Does anyone know of any console sized (Mini ITX) Cases?

Looking for a small enough case, will be house the MOBO, PSU, 1 GPU and 1 SSD so won't need all that much space Sort of needs to be desktop shaped (horizontall, but will be open to options about the box shape etc. Have my eyes on these;

Would preferably like a nice front on it, with USB 3.0 and of course venting needs to be high to keep temps down. Thanks for any input at all! :) Ps, will be for gaming and media streaming!

Would you recommend the boxtype build (Corsair) over the console shape? Was planning to have it under the tv, as a console would, but I could always tuck it to the side. Is there better ventilation with that type of set up?

The Corsair 380T is said to have great airflow. Not having it under the TV in a cabinet will always provide more air. The Bitfenix will be a bit more restrictive of airflow as well. Linus Tech Tips has a good review of the 380T

Do like the openness of that rig, just feel it would look a bit misplaced beside a tv, great customisation options though I will admit

Really like the look of that BitFenix one though, doesn't look cheap and also looks good and small.

Yep. It's only a few inches bigger than an XBox one, and it can support a 13" GPU, and has proper ventilation.

Not sure if it fits the shape you're looking for, but I'm pretty happy with my Cooler Master Elite 130. Small, no frills look, decent airflow, and 3 USB ports on the front (2 x 3.0, 1 x 2.0).

Give these a look:

BitFenix Pandora

Corsair 380T - best looking of the three in my opinion
