Hello everyone.

I am looking for a case that can fit a ATX motherboard in it. I will not use optical drive and will use only one, maybe two, HHD. And one SSD for sure. A graphic card like Asus Strix 970. A cpu cooler like Hyper 212 EVO and as the title of this topics says the smallest i can get with this parts in it.

If any of you have any suggestions i would really appreciate it!

Thanks in advance.

the smallest case that will fit an ATX motherboard is the Lian Li PC-A05FN. It will fit any air cooler..

Well you're limited if you want a 212 Evo since it's a reasonably tall cooler, in the realm of small cases. Otherwise I would say a HTPC case like a Node 605.

If I use standard Intel cpu cooler. Would I get some more cases to look at? Do you have any suggestions on Air cpu cooler with a low profile?

Thanks for the answer so far, I will take a look at some Node 605 reviews.

Why do you want an ATX motherboard anyways? Picked up one for a good deal or something?

Best deals i've seen are on ATX mobos.

Fair enough, but a small case that supports ATX mobos might run you more than what you're saving.

There's plenty of lower profile aftermarket coolers, and you're not limited just to the stock one, it's just that coolers around 160mm do limit you sometimes.

I never thought a rear-facing 5.25" bay would be a thing. But the execution of this case is brilliant.

another option is the s340

It says micro ATX mobo on the description. I don't know if I could put a full ATX mobo in there. But thanks anyway, seems to be a nice case.

MOTHERBOARD COMPATIBILITY: ATX, Micro ATX, Mini ITX

It also looks like it would support a ATX motherboard on the amazon page.

I don't see where it says that, just that it says Micro ATX. The Silverstone website also doesn't have ATX listed. =)

I just reported the error http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-case-ps07bw

For some reason last night it looked big enough to house a ATX case but now that I look at it again, there is no way one could fit.
