My System Specs


I noticed in the end of the survery the bit about winning the NZXT Helmet and thought "Oh, must be some type of case" then searched for it....

Nope, actually a helmet

IDK...if done properly it makes for a nice 'shoebox' build.

Honestly for ITX systems there is IMHO no 'perfect' one size fits all case. Give me a itty bitty that handles 120mm fans and a moderately bigger one that can handle a front 5.25 bay. make them short but wide. That way both will cover 'my' needs better than any single case ever could. IE so small it almost hurts - but almost competes against NUCs and another big enough to make it sensible for more HTPC tasks ...unlike a certain prodigyous case that should have been a matx case. :P
