Re: Form factor trends

Your HTPC's awesome Silverstone Temjin TJ08-E is a compact 30.2 liters. The Cooler Master Cosmos II in TR's system guide is 160.8 liters! yes but my main pc is a thermaltake corex9 which is 502 x 380 x 640 mm http://www.thermaltake.com/Chassis/Cube_Case_/Core/C_00002562/Core_X9/Specification.htm

Re: Question about possible microATX case with high airflow

It's actually almost preferential to go with a 120mm CLC mounted on the rear exhaust fan mount to provide ample space inside the Temjin TJ08-E . That's what I did with my TJ08-E. With patient tweaking using custom fan profiles for Asus' ThermalRadar 2 and my Radeon R9-290's power profile, ...

I'd recommend one of the most compact mATX builds over mITX if you're planning on changes at any point in the future. I'm not a huge fan of the TJ08-E (it just looks and feels pretty dated by modern standards) but it is adequate and one of the most compact mATX towers around. As for mITX I really ...

Before you choose an mITX case, first compare its size to the Silverstone TJ08 which is perhaps THE most compact mATX case. If you end up going the mATX route, Microcenter has the Gigabyte Z97MX Gaming5 for $95. Not sure if they can transfer one in for you or ...
