Hello all,
I am looking to build in the smallest case possible without changing any of the current parts that I own. In other words, I can't use the S4 Mini because it would require me getting a new PSU. Here is what I am working with
Processor: Intel i5 6600k
MOBO: Gigabyte Gaming 5 z170n
GPU: EVGA GTX 1070 Founders Edition
Ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB
CPU Cooler: Cryorig C7
Storage: 2 x 2.5 Drives, One for Windows and One for other things.
PSU: Corsair SF600
Current Case: Silverstone ML08.
I am looking to go even smaller! I know all of my components will fit in the Sentry and Dan Cases A-4 SFF Case. They are not currently available for me to pick up right now, but I plan on getting them when they come out. Are there any cases currently on the market that are smaller than the ML08 and can fit all of my parts?

Dr.Zaber's sentry should be the smallest that can fit your card

If there was anything comparable to the Sentry or A4, we'd already be using it.

I'd otherwise suggest the S4 Mini, but I think that your GPU is too big and it probably wouldn't fit the 2 drives, either.

The ML08 seems a decent case design (I've heard criticism about the build quality, but for $80 you're not going to score a Cadillac), so I'd sit tight with that until you can get a more 'boutique' case - if you still want one at that point.

You're not getting below 7 liters with an internal SFX PSU. Look at the Sentry if you want a console style case, or the Dancase for a more traditional tower style.
