Solid mATX case for my build?

I'm looking for a case that will (in this order of importance):
1. Fit these components and maintain a small form factor. Longer than 15" kinda defeats the purpose.
2. Be quiet.
3. Manage heat well.
4. Be affordable
5. Look sexy.

you probably want something like the silencio 352 mini tower at 34.2 liters

I like it, unfortunately it's a bit longer than I'm hoping for.

here are more options

this one is 26.7 liters, around 13 inches long but has more of a cube shape , if you don't mind...

this is the smallest micro atx case, Silverstone Sg09/Sg10. Both are the same case with a different design. Both are extremely small at 22 liters, just 13.93 inches long

Some really cool cases coming out for ITX! I'm going mATX for this build though. Need my PCI slots.

I'm downsizing my rig and putting it in this case.

I'd personally go with the core V21. Looks so slick!
