Hi, I want to get rid of my big midtower and get a much smaller build instead. The problem is finding the right case. There's no rush as I want to do the build for when trinity is released in a few months.
It will be a htpc, but it does have to be gaming capable(within reason), so an expansion for a single slot card should be present. I could get an external blu-ray drive, but would prefer internal. A picopsu would be fine, as would an ordinary psu.
I'll be looking to get a better cpu cooler and some (better) fans where possible.
I've been looking at quite a few cases, and a few have caught my eye:
Streacom F7C (Wesena also has variants of these)
I'm worried about the heat issue with these, and also the inwin one will make me have to get a smaller cpu cooler because of the 5,25' ... do full sized blu-ray players but that aren't as deep exist?
Any more suggestion on cases? I don't like the look of the cube ones, but I won't mind a m-atx case if it's not too wide (IE the psu on the side tends to do that). No need for a lcd display, but if it's not too glaring it won't matter.
Also, if there's a small itx case which can have such great airflow as I could overclock, there would be no need for an the expansion slot.
Thanks for any input.
