looking for a tiny ITX case (27x7x20cm)

Post by charonme » Tue Dec 27, 2011 10:02 pm

I'm looking for a tiny mini ITX case, approx. 27(W)x7(H)x20(D)cm (inside)
So far I found coolmaster elite 100 and apevia x-fit-100, but they're too deep
No need for a PSU

thanks, I already considered the antec, but it's too small (248mmmm < 27cm)
I also went thru all the cases listed on mini-itx.com and they are all either too big or too small, the only one I liked is the Morex

Somewhere on the forum I posted a link to a comparison of the 3310 and the 3320.

The M350 is about as small as you can get while still containing a hard drive.

I recently built a system using this:

together with an i3-2120T (stock cooler) and a Crucial m4.

Hows your temps on idle n load? at the begging wanted to build on M350, but the lack of case fans worried me, so im really interested in your results.

Temps were fine, I don't remember exactly. I haven't had a chance yet to power it up in a quiet place, so I don't really know how the stock fan sounds. It's at least not terrible. Note that the 35W CPUs come with a stock cooler which is lower-profile than the rest of Intel's lineup.

Nice to hear about the temps, would be interesting to see, if you get a chance, temps on a sandy bridge i3 2120T to get a reference into what to expect in both idle/load, if they are good i might build on ivy bridge on M350

the case looks great, except I don't think I could fit a 3.5'' HDD, a full size low profile heatsink and at least one 10x10cm radial blower in it. That's why I need one of the dimensions to be at least 27cm
