Mini-ITX case smaller than Fractal Node 304 but larger than Antec ISK-110 VESA

I'm planning on building a firewall/UTM and sticking it in a corner.

The Fractal Node 304 would work but it's a little big and has a lot of features I won't need:

  • I won't be using a graphics card, so no need for accommodating a long one
  • I will only be using an SSD, and I might be able to use an onboard mSATA SSD, so no need for 6 HDD cages

The Antec ISK-110 VESA is the smallest mini-ITX case I could find and it has a VESA mount, but two fatal flaws: a measly 90 W power supply and passive ventilation only. The power supply is a showstopper here.

Can anyone suggest something in between? Something smaller than the 304 but more flexible than the Antec?

Thank you.

Check out the M350 mITX case. http://www.mini-box.com/M350-universal-mini-itx-enclosure

It can use an external laptop power supply or a picoPSU.

That looks really nice but I should mention I'm in Canada and it's prohibitively expensive to import products here. :-( My last order was $100 with $50 in fees attached, plus shipping.

That case is smaller than the Antec ISK-110.

Antec: 8.66" x 3.07" x 8.39" Mini-Box: 8.27" x 7.56" x 2.44"

Have you considered Lian-li's mini itx cases?
