Re: SFF Zen 8c/16t system.

If you want tot do it for fun, then it's your money.  As long as you are aware of the compromises up front, go right ahead.  For me, the coolness of the small mini-ITX form factor doesn't make up for the worse cooling/noise options.  I will go back to micro-ATX for my next gaming PC.

Re: Case recommendations requested

The Fortress FT03 turns a micro-ATX motherboard on end to produce a shallow (but tall) form factor.

Too many ATX cases have more space wasted for huge numbers of hard-drive bays.
