Moving to a smaller case! M-ATX recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone!

 

n00b here, be gentle!

 

Its upgrade time and as part of this I’d like to move from my current case (Phanteks P300s) to something smaller. 
 

I’ll be getting a new mobo, so that’ll be M-ATX, but my full sized modular 650W PSU and ageing GTX 970 GPU will be moving too so it’ll need to fit those!

 

Theres also 1 x2.5 and 2x 3.5 HDDs as well.  
 

Are there any small cases to fit the above that are particularly recommended? I don’t want anything too expensive, and I like simple  styled stuff ( a window would be good!)

 

I’m in the UK and top end of the budget is around £60!

 

TIA 🙂

Which GTX970 is it? Also what CPU cooler are you using? All this matters for a build that's trying to be relatively small!

It’s a Gigabyte Windforce GTX 970 and I’ve currently got a Hyper 212 cooler but that can change with a new CPU ( probably Ryzen 7)

For all of that, we have:

Focus Mini G Meshify C Mini Define C Mini Define C Mini TG

NR400 (no ODD) (with ODD)

MB311 ARGB

Aero One Mini Eclipse White Version

 

Keep in mind, many of these (especially the Aero ones) are not any smaller if at all the the P300 (Exactly 36L in volume)

Meshify/Define C mini: 33.4L

Focus G mini: 36.4L

NR400: 35.5L

MB311 ARGB: 38.7L

Aewro One Ecipse Mini: 38.8L

 

If, for example, you were able to switch to a shorter air cooler (154mm) [alteratively an AIO with a shorter GPU] and reduce down to 1 hard drive, you could get the Silverstone PS15 White Solid Panel  2x RGB fans, which is 25.6L, nearly 30% smaller than your current P300
