That's my current setup. All stock fans have been switched, 2 ml 140 in the front, 2 ml 120 on the radiator top and 1 ml 120 pro changed for the graphic card exhaust in the back. The evolv ITX is really bad in airflow and it's a little too big for me (I study abroad and I'd like to be able to bring it home easily, as in in a suitcase).

I was thinking of the Define Nano S, I get better airflow one more fan spot at the bottom but I'd need to switch the psu to a shorter one (140mm prefered) and I am willing to do so. DO you guys have any alternativ for no more "OOOOOOOOOOOH, I SHOULD HVE-moment"?

LOUQE this case looks the most promising but it's waaay off for now. Any other ideas for something that will fit my cooling needs and components? Thanks in advance!
