Cases ATX case with the Silverstone Fortress FT03S's looks?

    Title implies what I am looking for.

    When I was younger I loved the whole "bigger is better" mentality, but recently my mind has been changed and I'm now part of the less is more field.

    I was hoping to change out my older Antec 1200 for a more reserved (and potentially quieter) case.

    Something along the lines of a Silverstone Fortress FT03S but with ATX capabilities (as I'm months away from a complete rebuild.)

    Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions?

    These are all rather mammoth and extreme cases so although they're very similar to the FT03's styling I'd say they're the completely opposite of what the OP is looking for in terms of size.

    The PC-X500 is the smallest among the three. I mentioned those case because they are not deep (around 400mm for the X500FX).

    The main problem is that for FULL ATX support you'll end up with a deep, or tall or wide case. But you can hardly get one that it as compact as the FT03 on all "direction".

    Thanks for the links I'm having a look through now, to elaborate a bit more it's because I'm going for a new minimalist look for my home office and the Antec 1200 more than dominates any room it's in.

    It's not a bad thing and I'll probably recon it as a file server or something.
