The Xigmatek Gigas
might just be what you need.
An all aluminum mATX case with 4 120mm fans. At 10.94*12.68*15.59 inches W*H*D it's taller than other cubes. And it's not available yet, delivery est. March 30th for the one etailer that lists it already.
Thanks, I'll look into that. Never heard of the brand but they are being sold here in Sweden as well. I'll take a look at the Gigas once it's available.
The "proprietery" PSU might not be as proprietary as you think. It's probably a Micro-ATX power supply; Newegg carries replacements that might work for you if you want to salvage that case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLi ... IsNodeId=1
Also, micro-ATX motherboards are compatible with full-ATX cases, so you shouldn't have any problem finding something that will meet your needs
I don't think any other PSU will fit without modding. And then I could just as well hang an ordinary ATX PSU on the outside. Antec Aria:http://techreport.com/r.x/antec-aria/psu.jpg
Full-ATX cases don't really help since I want to fit the case inside a TV cabinet. A cube format is preferable.
Need to run a future full-size GPU.
Not sure what you mean by this. If you need a GPU for gaming, it's likely to be two PCI slots tall, but the length can vary dramatically. Different cases will support different lengths, but sometimes, you'll need to remove hard drive cages to do so, which may be limiting, if you're looking for a small case already.
Sure. I was just laying out the specs to indicate that I DIDN'T need a ton of 3.5'' and 5.25'' bays and was instead looking for good ventilation and, as you say, enough headroom for the GPU. I had a feeling some people would suggest low profile HTPC-style cases otherwise.
Alternatively, if I wanted to mod the Antec Aria, where would I start? Originally I thought about running a PicoPSU and how it would solve all my problems, but I scrapped that idea when I realized how expensive it would be to find model that supported even low-end GPUs. Most mods I've seen revolve around fans in the side panels:https://www.google.com/search?um=1&hl=e ... 29&bih=970
