mATX or ATX? I'd reconsider your part choices if you haven't bought them already.

Be nice to each other boys and girls. And don't cheap out on a power supply.

For mini ITX + full size GPU you could look at the  fractal design core 500. I have that with a 6600k and an r9 fury nitro. Only thing to look out for is the PSU length. I'd be glad to assist you with that if you choose to build in the same case. If you want I can fetch you 5ye other cases I looked through when building mine :) all miniITX with full gpu support

That would be great if you could fetch me the other 5 cases. ?

I like this case but I am going to have to check the size of my PSU when I get back home in 4 days. And how many storage devices can it hold, because I have 2 HDDs and 1 SSD.

I have 1 ssd and 1 HDD, I know I still have the room for one HDD, and maybe room for another HDD or ssd :)

Ok, so the dimensions for my PSU is 6 × 3.5 × 5.5 (inches), do you think that will fit in the fractal design core 500?

Getting you back on this this afternoon!

But only mini ITX boards will fit however! I don't know if that's a problem!

If it doesnt need to be this small, I'd go with the Fractal Define C. I'ts very nice and they just came out with a Tempered glass version.

Well my motherboard is a ASRock H110M-DS/Hyper, do you know if that is a mini ITX board?

Apparently no, it's a micro atx one. That won't fit in the same case, as there's not enough room for the second PCIe slot.

Someone above talked about the define C, it could be a good fit for this mobo :)

Unless you want to change for another motherboard and want advices for that?

The Inwin 301 is pretty close to as small as you can go for mATX cases.  Despite being fairly cheap, it's also very well built with clean styling and a tempered glass side panel.

 

I have a Fury Nitro in mine, which is more than an inch longer than the 1060 Gaming X, as well as pumping out several times as much heat.  Since any/all of the issues I've encountered have been related to stuffing a gigantic high-power video card into it, you'll have an easier time than I did.

 

Build Thread:

 


SFF-ish:  Ryzen 5 1600X, Asrock AB350M Pro4, 16GB Corsair LPX 3200, Sapphire R9 Fury Nitro -75mV, 512gb Plextor Nvme m.2, 512gb Sandisk SATA m.2, Cryorig H7, stuffed into an Inwin 301 with rgb front panel mod.  LG27UD58.

 

Aging Workhorse:  Phenom II X6 1090T Black (4GHz #Yolo), 16GB Corsair XMS 1333, RX 470 Red Devil 4gb (Sold for $330 to Cryptominers), HD6850 1gb, Hilariously overkill Asus Crosshair V, 240gb Sandisk SSD Plus, 4TB's worth of mechanical drives, and a bunch of water/glycol.  Coming soon:  Bykski CPU block, whatever cheap Polaris 10 GPU I can get once miners start unloading them.

 

MintyFreshMedia:  Thinkserver TS130 with i3-3220, 4gb ecc ram, 120GB Toshiba/OCZ SSD booting Linux Mint XFCE, 2TB Hitachi Ultrastar.  In Progress:  3D printed drive mounts, 4 2TB ultrastars in RAID 5.

Enable radeon chill, it helps me a lot keeping everything nice and cool with mine in my Fractal design core 500 :)

Part of my issues is that for whatever reason my Global Wattman undervolt settings keep reverting.

 

The other problem is because the card is so close to the bottom of the case, I'm not actually running any fans below it, and once the GPU fans spin up it ends up recycling a pocket of hot air under the card.  Once I have my server and 3d printer hooked up again I'm going to make a shroud to discourage air from getting sucked back under the card.  Playing around with a few ideas on this one, leaning towards a design that integrates some support for the large/heavy card.

 

If that doesn't work, I'll put the other slim fans I have underneath it.

I see, have you tried sucking that air out?

As long as I keep the fans from spinning up, everything works fine and doesn't start sucking air back through.  I'm more or less using the GPU fans and negative pressure from the front, rear, and PSU fans for all of the case's intake needs.  I have two more slim fans I can install under the card which would completely eliminate the issue, but I'm waiting on some fan splitters to show up and was hoping I'd be able to avoid using them.
