Looking For SFF Case on Aliexpress

I recently found out that aliexpress ships to me and I was wondering on some help and feedback.

I'm looking for a case to make my pc smaller as a mid tower is taking up unnecessary space. The case should support matx, under 14 litres (can be like 1 or 2 litres above), uses atx psu (I'll buy sfx psu if needed but preferably not), 240mm radiator support and most importantly under $100 Australian Dollars (preferably sub $50).

I will be buying the case at aliexpress.

(Please change shipping location to Australia and Change currency to "AUD")

@boggy77I meant something "compact (SFF)" like eg, ncase m1. Well optimized, good radiator support and not just a shrinked down generic atx pc case...

The silverstone SG02 is a tiny MicroATX case... Perhaps the tiniest. But no 240mm radiator support. 

 

The Inwin 301 comes to mind.

You're asking for the impossible, basically.

 

An MAtx board is about 10"x10"  (A little under that, but this is to make the math not suck)

 

Add in space for an ATX PSU, you're looking at a minimum area of 12x16.  And an ATX PSU is ~6" Wide.  

so 12x16x6 = 1152 in^3 x 0.016387 = 18.9L

And that's the absolute smallest it could be.  (And that would severely restrict GPU Size, too.  If you want a sizable GPU, anywhere to cable manage, or anything else, your case would be well over 20 Liters.

$100 for a hot box with no airflow? hell no.

 

this is half the price, good build quality, good airflow and only a few cm larger (20L)

Yeah I agree with @boggy77

 

What is the nature of your space constraint? If you need it to fit into a narrow space, a Node 202 might be better.

@boggy77

IS it easy enough to mod the node 202 to get support for 240mm radiator (aio)?

Cause the aliexpress one looks pretty easy too.

If you take out the SSD cage you can fit in a 120mm radiator pretty easily. 240 is a stretch because that's where the GPU sits. 

 

tbh the one on Aliexpress looks alright, are you thinking radiator up top, intake fans at the bottom, rear exhaust?

I'm going with No.

 

The bottom fans would (probably, assuming the venting is okay) do okay cooling the GPU.    Your CPU has 0 active airflow.  The top fans aren't mounted to the top of the case, there's a hanging bracket they attach to, so they'll do a crap job exhausting air.  

 

Also the grill pattern on the top and rear is terrible.  I can't imagine the bottom is too much better.

 

For over 100 bucks plus shipping?  Hard pass.

SilverStone Raven Z RVZ03

you're not getting your AIO in that box.  And it an ITX Case.
