Default I need a 15in case

I'm searching for a 15in case. I'll fit in with a matx MB. I'll need a least 2 internal slots for hard drivers. Don't know if anyone can help me. Thanks.

I've asus tm-211 or tm-210 in mind but 211 is backordered... sigh

I built a system for my daughter using the Apevia X-Qpack and was quite happy with it.

Be warned though that it doesn't fit a standard sized PS if your power requirements are lofty.

I might be picky, but I'm looking more for a mini tower than a small form factor case.
But you're absolutely right, x-qpack or sg01 are good sff cases.

Heh....

Sorry, I saw the 15" & mAtx and for some strange reason thought that you were looking for SFF. :)

That's what I originally thought as well but i've since successfully installed a standard power supply in one. It was a OCZ 420watt. If it's one of those power supplies that's slightly longer than standard or has a modular cable system you are right, it won't fit.

Pick up hte silverstone TJ08. It's exactly 15", has 120mm fans, and is generally (like any other Silverstone product) awesome.

That silverstone is a classy looking case, (I'm kinda partial to brushed aluminum.... :) ), but from the ncix website I see that nohead is asking questions about availability of the ASUS...... :)
