ATX in a small case for me. I got some of these, and plan to get 4/6 more. They`re silly-cheap and u can stick ur old stuff in it. If u max the memory etc in the process, u end up with a pretty smart pc - that`s small!! (so u can store it )

I`d only use a mATX if it was for a specific client/job.

If that acrylic case does indeed take a 240mm rad (even 360mm) without too much hassle, its WAS to me

shame the mountain mods H2GO was so damn expensive - it was perfect for me and probably Tox

And if your REALLY opposed to the see-through case you can always invest in a few cans of spray paint.

Its kinda defeating the point to ask for an ATX cube case. Isnt the point of a cube case for it to be small, compact and portable?

Although, If size doesnt matter, stick together 2 or 3 CM Stackers and youve got yourself one hell of a cube.

I don't think the whole point of a cube is for M-ATX. Cube is a shape.. and thus I want a case for Perfromance ATX parts "to be different" and "For a change".

I once thought about rather than lying the mobo flat or on its side, why not lean it 45degrees on its vertical axis and then make a case to go around it, could place parts on either side of the mobo too allowing for maximum use of space.

Tis just a though, may actually go ahead with it one day.

I have messaged him, so just maybe.

But so far PVs case looks the best option.

That sums it up, but a little bit bigger for me. New space for expansion/work/ideas.

Under 80quid would be nice.. no more of this 200quid for a cube shape lark.
