That is one sexy case. I always worry about the heavy air coolers though. It is literally the only reason i got liquid cooling, because one of my old motherboards (asus p5q) died to loose solder joints caused by my Scythe Mugen.

Partially this. If the handle it made of anodized steel or something sturdy I would.

There's a special lab in my school where there are only monitors inside; bring your own computer, keyboard and mouse.

Some neckbeards hobo near the lab and they have a whole ATX case in there. Some people just bring their laptops and plug into the monitors for dual screen. I'm given a locker that might be just big enough for a very compact ITX case.

>>
>>52558501
its pretty tough plastic. I wish it were metal but with all the components inside the handle just barely bows at all. I imagine you'd have to fill the case with lead or violently swing it around before the handle had any risk of breaking

You DONT need a big case. The issue with these tiny mitx cases is that you sacrifice cooling and silence for a negligible of volume.

When it's all said and done the small novelty will wear off and you're left with an overpriced tiny loud hotbox with no expandability. But hey you can still occasionally fish for compliments from strangers online right?

>>52559543
Nope.

If you buy a good case, then you shouldn't have that problem. My Prodigy with a 212 Evo idles at 32 on the hottest days and doesn't go over 52 degrees full load.

If you buy a super small meme cube, sure. There are cases though. The Prodigy, the Air 240, the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv to name a few.

Not really. My little hotbox doesn't run any hotter than if it were in a full size case. I can't provide any evidence though because I am not home but when running an x265 encode using all 8 threads and running fallout 4 at the same time, nothing gets hotter than 70C and the drives are steady at 35C. When idle, everything is around 30C.

>When it's all said and done the small novelty will wear off and you're left with an overpriced tiny loud hotbox with no expandability. But hey you can still occasionally fish for compliments from strangers online right?
What sort of expandability are we talking about here? With my ITX board, I can still upgrade my cpu (although I'm already on a 4770k so there are no worthwhile upgrades), wifi (again on ac and dual gigabit so no upgrades), ram, video card, and it has two open sata 3 ports (4 total). I'd say it's very upgradable.

That being said, I'm still going to cram it all in a smaller box as soon as I can.
>>
>>52559621
Your fucking shit prodigy is 36 liters accounting for the feet. There are ATX cases out there that are 40 liters.

You don't have have an itx build, you have an itx motherboard inside an ATX case. You're the biggest cuck there is.
>>
Whats the best mini-itx case that has 4+ 3.5" hard drive slots? Could someone suggest more than 1 case?
>>
>>52559649
4l is the equivalent of 2 milk bottles you sperg. That's huge, hence why he went with mitx
>>
>>52559649
Nope. There's an ITX prodigy and an mATX.

Show me one ATX case that's as small that is superior. You can't. I have an HAF 932 build and it idles at the same temps.
>>
>>52559674
Learn how surface area works. The difference will be half an inch wider/longer at most.

That being said the itx case in the op is 12 liters. The prodigy is 36 liters.

That's the equivalent of 12 milk bottles.
>>
>>52557477
If that's the case you should be using micro atx.

There's literally no point in buying large cases anymore. The days of being 14 years old are over.

I used to think like you. "M-Maybe if I buy a big case with lots of mesh and fans, it'll be super cool!". The first case I built with was an HAF 922, it was fine. I didn't go over 45 degrees while playing the most intense vidya at the time.

Last year I decided to upgrade, I always wanted a small system so I made a mATX build with an Air 240. Not sure if I'll ever go back family. The case is made so well, it's basically a 540 but without the size. Cable management is literally done for you, there's tons of space, it's cute and compact and fits any PSU, GPU or cooler.

>Needing a case that big

Large cases are only good if you use them to their fullest potential. Most people I see with big cases are just memers who keep everything stock for years.

There's literally no reason for big cases other than being a 'sperg and installing a 3 fan air cooler, 3 HDDs, a couple SSDs and a meme set of graphics cards. If you honestly don't use all your expansion, then you just cuck'd yourself.
>>
>>52557226
I see the cooler, gpu, etc.

Whats that in front? A radiator? Really one of the best looking builds I've seen.
>>
>>52561814

It's just a custom cover for an ATX PSU. Looks real neat though.
>>
>>52561852
I see.

I really like the idea, but no room for a 980ti kind of sucks.
>>
>>52561871

You can fit a 980 Ti just fine in the M1, you just gotta use an SFX PSU. There's a line of new ones with 92mm fans coming out as well as a 700W SFX-L that's 80+ Platinum rated.
>>
>>52557355
The NCase is literally a placebo.

I was considering getting one, then I saw it was $185. No thanks. You're basically paying $185 for a case that is going to get shitty temps.

People are complaining about atx cases being too big, the NCase is too small.

I'm not sure what you mean, there are tons of aftermarket fans in 92mm and there has been for years and years. I was talking about the new line of SFX power supplies from Silverstone that use 92mm fans instead of 80mm like the previous generation. Corsair also has one coming out.
If you're talking about the Ncase, it has a total of four 120mm fan mounts and a 92mm at the rear.
>>
I use a thermal take core v1. It's good but I feel its extremely spacious and not particularly great temps. Any suggestions? I dont like the ncase and the price isn't worth it when it's like a 3rd of the price of my 980ti

You don't need mATX for better cooling. You can fit two fucking rads into a Ncase if you really want to. There's also that OCN Splash case that's made for two rads.

This design is already deprecated. There's absolutely no need to make a compact case like that which accommodates for full length GPUs. We already have Nano and Fury X and Pascal will be just as compact.

These cases will cool just as well and are even smaller.

Only issue is the PicoPSUs might not accommodate high end hardware yet but there's going to be great gains in perf/watt next gen. It will be easily doable then.

It's actually a Scythe Himuro 3.5" HDD enclosure, placed rather oddly in the front of the case (you can't normally mount a HDD like that in the case). You'd have to use an SFX PSU for that to fit like that, but this build was done purely for show and if you look closely at the rest of the pics, you can just make out that there isn't even a PSU installed.

The point is that if the absolute smallest form factor isn't the primary concern you aren't gaining by going itx over matx. Once you start making room for radiators and standard desktop psus you end up with a case that should be able to fit the slightly larger (and cheaper) main board.

My little brother's itx build ended up the same size as my micro atx that had a closed loop cooler for the cpu (I've since swithed to air cooled).

Most itx cases out there (in my experience) aren't that small. Once you get out of the super compact builds there isn't much point to the form factor.

Only iyx build I bothered with was a dedicated browsing/media/homework machine. Pentium dual core, 4gb ram.

My main machine is in a fractal r5 using all hdd bays and making full use of the large CPU cooler clearance.

>>52566308
>Most itx cases out there (in my experience) aren't that small.

That's pretty irrelevant, you can say the same for mATX being the same size as many ATX cases which is also the case.

We're comparing ITX cases that actually fit the form factor in this thread and there aren't any mATX cases that come close to what's being posted here.
>>
There are a bunch of ridiculously cool small form factor cases that are coming out soon.

One that has caught me interest lately is the set top box sort of style.

Here's one such example,

What do you actually do with a Mini ITX rig? I mean yeah they are small but a full ATX board in a mid tower isn't very big to begin with. Take my S340, it doesn't take very much space because like mini rigs it lacks support for legacy drives.

This is sexy but it will run awfully hot and because of that the fans are going to be at full speed, that thing will sound like a vacuum cleaner.

>>52566709
HD-Plex has a bunch that works with their AD/DC converter. There's also some other HTPC cases that probably have it. Try Streacom.

Why do you want a half sized PCI anyway? Can't be for a GPU, IGP is as good as any low profile board.
