  • Small case for a Gaming build?

    Hi guys

    Im going to be building this PC https://www.aria.co.uk/WishList/EbILFO_B_Iab63je8x40fg,,

    Only problem is, i don't really have the space for a Full Tower case, which i know will be best for Air circulation.

    I was thinking a Micro ATX or a MIDI but some of the MIDI towers will still be too big like the Coirsair Obsidian which is still a very big case

    I don't know much about the Micro ATX cases so i might be acting like a noob suggesting them.

    I don't really want to spend any more than 35

    Can anybody recommend a Nice small case which will fit all of this. I not going to be over clocking for i won't have a after market cooler

    Thanks

      Will that first one be big enough for my build?

          I disagree

          The mobo in your build is ATX, so you wouldn't be able to use a M-ATX case.

          The Core 3000 http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=45752 is a pretty good, small-ish, ATX case... otherwise you'll be looking at getting an M-ATX mobo such as this : http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/...roductId=44486

                      Shinobi or Z9 tbh, the Z11 looks slightly better but is 49.
                      In-Win's look okay, but they're a bit of an unknown for me personally.

                      If you can, get the Z11... comes with plenty of fans pre-installed so no need to buy more

                        The Fractal Core 1000 is IMO the best Micro ATX case currently available, but as said above you'd need to change your motherboard choice.
                        If you want to stick with that board, the midi cases I'd recommend are in price order:
                        http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=38515
                        http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=45928 (Just noticed, I think I bought the last one this morning)
                        http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=46117

                        Just my personal preference, though and of those the Xigmatek is the most compact.
