What are some good cases?
Are you int muh-minimalism?
Lian-Li or Fractal Design might be up your alley. You could even try some NZXT cases.
Don't care about having a slab?
Get some bequiet Silent Base or NZXT or Corsair shit going on.
I've got this one. Really love it, but if space is an issue it may not be the best choice.
i want a stackable mini-itx case that i can fit a huge gigabyte g1 970 inside. Also if it has more than a few 3.5" slots that would be cool.
im gonna put my main rig in one and put a server in another.
This is my case. It holds the shit I need it to hold.
Raijentek makes pretty sweet cases

For a cheap build (Les than 350) this is my case.
People WILL hate on it. But it looks fantastic holds my shit and costs about $30 while providing excellent airflow.
Kiss my cheapskate ass
Is there any advantage other than muh aesthetics muh minimalism to owning a smaller case as opposed to a larger one?
Or, put another way, are there any raw advantages to the large case outside of ventilation and cramped components, if you're not going to be doing any sort of dual GPU card setup?
Enthoo Pro, simple design, good cable management, comes in window/windowless. It may be a full tower but I never move my computer anyway and I have the room to accommodate it. Never understood why people insist the computer be on top of the desk, just get good dust filters and you are set
Fractal Design just released Define Nano S, mini tower version of the Define S.
I did a build with a friend of mine in the Define S, and it was overall pretty great. The front panel USB ports were really shitty, though, and on a mid tower case there should really be four ports anyway.
If they've improved the front USB ports this could be a really solid Micro ATX / Mini ITX case.
