Hello, sorry i am french and English not my good language

I look for mini case or case small, with :

- 3 pci card for gpu graphical.
- motherboard and gps opposite. Gpu right and motherboard left (or other directions).
- fan into case in all directions (front, rear, up).
- View motherboard and gpu for outside case.
- Cpu up 110 mm for mimimun ( for put in NH-D9L ).


(My hard drive is only ssd sata and ssd nmve)

Need case for my travel.

Know case for my ?



Thank you

With some modification (GPU in place for PSU), you can use Raijintek Metis Evo, but it is 22L size:
- 3 slot GPU sandwich layout (maybe possible with vertical GPU bracket: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33062883261.html )

- fan into case in all directions (front, rear, up)
Front - ok, rear - 2x92mm, up (need modding to mount fans instead GPU), but bottom supports 120+92



- View motherboard and gpu

- Cpu cooler support > 110 mm (NH-D9L)

But supports GPU up to 280mm:

Hi, fellow french member and welcome on board.

Let me ask a quite important question: do you have any size restriction since you'll travel with the case ? Height, length, width ?

Also, what's your budget ?

Edit: Or maybe you already settled on the Sliger SM580 ... ;)

You'll have to be more specific ....

size very small but i want put many fan
What's very small for you ? It's variable from one user to another (for some SFF is <20L, for others it's <5L)

Budget, not too expensive
Not too expensive: Same here ... <100€ ? <200€ ? <300€ ? Give us a budget

Where are you willing to order from ? France only ? Europe ? Worldwide ? Depending on where you'll get it from, shipping will increase and customs might apply.

You will travel with it ... does weight matter to you ? Aluminum ? Do you need a tough chassis ? Steal ? Toughned glass ?

ATX or SFX is such
Any GPU in mind ? You have a requirement about CPU heatsink clearance, but do you have any requirements toward GPU length ? 3 slots thickness is not everything, length is important too... Because ATX or SFX choice will limit GPU length when considering very small chassis.

It's too vague to expect any answer from anyone.

I want view cg and motherboard witch or glass or aluminum vented (better refresh)
You want aestetic or better thermals ? Make a choice please.

Hello, no news for this thread ?


thank you
You already pinged me, so .... please do not PM me aswell 3 days later because nobody replied to you .... I'm not a search engine. I'm french too, and been locked down like you for weeks, but I still work from home, raise 2 kids and does my mod job here for free on my spare time.

You'd get more answer if you'd show some prior researches. You can't just comeby, drop some vague requirements and then expect for people to do the job in your place. We aren't paid for that and our users have nothing to gain from it.

I want smallest case for my requirement ( with into many fans and NH-D9L or watercooling push/pull)

my budget it's around 150 €

I am live in French, and I want to be delivered in Fench

Not much travel, i wants case strong with tough chassis but above all view into case side motherboard and other side graphical card.

GPU 3080 ti more or less 300 mm

Better thermals because my configurations is for 4k

There are too many questions there, you want to build me the case or what ? My requirements are at 1st post

A sandwich case, coz' that's what you want, that fits a 110mm tall heatsink + 3-slots 300mm GPU + multiple fans .... That's non-sense.

Need case for my travel
Not much travel
Do you even know what you really want ?

You say that I ask too many questions but it looks like you didn't spent too much time thinking about it or searching online.

Cases like the A4, Ghost S1 and co are not meant for tower cooler.

If you want a small chassis you'll have to settle on cooling tech. Make a choice, air or water ? If it's water, CPU ? CPU + GPU ? AIO ? Custom loop ?

If you want a chassis like the A4, you might have to forget about the NH-D9L. What will the hardware be ? We have to know what's going inside of that to give you advises.

What's small for you ? 40L ? 20L ? 10L ?

What I want you to realise is that you'll have to make compromises, because you are asking for something that do not exists. Period.

There is only one, and it's the Cerberus or Cerberus-X.



Solved.

Not really ... Budget is 150€. Once delivered to France, with shipping (steel is heavy) and customs (20% VAT + taxes) .... It'll be set way beyond that price point.

And he asked for a sandwich case, with motheboard on one side and gpu on the other side ;)

Just checked and SM580/SV590 will cost you around 370€ delivered (vat included) directly from Sliger.

You can order their cases from https://www.density.sk/ in Europe, to save a little on customs and shipping. But you'll still be over 300€ and closer to 350€ if you add dust filter (which I recommand if you have intake or top mounted radiators)

I usually just go on Google and search for reviews of the hardware I'm looking for (once I have narrowed down a list of components).

If it were me, I'd settle on a CPU and couple of heatsinks / AIO and then look for thermal tests using both of them. Then look for reviews of the chassis you have in mind, using similar setup. That should give you a pretty good idea of where you'll be going.

I don't run a store, nor am an hardware reviewer, so I just use common sense, experience and extensive search.

@GuilleAcoustic

unfortunately I'm not a pro and I don't understand anything technical

For her that I ask for boxes after I choose the best for me
