    Ok, peeps.

    I have this Gigabyte H55M-USB3 mobo. It is a mAtx board. The problem is that i a year ago decided to stash it into a midi tower, namely the Fractal Design Define R3. Now i have decided that instead of using this astonishingly heavy weight case (for its class), i want to buy a small mAtx case.

    The case should be as small and light as possible, it should look gaming-ish:rock:. And it should also be able to hold my HD6850, which is 21,6cm long, and my CoolIt Vantage. It would also be preferable if it is cheap.:blush:

    These are the cases i have looked into:

    In-Win Dragon Slayer (+Looks gaming-ish, holds my HD6850 and my Vantage, +Cable management, +cheap, -Too big)

    Ace Ecco 220 (+holds my HD6850 and Vantage, +cheap, -no cable management, -doesn't look gaming-ish)


    Do you have any cases to reccomend?

    Thanks in advance ;)

    Easy!

    NZXT Vulcan is by far my favourite MATX 'Gaming' chassis!

    Been researching matx cases myself for a build and the shortlist has come to Arc Mini, Define Mini or PC-A04 but I think our aesthetic tastes are a little different...

    This is an image they actually use on the NZXT product page for the Vulcan case, all be it under the 'user' gallery!

    What about the Silverstone Fortress FT03B? I can't say I have any experience with it or whether it will suit your needs / tastes but it seems a very decent M-ATX case. Read a few reviews on it. You'll have to check that your graphics card will fit ok as well.

    Okay, i see i may have overtalked myself a little bit. :eek:

    This is what I really ment:

    A Nice, cool, awesome mAtx case

    As small as possible, the Core 3000 is not small, neither is the Arc.
    And the Core 1000 and Silverstone FT03B is too minimalistic for my taste. As for the NZXT Vulcan I don't find it in any of the netshops here.

    Sry to throw away all your good advice.

    Got any more? plz? :rolleyes:
