Heya
I am planning on building an SFF rig that is as small as possible and still has an RTX 3070 (any kind as long as it is a 3070) and a 5600X in it. What is the smallest case that can fit one? Right now I have the Velka 5 V2 in mind. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Velka 5 rev 2.0 is the smallest for sure, that is if you are comfortable with 45-degree riser bends, rerouted I/O, and a FlexATX PSU (They sell a black 600w FlexATX for just $100 bundled with a Velka 5 rev 2.0, and $139.99 sold seperately)

Here is a list of 3070s that will fit in the Velka 5 rev 2.0:

Keep in mind the MSI Twin Fan is NOT the MSI Ventus 2x
Blower cards are okay but not recommended

Pretty much the only card that is on sale is the Nvidia 3070 Founders Edition

Smallest case in absolute terms - Velka 5.

Smallest case without making cable management a complete nightmare - Dan A4, ZS A4/A4S

Smallest case without using a riser and allowing for a decent sized CPU cooler - SGPC K60

Smallest case without using a riser, allowing for a decent sized CPU cooler and without using Taobao - Lazer3D LZ-XTD, Sugo SG05/06/13.

I just finished a 5600X/RX6800 build in the ZS A4S V3. Its like a smaller version of the Dan A4 and the build quality is outstanding. Its a bit bigger than the Velka 5 2.0, but you can use a Black Ridge and cable management is a bit easier. If you're cool with a flex atx PSU, I would reccomend this over the Velka and the Dan
