Small ATX case
 
Looking for recommendations for a small case that would take an ATX motherboard. Without going to some of the pricey large Silverstone HTPC cases or a mountainmods "HTPC" case is the Antec 300 about the most compact?

Check out the fractal design arc midi or mini.. I'm almost looking to pull the trigger on the midi. I like it because you can house a h100 without any mods. Some say the Bitfenix Shinobi is a good case.

SHinobi is nice, as well as say a Zalman Z9 or NZXT 210. Small cases, but still decent.

Thanks for the suggestions - I'll have a look!

If its not a system that requires tons of cooling then Id suggest looking at some of the Lian-Li cases that have a front-mounted PSU. The whole case is at tall as a standard ATX board, so much shorter and smaller than normal - worth a look i'd say!

What exactly is your budget? Lian Li PC-V650B is compact and rather awesome. However it is kinda pricey @ $230. The PC-A05FNB is still very small and $90 if you are looking for something cheaper.

Budget is a bit undefined at the moment Nothing too outrageous though :)

So which case did you decide on?

Benn actually looking down a size as well to mATX. The Silverstone 108B-E is nice as is the Define Mini (if a bit large for an mATX case) Still not totally decided :)
