Hi all, what mATX case should I aim for? I need to fit a D14 and a 120mm rad in a SFF case.
Currently thinking about ditching my cpu/mobo/Fractal R3 for a mATX/ITX case for one of these:
PS-07 (able to fit 120mm on top as exhaust)
Any other recommendations?
Because friends want to build a budget gaming system, I can sell my old CPU/Mobo and upgrade to Ivy myself.
I've fallen in love with the Temjin TJ08-E but 2 things:
1) I've been hearing less than optimal things about the AP181 on it
2) Guessing I cannot fit the 120mm rad on the rear exhaust with a D14
Separate question: I have a Xonar DG - Do any mATX mobos exist with PCI slots? If not, might as well go ITX since it's the only expansion card I have!
The last requirement is for the mobo but it doesn't seem there exist any quality mATX motherboards at MicroCenter that have PCI slots.
That is all! D14 + 120mm rad are the biggest factors that're tripping me up right now. The PS-07 is going on sale for $68AR on amazon right now, so that's what I'm leaning towards.
What would you guys do with this system?
