Small Gaming Case

Driv3r

54 months ago

Im looking for a small Micro atx case that would be suited to gaming. I dont have much space so a smaller matx case is needed.

i currently have the corsair 300r and i find that it is too big for the space that i have.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

I just ordered one of these. https://www.ncases.com/

Expensive, but really great design. It is mini-itx however.

I've done some research and another good one is the fractal design Node 304 if you are ok with mini-itx.

Good luck

yep he said micro atx. the Ncase M1 is expensive but it is the best mini itx case IMHO. (small without sacrifices)

Many thanks for bringing these to my attention. Both Brands seem to be good choices. But i will wait a little while and consider more options. i dont want to rush and end up with a case im not happy with again.

In which dimensions would you like it to be smaller?

Preferably height.

i seen the following desktop in person at a shop

I Found the size to be ideal. i will try finding matx cases with similar dimensions.

Height: 36.38 cm (14.32 inches) Width: 16.5 cm (6.50 inches) Depth: 38.45 cm (15.14 inches)

If any cases with similar dimensions spring to mind, be sure to suggest them pal :)

Well a lot of gaming cases will be a lot wider than that in order to fit tall CPU coolers, so your best bet is probably to go the direction a couple other posters suggested, and use a HTPC case. Otherwise, I like the PS07 and TJ08 cases. Sentey might have some worth looking into, too.
