Default Itx cases

I'm looking for an itx replacement for my define mini: it's just too big to take with me. I'm hoping to move my system onto an itx mobo and into a case 20 litres or smaller.

My first choice at the moment is Lian Li's PC-Q10. It's bigger than some of the alternatives I've considered, but I'm impressed by the design concept, the case has been reviewed as silent and well ventilated, and I like the window.

I've considered other cases, including, the realan E-W80, and the EVGA Hadron (loud 1U psu).

Any recommendations or insights into this form factor are greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Any other requirements beyond <20L ? Window and/or quietness a must?

My System Specs


You didn't mention power requirements. If 450W would do I personally would give the Node 202 a try....
