nice enough looking that it won't be an eyesore on your desk.

If openbench isn't your cuppatea then look through their case offerings. I looked up this bench through OB1 and they listed at $200. quietpcusa.com has them listed @ $139 for aluminum and $141 for both the Red and for the Black. Not sure they have anything for ATX standard but it's worth a look as their prices are reasonable enough I would give them a shot.

Mountain Mods has three small cases:
The Bob Slay, Bob Slay v2 and the H2go.
I have had all three at one point or another and would only receomend the H2go.
The Bob Slay is a nice small case but the PCI bracket is very fragile prorn breakage.
Videocard sizes are another issue but with todays tech can be overcome.
With the Bob Slay V2, I had QC issues with the Motherboard tray from day one, rendering it useless.
I had to make a new one-(but that's another disscussion for another day)
I really enjoyed my H2go case as it's the perfect size and can do some watercooling.
Hope this helps
