Matx Cube case, with vertical graphics card mounting that is also a cube

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im looking for a new case, but it is going to be a while before I get it, Im wanting it to be a micro ATX case, that is a cube with a vertical gpu mount almost like the Thermaltake V21, but with a vertical gpu mount, I also want it to have room for radiators, I havent found a case yet but Im looking for one because I want to go Matx for size restrictions on my new desk I'll be building, I will have an ATX case but it'll be more of a work station compared to a gaming rig . When my brother moves out his room will turn into a studio for me so I can do more videos, so what cases you guys know of that are Matx, has a vertical gpu mount, with room for expansion cards too, with room for a GPU and CPU loop, (1900x and Vega 56) and is shaped like a cube.

tl:dr Cube Matx case with vertical GPU mount, full loop support,

Because it makes far more sense to get an ITX R7 2700X system if you want a small form factor build? Then you can just get a Define Mini or something for a compact case. Or a Core 500 for a real ITX case.


If you're going threadripper then you probably want E-ATX to make use of all the PCI-e lanes, and a 1950X because why not?

I dont want mitx form factor, Im wanting a cube case because they just appeal to me, and what happens if the AM4 board I choose doesnt have a mono block?

You don't want ITX, but you still want a compactish microATX specific case? Or does case size not matter much?

I really wouldn't worry about monoblocks, most of the VRMs at that level have some kind of cooling already. You won't gain any real performance advantage.

Im wanting performance and looks too, size matters a little bit but not too much, but Im wanting Matx

I'd go ATX at least so you have more case options, don't need to go full E-ATX.

 

And if you're going X399 at least get the 12 core CPU, if not the 16 just because.

Then you can just grab an H500P mesh or one of the thermaltake open air glass case things that are built for aesthetics.

I'm not sure what you mean by cube case with a vertical GPU mount, all of them are going to mount it vertically unless you mean it has a horizontal motherboard mount with a vertical GPU mount? Not exactly sure that exists.

There's the Core X5 with plenty of radiator support.

mATX cases do not have the PCI-E brket height support to accommodate Vertical GPU brackets

If you want a vertical GPU (unless you try to somehow significantly mod the case which IDK how you'd even do it) you'll need to go ATX. Thats not even bringing up the fact that there are very few mATX cubes, and even fewer with TG (having both is not a combination i've seen yet) 

 

Additionally, in most instances you'll be limited to a single (maybe dual) 240mm RAD in an mATX case, and they'll most likely be slim 25 variants too.

 don't think anyone makes that, because vertical GPUs are mostly just a meme, that may make your GPU run hot if it's close to the side panel.


Just buy this you'll be set.

Im going to be water cooling the entire system though, and Im willing to make a custom case if I need to

Ok, I could make my own case and it have a vertical slots, and I would have it support more rads

Godspeed good sir. I recommend consulting the case modding forum for ideas and possibly design ideas. Looking forward to see what you come up with! The idea is pretty cool
