i was going to build a mini itx rig, but am now thinking of putting my 2500k cpu and atx motherboard in a new case. i have a asus 750ti that i want to stick in there with a atx psu. what's a small case that i can use as an htpc? my other option is to buy a mini itx motherboard for my cpu socket 1155. i am currently running the 2500k at 4.5ghz stable. any opinons on a small case for the livingroom?

if you don't care about shape

the lian li pcA05 is one of the smallest atx case

Full Tower is for Extended ATX, XL-ATX. A Mid-Tower will fit an ATX size motherboard.

Wow, that looks like an awesome case, thanks for the tip.

Prior to considering on keeping my ATX motherboard, I was actually looking at the Coolermaster Elite 130 in the mini-itx form factor. This one looks like it's bigger and nicer. Still, it does look a little big and a little industrial for my livingroom.

I'm thinking of something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811204044 Or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163257

Though, they both look a little big.

I'm really torn about going to a mini-itx form factor. I'm a little hesitant to buy a new motherboard for my 2500K 1155 socket CPU since my current motherboard is working fine and has overclocked nicely. Thanks for the tips
