Hey all:

Friend of mine and I have been talking about possibilities. Matt was wondering what cases would be able to house (comfortably) a setup using two GTX 580's, perhaps the Lightnings, and still be pretty understated. I suggested that maybe the FT02 Fortress, but he said that he wasn't sure if the cards would be too long. Anyone have any thoughts? Suggestions?

I, myself, would be curious if there are any smaller cases that could house something like an Asus Gene-z with two 580's, comfortably. What would be the smallest with a Noctua NH-D14?

Curious to hear what you all would have to suggest! And no pressure, we only have a couple of beers riding on this.

Thanks

@Sources95 - Looks like a nice case. Glad to hear that you have all that in there. Airflow still pretty good? I wonder if Tom's review will have a little comparison? Thanks for the response!

@Tinytomlogan - You, sir, are an evil tease! You definitely cannot put those reviews out fast enough. Can't wait to see it!

Nice coverage of the TJ08, TTL! Making me think of a tiny power rig now! TJ08 or Fractal Midi... Decisions, decisions!

Thanks again, TTL!
