smallest Mini ATX case?

Ouch

52 months ago

I'm looking for a compact half decent case for a new build. It needs to have good dust control, be quiet, and look as low key as possible (for reference - fractal design define- yes, Coolermaster storm strkyer - no) .

Ideally I'd go mini ITX but I want 4 ram slots.

Any suggestions?

Edit: apologies, that should be micro atx

I just swapped from my fractal arc mini to a rosewill legacy U3 and it's just tiny. For reference the fractal is about 40 liters and this is just about 20 liters. Ok the dust control isn't great but I'm doing some custom filters.

that's a lush looking box.. too bad I've just ordered a Define Mini.. :(

On the plus side, the define has a pair of 5.25 drive bays I can rig up for a hot swap SATA caddy.. And it's not a bad looking case on its own.

Like the look of the hadron, not keen on the window, but as I've just checked and edited the main post, I'm actually looking for Micro ATX :(

Then, how about Corsair Air 240 or Corsair 350D, there's also the Cooler Master N200 :)

I like the thinking behind the Air 240 - it's nice to see folk break from the traditional format, but in all reality I think I'll actually go with a case I've used in a previous build - Fractal designs - Define mini - it looks as good as/better than the 350D - is a touch smaller and is cheaper. The N200 gets points for it's price, but I'm not keen on the bulging sides, and the massive grilly-ness on the front.

thanks for your input though - I'll keep the N200 as a a choice for a cheaper build if I need one..
