I'm looking to build a small as possible PC with a i3-4360 CPU, that I would like my Silverstone NT06-Pro cooler on, also for GPU a Zotac GT 640 that is slim and SFF ready, but the HSF is 1.5 slots so it doesn't seem to work with single slot slim cases. I've been looking around and I see a bunch of decent cases, but nothing has made me reach for the wallet yet. I need a case and PSU, I haven't bought a MB yet so the case could be mATX or mini-ITX.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

you can get a slim 750Ti that might fit your needs, I think it's 2 slots though.

Don't really need a new GPU though, just looking for a case and PSU that will work with the parts I already have. I really like the Thermaltake V1 for price, but it's a little big at just over 22L. I've been looking at this little IN WIN BK623 but it looks like it's meant to be used with the stock Intel cooler. And it's kind of ugly. But at $75 for case and GPU it comes in under budget. I also like some of the Silverstone options but I can't spend much more than $100.

I like the brushed aluminum look of those cases. I think the CPU cooler will be tight though. Silverstone says 82mm if I use the slim fan that comes with it and mount it on the underside of the heatsink. That fan is loud and IMO not that effective at low speeds. So I'm thinking I want to continue to use a 25mm thick fan on the topside of it.

So I've been looking at the slightly taller Jonsbo U2/ Rosewill U2 which comes in at just under 16 liters. So that's at the top of my list so far! Thanks for the suggestion Allan.

Nice, looks a lot bigger than actual. Had to go look the case up and surprised it was under 6L.

Yea, it's quite small and very well built. First time I used anything from Sentey and I'm impressed.

Ladies, gentlemen, here's a tip: if you only have one 2.5" bay, you can duct tape two drives together. I wouldn't try this with an HDD - vibrations, ventilation hole, heat, and exposed circuitry - but it's good with SSDs.
